Personally, I’m excited about the 1992 Throwback set.  1992 Bowman is one of my favorite sets.  The design is simple, classic and it was one of the hottest sets of the early 90s.  I know he’s not playing anymore, but it would have been nice to have a Mike Piazza card in this insert set since the Piazza rookie is the top card in the 1992 set.  I’m looking forward to seeing today’s stars in the 1992 design.

I agree. I've kind of shied away from Bowman ever since Major League Baseball changed the rookie card rules. Over the years, collectors have accepted those insert card which is good and now there's a little more in there for people who aren't prospectors. It should be a lot of fun.
