The 92-93 Topps Stadium Club Michael Jordan Beam Team is easily on of my favourite Michael Jordan cards. Regular readers will be fully aware of how much appreciation I have for 80s and early 90s cards and this one fits that bill perfectly.
Not only is the 92-93 Beam Team from my favourite era but it is also one of the first true inserts! Before the 92-93 season your only hope in pulling a non-base card was a sticker (which was guaranteed per pack). This season manufacturers started including randomly inserted cards to attract more interest – one of the highlights for me being the TSC Beam Team set. (Another major highlight, I believe, was the Fleer Team Leader set.)
The card features a brilliant (and regularly re-released) design with foil beams on either side of the player photo. Just watch out for centring issues which can be seen by checking the thickness of the beams at the top of the card.
This card is available in two variations: standard and Members Only – for more information see my blog post What is the ‘Members Only’ Beam Team.
I definitely think this card – in both variations – makes a nice addition to any great Michael Jordan cards collection. Happy collecting!
