The cards are pretty patriotic to say the least. I do not have a problem with flags, but there is something about these cards which reminds me a little bit of the Rex Kwon Do guy from Napoleon Dynamite. If you've never seen the movie here's your clip:
Each card features an American flag and the small film frames behind the players feature the skyline of the city they play in. I thought the Arch was pretty unique, so I am going with Bud Smith. So, here's where this set takes a strange twist. Also featuring American flags:
The Expos are American? Hmmmm..
Of course the Blue Jays also have a cool American flag on their cards too which seems to not fit too well with the skyline of Toronto behind Shannon Stewart. Donruss bounced back strong with a nice 2003 set featuring the team stadiums in the background. This set has also one of the old Playoff sets which Panini has revived fairly well without a license.
