As part of a "non-sport" purchase, I received this pack of cards. At first, I thought it was a general Peanuts card set. The more I looked at the wrapper I thought this might be worth checking out as a baseball-related item. Randomly inserted in packs was a "Stan Musial Hologram Card." I opened the pack immediately.
Inside, there are 10 baseball-themed Peanuts cards. The front of each card sports either a gold or silver border and a comic frame from one of Schulz's strips. I thought that was a pretty cool thing to do to cards in and of itself. But, when I turned the card over:
I saw that ProSport had printed the entire strip on the back! Not only do you get the frame on the front, but the context of the frame within the whole strip as well! What a great idea!
Of course, I did not pull the Musial hologram, but reading through the 10 comic cards was a thrill anyway. Aside from Bazooka Joe, I hadn't seen cards with comics on them like this.
