#394 Checklist 1 of 6
About the Back: Cards 58-132 include only two Hall of Famers - Barry Larkin and Dave Winfield. But Derek Jeter is a shoo-in, and you could make a case for Larry Walker. Sadly, this list also includes the first two now-decased players in the set, Carlos Martinez and Russ Swan.
11-Year-Old Kevin Says: You'd better believe that I filled in the boxes on my original copies of these checklist cards, in some combination of blue, red, and black ink. (Whichever color pen was handy at the time.) If the originals weren't buried in boxes of duplicates, I might show them here.
On This Date in 1993: March 18. The FBI's standoff with cult leader David Koresh at his Branch Dividian compound in Waco, TX is now in its third week. The FBI broadcasts a message to Koresh's followers, promising that they will be treated fairly if they come out.
