  • Best looking base sets? (90s and later)

    So what's everyone's favourite base set designs from the mid 90s to later on? Just in terms of aesthetic looks. I love some of the newer thick high end cards like Panini Prime (gorgeous base with the gold in the back) but these are expensive of course and I prefer to get the cheaper ones. Also love the artifacts design lately.

    I asked this question elsewhere, these ones were popular (and they look good to me after browsing through COMC:
    00/01 Topps Gold Label
    01/02 Upper Deck
    93/94 Leaf
    94/95 Leaf Limited
    94/95 Parkhurst Vintage SE
    94/95 Score Select
    94/95 Ultra
    94/95 Donruss
    95/96 Pinnacle
    96/97 Donruss Canadian Ice
    96/97 metal universe
    96/97 SPX
    96/97 Upper Deck
    97/98 Leaf International Universal
    97/98 pinnacle certified

      Great idea! This could involve a ton of research, but since I don't have a lot of time... I'm going to go with just a few off the top of my head:

      68/69 Topps
      90/91 Pro Set
      94/95 Flair

      If I have some free time later on this afternoon... I'll go through my Owen Nolan binder to find some more of my favorite designs.
