Since 2006, in addition to the Topps Flagship base sets, I have been collecting most of the insert sets as well. I little while back I decided to fill some gaps in my collection and pick up the Topps insert sets from 1993 to 2005. While I do have all the base sets in that range, this was a period where I didn't do a ton of collecting. Most of the sets have been picked up in factory form or bought complete without opening many or any packs. I have decided to share the different insert sets as I complete them to document my progress and share the sets in case they came at a lull in your collecting as well.
This set is a 15 card set from 1996 and is called Classic Confrontations. The fronts feature a nearly full body picture of the player, a muted close up of a portion of the same picture in the background and a team logo near the bottom, strategically placed to try and avoid the player picture. The insert set title is printed in all caps along the left side of the card and the player name is listed in gold foil at the players feet.
Not the most exciting insert set or design but an overall solid add to my set collection.
