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.
