The title card has some discoloration on the backside from a rubber band that originally bound the set. The card art was hand-drawn by Paraskevas, then printed in a limited edition set and given away to art directors he worked with at the time (he was doing a lot of editorial illustration back then), along with his friends and patrons. Paraskevas produced baseball card sets for three years: 1988, 1989 and then again in 1994. These are printed on thick, card stock paper.
These sets are considered some of the scarcest series of baseball cards in the modern era by some collectors. Artists: Michael Paraskevas Player Cards Include. Mickey Lolich Detroit Tigers (19631975). William Harold Bill Terry New York Giants (19231936).
