Acetate Appreciation: 1998 Circa Thunder - Thunder Boomers
One of my favorite acetate cards comes from one of my least favorite sets, 1998 Circa Thunder. While the 1998 Thunder set has some of the ugliest base cards, the Thunder Boomers insert makes up for it. I am a sucker for wooden borders, so the broken wooden fence theme rates pretty high in my books, and the clouds fill the negative space nicely. The cartoony font fits with the design and makes for a really nice card. The 12 card checklist is pretty solid with the usual late 90's home run hitters such as Bonds, Piazza and McGwire.
