The 1990’s was awash with what seemed like hundreds of different brands of baseball cards. Brands needed something that made them stand out and be more collectible than others. In 1996 Pinnacle came up with just such an idea. Covergirl model and owner of a red Ferrari in National Lampoon’s Vacation, Christie Brinkley. Brinkley worked with Atlanta and Cleveland (who had faced off in the World Series the previous season) to create unique cards that are some of the few to actually still hold value today. To celebrate out 100th episode, we crack a couple of packs of Upper Deck for Wax Pack Heroes and they do not disappoint.

We pull ALOT of commons in Wax Pack Heroes. If you've got those Tom Foley or Ernest Riles cards just sitting around you can donate those commons to charity and maybe spark a child's interest in baseball and collecting. Find out more here: http://commons4kids.org/
