Are you ready for some football? Finally switching Cheap Wax Wednesday over to football breaks, which will run through the end of the NFL season. 

First up, 1994 Topps Stadium Club Series 2. 1994 Stadium Club was split into three releases, Series 1, Series 2 and High Series. Series 1 and 2 have equal 270-card checklists, while High Series has just 90 cards. In addition to the main set, Series 2 also features a full set parallel and two inserts. The parallel, 1st Day Issue, is a Stadium Club staple and signifies the first day’s print run. Dynasty/Destiny pairs a current player with a football legend. Lastly, Ring Leader, the best of the bunch in my opinion, feature an attractive foil finish. These should be found once per box.

As always with ’90s unopened products, there is the risk of bricking and surface damage.

Pack 1 highlights:

Jerry Rice, Alvin Harper, Drew Bledsoe & Boomer Esiason

Pack 2:

John Randle & Robert Brooks

Pack 3:

Derrick Thomas & Steve Young Frequent Scorer Point Card

Frequent Scorer Point Cards could be redeemed for a Topps Finest-style Frequent Scorer card. You could send for redemption if you collected Frequent Scorer Points cards of the same player for a combined value of 30 points. So in this case, I would need five 6-point Steve Young cards to redeem.

Pack 4:

Emmitt Smith, Junior Seau, Drew Bledsoe, Steve Young & Derrick Thomas

Pack 5:

Rod Woodson & Sterling Sharpe

Pack 6:

Cris Carter & Charlie Ward CT

These Chalk Talk subset cards had some fun artwork on the backs. This Ward card highlighted the fact that he played both basketball and football at FSU.

Pack 7:

Troy Aikman & Dan Marino Frequent Scorer Point Card

Pack 8:

Rick Mirer, Terry Kirby & Raghib “Rocket” Ismail

Pack 9:

Bruce Smith, Jackie Slater CT & Dan Fouts/Troy Aikman Dynasty/Destiny (1:24 packs)

And the Slater Chalk Talk back. They went literal with this one.

Pack 10:

Jeff George & Warren Moon

Pack 11:

Jeff George Frequent Scorer Point Card

Pack 12:

Junior Seau, Shannon Sharpe, Shannon CT & Daryl “Moose” Johnston

As you can see, these cards did stick together. Luckily they weren’t a complete loss, but some cards did have surface damage. 

The Shannon Chalk Talk back.

Pack 13:

Jerome Bettis & Marshall Faulk Frequent Scorer Point Card

Pack 14:

Jim Harbaugh, Bruce Smith, Trent Dilfer RC & David Meggett Frequent Scorer Point Card

Pack 15:

Steve Young CT

And the Young Chalk Talk back.

Steve earned his law degree from BYU in 1994. 

Pack 16:

Marcus Allen, Derrick Thomas, Emmitt Smith & John Carney 1st Day Issue (1:24 packs)

Pack 17:

William “Refrigerator” Perry

Pack 18:

Marshall Faulk RC & Herman Moore

Faulk was the second overall pick in the 1994 draft behind only Dan Wilkinson. 

Pack 19:

Mark Carrier

Pack 20:

Cortez Kennedy, Brian Blades, Brent Jones & our second Dan Marino Frequent Scorer Points Card

Brian Blades, I always loved that name. He wasn’t a bad player, either, chalking up four 1,000 receiving yard seasons. 

Pack 21:

Darren Woodson, Daryl Johnston, Isaac Bruce RC & Rod Woodson

Pack 22:

Aeneas Williams & Marshall Faulk Frequent Scorer Point Card

Pack 23:

Steve Young, Warren Moon, Troy Aikman & Aikman RZ

Pack 24:

Haywood Jeffires & Sterling Sharpe Ring Leaders (1:24 packs)

These Ring Leaders are awesome. Unfortunately, this one sustained some damage from the bricking.

Lastly, the Steve Young card back. Topps went with their skill rating system over stat lines. I don’t love it. 

A Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Hope you get to enjoy some time with family and friends — and, of course, football.
