1993 Upper Deck SP

Year: 1993
Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Set: SP
Card Number: 72
Card Type: Base

I know I've brought this up many times, but Robin's career ended just as things were starting to heat up in the baseball card market.  The cardboard one-up-manship started right around now with card companies trying to one-up the other with different gimmicks.  They started offering higher end products, not like today, but still a lot pricier then their flagship products.  

1993 marks the inaugural year of SP, a brand that Upper Deck still puts out.  This set also has probably the most iconic rookie card of the 90's, Derek Jeter's and his rookie card carries about 95% of the value of the set.

Still Robin does have a few cards scattered around the various higher end sets from this time, SP included.
