Some More WIlliams Cards

Yesterday I had the Cubs from Ted Williams Card Company's 1993 set. Today I've got the cards from 1994. Again, a lack of license limited the issue to old-timers. The set size was bumped up by two to 162, while the Cubs in the set dropped to only three.

One nice thing is that the three Cubs are different than the five that were in the previous sets. Too often, sets that feature stars from the past just use the same guys over and over. It's nice to not have any reruns.

As with the 1993 cards, I like the design of these cards. Though the company was around for only a couple years, they had decent designs on their cards.

Here is a nice colorized shot of Hall of Fame catcher Gabby Hartnett at Wrigley Field.

This card has a nice action shot of shortstop Don Kessinger going into the hole for a grounder.

This if my favorite Bruce Sutter card. What I like most is that you can see the split-finger grip he has on the ball. That pitch was his bread and butter, and the card gives us a nice look.
