Interesting list. Some of them are solid choices. Others, I wouldn't really call "great" cards wink.gif I consider the junk wax era to go all the way to 1997 and the introduction of Bowman Chrome into the baseball card world. Then rookie cards started to take on a whole new life. Soon there were autographed relic versions etc. It's about time for a new hobby innovation to spice things up again.
I don't see that happening any time soon. sad.gif
hmm..I guess to me the junk wax era here is a little list would start in 1987...i think it would have been cool for them in an order other than chronological

Agreed, how about a 1957 Topps flashback?

Large photos, simple graphics and very
interesting, informative backs . . .
