Sets Of My Childhood THE SERIES! Part 21:1997 Spx Holofame

Sets Of My Childhood THE SERIES is a spinoff from just a want list. I decided not only would I make a want list of each of the sets I am chasing in a tab, but I thought a little breakdown and feature may help get me more set help. I am sure many of the sets I am seeking are nickel and dime type of cards so I am hoping my trader friends can be on the lookout for any I don't have.

This set may be one of the most obvious ones from the series as everyone knows my chase of late 90's Spx with its glam of hologram technology. I have put together many of the base sets spread across a couple of sports, but I haven't mentioned how I am also chasing the insert and parallel sets too. One of those sets are the Holofames.
Falling at 1:75, this set won't be an easy task to chase. Most cards run $15+.

I really like the design of these. They took the X design from the base and gold foiled it. Added in the expected face hologram and a fx foil on the side with player. I tried to capture the magic the best I could with my camera but these things never look the same without seeing them closer.

I did find a full 20 card set on eBay, but they want $125. I think I can possibly build the set cheaper than that. At least I hope. I don't have the funds to buy that right now and the point of this is to build the sets. Well, most of them. Some I may buy outright if I only have a card or two and if they are affordable.

My current haves are,
How many of you remember or collected these


  1. I was out of the football collecting game so I don't remember these, but they look sharp. Good luck tracking down the others.

  2. Great set. I've been trying to add the Favre to my collection for years.
