I love the 90s. It was the greatest decade of all time. People can argue different decades were better but, they would then be wrong. The 90s had great television such as Seinfeld and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The music was also great. Rock and Rap music were both producing quality tunes. From the Stone Temple Pilots to Snoop Dogg to Sublime, the list of music that was released in this decade that I still listen to and enjoy, can go on forever. I wish I still had a pair of Jnco jeans and a Starter jacket to wear.
The baseball cards in the 90s were also great. There were a ton of choices. I know that there was some junk but with so much product released some sets were bound to be grand. I was a teenager in the 90s. The early to middle of the decade was a collecting boom time for me. The Dodgers had some star players and some solid but underachieving teams. Mike Piazza and Hideo Nomo had a boatload of cards back then. This was great for a card collector and a Dodger fan. Rauuuul Mondesi was a rising star at the time. Rauuul had his fair share of cards that feature him as well.
Tom from the blog named the Angels In Order, sent me a package full of Dodger cards from the greatest decade. It was a trip back to my childhood when I was flipping through each card. Cards of my childhood heroes such as Hideo Nomo and Mike Piazza were everywhere.
Many times that I look at Piazza baseball cards and think about the trade that sent him out of LA. It still gets me so angry. Piazza was a masher and a super star. Never trade a super star. Gary Sheffield had some solid seasons but he wasn't a joy to root for. If you could reach your hand through the computer screen and touch my forehead, you would be able to notice my temperature rising. How can you trade a power hitting catcher with a cool mustache?
1. He was a super star. Never trade a super star.
2. Piazza was a power hitting catcher.
3. Cool mustache.
4. Enjoyed rocking out on the drums.
5. I actually just thought of this reason, so I might as well add it to the list. Mike Piazza had a cool mullet.
