Acetate Appreciation: 1997 Metal Universe Blast Furnace

Another post dedicated to clear plastic baseball cards, this time an insert from 1997 Metal Universe. One of the most bizarre sets I have ever seen, 1997 Metal Universe features player photos on a heavily foiled background with dragons, space ships and paratroopers among other random and nonsensical things. 

I will limit this post to the Blast Furnace insert set, 12 cards featuring power hitters of the day. A subtle design compared to the base set with the clear part having a red/orange tint to look like fire, despite not being really flashy, these rank pretty high on my list of acetate cards.
