In the 1990s, the more extreme (or, more accurately, "x-treme") something became, the cooler it was. Skiing and rollerskating too boring? Check out the X Games! Atari's Pac-Man too slow? Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog is "the fastest thing alive!" Sports on TV don't excite you? Then watch Stone Cold Steve Austin guzzle beers and the Rock smack down jabronies on WWF's Monday Night Raw! Sportscards, too, caught the extreme 90s bug. Following an era of plain-looking, mass-produced cards in the 1980s and early 1990s, card manufacturers in the mid-90s utilized technological developments in printing to create some of the most innovative and visually stunning cards to date. And no company employed holographic imaging technology more than Upper Deck. One of the best designs of the decade was found on Upper Deck's 1996 SP Special F/X insert set, featuring gold etched foil and a large, baseball diamond-shaped hologram of the depicted player on the obverse of each card. Derek Jeter, the 1996 American League Rookie of the Year, was the man on the set's final card. Offered here in perfect PSA Gem Mint 10 condition, this example is one of just 19 awarded PSA's highest grade, and is near the top of many Jeter want lists, once fetching a cool $1,401 in a 2016 Small Traditions auction. If you are looking to recapture the feel of what it was like to collect baseball cards in the 1990s, then this 3-D card of the great Yankee Captain is the one for you.
