Card #89: 1993 Select #26

YEAR: 1993
BRAND: Score
SET: Select
TEAM: Cleveland Indians

I love this card.  Alomar has a number of cards with great photography and a trend of extreme closeups of his fact wearing his catchers' mask seemed ready to emerge, beginning with this card.  I am not sure what provoked them to use this shot, but it seemed to work pretty well.  Select was a new set in 1993 and its big draw was on an individual stat to highlight with each player.  With Alomar, as with many catchers, it looked at his caught-stealing percentage, which was 44.9%, second in the AL.
