Can you say Sportsflics?
Since Sportsflics are always hard to scan, I've also included a scan of the card backs below. These 1994 Sportsflics Rookie/Traded cards include (top row) 1B Tim Hyers, SS Ray Holbert and P Donnie Elliott. (Second row) 1B Dave Staton, 3B Keith Lockhart and 2B Luis Lopez.
In 1986, the baseball card distribution world got just a little bit more crowded, as Sportflics became the fourth fully licensed card producer. Their intitial 200-card set was developed by Optigraphics, the Texas-based printing company who had earlier produced Kellogg's 3D cards.
1994 Sportsflics LF Phil Plantier, 2B Luis Lopez and a 1995 Sportsflix P Andy Benes.
At the time they came out, these 3-D sports cards were pretty cool. I thought it introduced a rather unique innovation during a period when baseball cards had that "mass-produced" feel to them. The main drawback that I can remember about the cards at that time, were the price - about 75 cents for a three-card pack. Actually, that's quite laughable in this day and age of "Premium Products.
You can see this technology continuing to be used in today's cardboard offerings.
