#395 Checklist 2 of 6

About the Front: Three Hall of Famers in Frank Thomas, Dennis Eckersley, and Greg Maddux, with Ken Griffey, Jr. almost certainly making a fourth next year. Steve Olin is the only now-deceased player to appear.

About the Back: Four more Hall of Famers on the back - Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Paul Molitor, and Carlton Fisk. Jeff Bagwell is a notable snub who will hopefully get the call soon. Puckett and Carter are also two of the three deceased players on the card back, along with Jose Uribe. So now we're up to 16 Hall of Famers in the set and five deceased players.

11-Year-Old Kevin Says: I assume they used the Cubs color scheme for the name bar at the bottom because those were the colors of the card packs. Series 1 was blue, Series 2 was red.

On This Date in 1993: March 19. The unemployment rate in the United Kingdom falls for the first time since May 1990, but there are still 2.97 jobless in the UK.
