Time for a Back to Base post, where I run through Tony Gwynn's base cards from a given manufacturer. I've covered the early years of Upper Deck before, so this post will pick up in 1994, with a base and a parallel. It's Upper Deck. Of course there would be parallels!
Card Number 261: Upper Deck, 1994; #219
Card Number 262: Upper Deck Electric Diamond, 1994; #219
Electric Diamond is a bit like the silver signatures in the Collector's Choice range - it's the same card with shiny (diamente?) writing on it.
The back is exactly the same (except that one of my cards has a few nicks out of the top edge.
Card Number 263: Upper Deck, 1995 #135
It has the shortened stats box like the previous year, but at least it's the same way up as the picture.
Card Number 264: Upper Deck, 1996; #450
This looks like it could have been a Studio card.
Upper Deck decided to bring back a border at the bottom of the card. Brown foil scans quite well, compared to every other colour.
On the back we have another photo of Tony looking like he's about to club a catcher like a trapper clubs a baby seal. These photos always make me smile.
So, in conclusion, I don't know for certain who that guy is and I hope Tony wasn't bashing his brains out.
Of note beside the mystery catcher, the stats box has eschewed the usual collection of recent seasons and includes Tony's stats from All Star Games and the World Series. He would improve on his World Series stats with his performances in 1998.
Card Number 265: Upper Deck, 1998 #500
