1992 Jimmy Dean Living Legend

Year: 1992
Manufacturer: MSA
Card Set: Jimmy Dean Living Legends
Card Type: Mail In/Food Issue
Card Number: 4

If you read this blog or any of my other blogs you know I'm a sucker for food issue cards and oddballs.  I think this set my be the nicest non-licensed baseball card set from the mid-90's.  It's very well done with a  nice layout and foil accents.  These cards were only available through a special mail in offer on specially marked packages of Jimmy Dean sausage.  3 proofs of purchase and a buck and you got the complete set of 6 cards.  A set that now has every member in the Hall of Fame.  Included besides Robin were Cal Ripken Jr, Ozzie Smith, Carton Fisk, George Brett, and Nolan Ryan. 
A pretty exclusive group and considering three of members of the set also became members of the HOF the very same year.
