Unfinished Cup:1996 Playoff Absolute Football

My coffee is ready, so let's get onto another new post on Cards Over Coffee.

This marks my 6th day in a row with a post on here, I can't remember the last time I was able to pull that off. However, I am hoping not to disappoint you guys by posting yet another Unfinished Cup post. I knew there would be a lot of posts in this series, but I had expected to spread them out a little more. With no incoming mail days, there isn't really much else to post about right now.

So, I apologize for another one of these today.

 Anyways, let's get on with today's post.

*takes a sip*

Sometime, when I have more time and am not lazy (I know I am not the only blogger who admits to this), I should list off my Top 10 favorite base cards sets of the 90's. I mention this because today's base card set would be on there.

1996 Playoff Absolute absolutely nails a unique base design by putting players on a card with their team stadium in the background. It's not anything that had been seen yet and not even seen today again. I think this kind of design is pleasing to the eyes.

I remember opening up a few packs back in the day, but never considered chasing the base set. It is a challenging one to chase as there are multiple tiers to the set. The only way you could pull some of the tiers was opening up the pack that was within the pack of cards. Did you comprehend that or need to read that again? There was an unopened pack within the unopened pack of cards which contained the harder-to-find base cards. Another unique part of the product.

So this makes my chase a little tougher so my want list is deep on this one,

Like I said, a lot of needs on this one.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thoughts on today's product is welcomed in comments.

Hope everyone has a great Saturday.

  1. Is there a bsseball set like this? I'd totally chase that one.
