October 8, 2009 - 1993 Leaf and 2009 American Heritage Heroes

I thought I'd go old-school and start up a box of 1993 Leaf Series 1 - 36 packs - 14 cards per pack - this box was $10 delivered when I recently bought it. There are 36 packs in the box and I'll probably only open a partial box to get started because I don't think you want to see 36 straight days of 1993 Leaf Series 1! ;) I think the cards are cool with the gold Leaf ribbon embossing on the front, cityscapes on the back, and rainbow foil embossing of the team logo on the back. I wonder if this was one of the first baseball cards to feature rainbow foil embossing, something that is more common nowdays than it probably was in the early 1990's as sportscards started to get fancier.

I'll list teams with the players since I'm sure a lot of us might not remember what team a player was with in 1993.
