Acetate Appreciation: 2008 Stadium Club Beam Team
Here we have a 52 card insert set of acetate cards with sticker autographs and parallels in Black and White numbered to 99, Gold numbered to 50, Platinum numbered to 1 and 4 printing plates. The stained glass effect makes for a pretty interesting card and makes good use of the clear acetate material, but the parallels discard the multi-colors and really don't look as good. I am a pretty big fan of these and the scans really don't do the cards justice as they look really good when held up to the light. Another reason to miss Stadium Club.
