Collectors Edge was all of the above. They had the edge as I would call it.
In my latest additions from @card_a_holic I was able to add some cool looking inserts from Collectors Edge starting with todays.
These are 1995 Collectors Edge Instant Replay EdgeTech Die Cuts. There is almost a complete set from what he sent but I still have a few more to go.
I don't remember these at all, but I liked the design and thought "hey, why not and why not try to finish the set at this point?"
There were 12 in all to collect. I assume by their value these weren't particularly hard pulls back then.
Set is a little 49ers heavy, but they had a great team and a Super Bowl winning one the previous year so it makes sense.
Thanks for these Brian!
