A Cavalcade Of Griffey Cards XIV

Today’s card comes from the turn of the century. Those crazy 1990s gave us some wacky cards and with the internet becoming more accessible to the average collector card companies wanted to take advantage of the big technological advance. There were cards that were actually CDs that could be inserted in to your IBM compatible computer CD tray and Skybox went the route of creating an insert based on what the average website looked like on the Google machine.

The 1999 Skybox Thunder www.batterz insert was unique and I dig the card because of it. I always liked those inserts from the 90s so this is one of those cards that I just had to have. You have to love the wicked use of "z" on batterz, very hip before it was cool.
