1996 SPx Baseball Cards

Derek Jeter 1996 SPx #43 Gold
Derek Jeter 1996 SPx #43 Gold

1996 SPx is 60-card set printed on 32pt card stock and emphasizes hologram technology. 5 additional cards were made: a Ken Griffey Jr. Promo and two Commemorative cards, and two Mike Piazza Tribute cards. The set was released with an SRP of $3.49 per 1-card pack, and includes a Gold parallel set and a 10-card Bound for Glory insert set.

1996 SPx is an excellent set. The die-cut design is minimally condition-sensitive and the thick card stock really makes these cards stand out. I opened a pack of 1996 SPx in 1996 and pulled the Gold Mo Vaughn. I can remember being impressed by the design and it remains one of my favorite sets even to this day. I still have that Mo Vaughn card and it acts as a reminder of this one memory.
