The match-up: $1 of '94 Donruss Triple Play versus $1 of 2012 Panini Triple Play.
I'd give the '94 a slight edge based solely on the fact that the card count will be in its favor 24 to 7.
Here's the tale of the tape:
|1994 Triple Play||2012 Triple Play|
|Price per pack||$0.50||$1.00|
|Cards per pack||12||7|
|Hall of Famers||Yes, players in '94 are in HOF now!||1:12 packs|
|Stickers||No.||at least one in every pack|
Here are the highlights from the dollar's worth of '94 Triple Play.
Hall-of-Famers: Dave Winfield and Rickey Henderson.
How did the 2012 version of Triple Play fair?
Puzzle piece of Evan Longoria and base card of David Wirght.
The winner? 1994 Triple Play makes a strong case with a tough insert pull that included the Big Unit, and few cards of Hall-of-Fame players, but...
I have to go with the 2012 edition. A Cubs hot pack for a Cubs fan? Seriously? That never happens. Red Sox fans pull Yankees. Dodger fans pull Giants. I pull Cardinals and White Sox... until now!
