Let's Talk About Sets Volume 16

Let's talk about sets baby
Let's talk about it with me
Let's talk about all the good things
And the bad things that may be
Let's talk about sets (1995)
Let's talk about sets (Skybox Impact)
Let's talk about sets (Uh huh)
Let's talk about sets....

1991 song by Salt-N-Pepa was about a much different topic than I am turning it into. You see, I am staying on topic with cards. Not,well, what they were talking about. This newest segment about the 90's will focus on my set chases (the ones I have already used for a Origins Post or don't plan on using) and new additions to them along with updates on how far I have gotten.

It's time for us to sit down and have that discussion between your parents and you that you tried to avoid. You know, that conversation you have with them about the Flairs and the Pinnacles. Kids, it's time to Talk About Sets.

Today's sets talk is from my trade with @card_a_holic who I said caught my attention from having set needs for me.

So let's check out the sauciness today.

We are counting down to Impact! Sounds like some dirty sets doesn't it?

Countdown To Impact was inserted into 1995 Skybox Impact and is a pretty simple design card or at least appears that way. The seconds on the cards are actually embossed which drew me right in. I only ever pulled one in my youth so I have a ways to go with this set especially since they fell 1:30 packs.

Jerry Rice was a great add towards it!

Junior Seau

I have three of ten now. Seven more to go before this sets is done.


  1. Went over to COMC to see what this insert set was all about after seeing Rice with 0:00:01 seconds compared to Seau's 4:56 seconds. It's a cool set that takes an interesting approach to comparing time and the game of football. Have fun building this set.

    1. I think so. And the numbers are embossed so it's a bonus!
