We are 1993

Welcome to The 1993!
 

If you've followed my flagship blog The Collector you've no doubt read at least one of my posts celebrating a sports card set released in 1993. It was a magical year for the hobby - and a magical year in a lot of other arenas. It was the year I became a teenager, which likely explains my affinity for the music and entertainment of said year.


The 1993 sets and sports seasons have a wealth of topics to discuss and explore. There are so many things I want to share and learn and remember.

And so on 9/3 of 2020 I decided to start a second blog, where I could explore sports cards, sets, moments, songs, TV shows, and anything else that entered the world in 1993. (Victoria Justice, how you doin'?)


 Upon further review, this Joey Tribiani gif is ineligible. Friends debuted in 1994 :/

 

You might be wondering why this blog is called The 1993. I chose this name for two reasons. It seemed like a lot of topics would start that way. For instance: the 1993 Upper Deck baseball set, the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals, the 1993 World Series (both won by Canadian teams!) and the 1993-94 SP basketball set - which is a topic I wanted to explore long before conceiving the idea for a 1993-specific blog.

Also, it works well for The 1975.


I'm looking forward to reminiscing about 1993 with all of you, and I hope you'll share some of your memories and favorites of that glorious year in sports, sports cards, and pop culture.


 

Thanks for reading!

  2. Nice going! I think the teal color is perfect for a blog about 1993.

  3. i really expanded my collecting horizons in 1993, purchasing a pack of flair and being amazed that a pack of cards could cost $3.99 and that i would pay it. glad the header worked out!

    1. The price of packs really ballooned in '93. I remember seeing Finest for the first time - my LCS was charging $10 a pack!

    1. Lol, I'd be amazed if I reach that many posts. I'm not even at 400 total yet!

  6. Looking forward to these posts! In 93, I dove into the hobby headfirst without any clue as to what I was doing or getting myself into.

  7. Added this to my blogroll and can't wait to follow along. Crazily enough, I considered doing something similar a while ago but for 1994. Maybe if I find more time I'll go for it and make a "sister blog" to your '93!
