Cool New Griffey - 1995 Studio Gold Credit Card

My fiance recently gave me a surprise gift of cards - the entire 50-card set of 1995 Studio Gold Credit Cards!  I had never even heard of these before, but they are very cool.

As you can see, the card is designed to look just like a real credit card, complete with plastic card stock, embossed lettering, a hologram of the team logo, and a "signature" on the back.  The American and National League logos in the background are a nice touch.

Here are a couple more examples:

Apparently the first 25 cards of the set have Platinum versions as well - I'll most definitely be picking up the Griffey!  If you collect any of the players on the checklist below, I would highly recommend picking up their card.  It will make a unique addition to your player collection!
