1996 Upper Deck V.J. Lovero Collection

This was another insert set that I've had my eye on for a long time. After picking up about half from a dime box at the same card show that I got the Pitcher Perfect cards from I decided to finish off the set using comc.

V.J. Lovero was a phenomenal photographer who worked for Sports Illustrated, among others. His photographs graces the cover of SI 39 times. Lovero passed away in 2004 from cancer at the age of 44.

This 1996 Upper Deck insert set features some of Lovero's greatest work.


  1. What a great collection of photographs. My favorites are the Piazza and Tony Gwynn cards.

  2. Yeah, some great shots there! Love Randy Johnson rocking out on the drums. Don't think I've ever seen that Caminiti card before.. need it!

  3. This is probably my favorite insert set of the '90s.
