1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice Gold Signature

Card Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Card Set: Collector's Choice
Year: 1995
Card Number: 47
Card Type: Base Parallel
Parallel set: Gold Signature

We can thank the 1992 Topps set for introducing us to the age of parallel cards.  But it didn't take long for most of the other card companies to realize what a opportunity it was.  And by the mid-90's everyone was doing it.  Score had it's Gold Rush, Donruss it's Special Edition, Upper Deck had Electric Diamonds, Fleer had it's Tiffany's, Topps it's Gold foil, and of course Upper Deck's cheap set, Collector's Choice had it's Gold and Silver Signatures.  These started in 1994 with Upper Deck's first Collector's Choice set and went on for years.

I for the life of me can't remember how rare these were or if you got one signature per pack, silver or gold, and I'm a little too lazy to look it up right now.  I do know the golds are rarer than the silvers.  And like all the parallels back in the 90's we collector's ate this up.  

Overall the facsimile auto adds a nice touch to a relatively basic card.
