Score gave it a good try, but their 91-92 set just doesn't stand up to their excellent 90-91 series. The diagonal red border works okay on the regular cards, but is very overpowering on the horizontal cards which were the company's strong point in the 90-91 set.
I guess that part of my problem with this, and most of the other 91-92 sets, is that there were just too many of these cards around. There were no shortages of the previous years' cards, but these cards, at the time, were easier to find than a Calgary Flames jersey at the Saddledome. I guess I lost a little enthusiasm when I started putting together my third complete set. By the time I finally stopped getting these cards as birthday presents I didn't even look at the cards in the pack-- I'd just open them and put them in a box. But I don't want to complain too much. It is still better than the uncollectible sets they have now.
Anyway, Score 91-92 has most of the same content from the previous year, though they do add in some brothers, highlights, season leaders, the Crunch Crew, and a few Lafleur paintings just to make things interesting.
Five of my favorites:
#72 - Dave Gagner -It is well documented that Grant Fuhr was doing cocaine during the peak of Edmonton's dynasty in the mid-80's. I wonder if golf ball eyes here also needed an extra kick to get going. He mellowed out by the time they took his photo for the back.
#261 - Man of the Year - This card was pretty hot when it first came out.
#304 - Shark Attack! - I'd nominate this as one of the worst cards of all time. Another, even worse, look at the Sharks' sad roster mostly made up of career minor leaguers.
#312 - Wayne Gretzky Franchise - Gretzky could look pretty androgynous at times. Like when Andy Warhol painted him.
#307, 308, 309 - The Crunch Crew - They're all worth seeing.
