1993 Upper Deck Fun Pack Mascot Madness Subset


In 1993 (and again in 1994) Upper Deck released an odd brightly colored baseball set they called "Baseball Fun Pack" they look like someone was on spring break in the late 1980s. One of the insert sets they randomly placed in the packs are this set called "Mascot Madness". The set consists of five cards of those fun loving foam heads the mascots. The "players" of this set are: Phillie Phanatic - Phillies, Pirate Parrot - Pirates, Fredbird - Cardinals, BJ Birdy - Blue Jays (who I featured in a "Mascot Mondays" Post) and Youppi - Expos. The backs of these cards give a brief bio of the mascot and the front has a full color picture next to a holographic picture of the mascot in front of a "field of stars" I guess to give a far out spacy feel to the set. Like many 1980s - 1990s holographic cards the hologram isn't that much of a big deal now. Back then it was but now-days it is eh. So here is the full set enjoy.

I am always on the lookout for Mascot cards. I also accept Mascot Postcards and team issued promo cards/photos of mascots.

  1. I got a complete set of this when I busted a box a few years ago.
