1997-98

Although I wouldn't realize it until several years later, this is the last truly great year for cards, it all changed with the lockout and not for the better. There were no new mainstream sets this year, the sets produced in 1996-97 returned with new designs.

Metal was broken up into two different sets, both bearing the Metal Universe name, and with totally new numbering systems. Not something I was fond of.

I was sick during most of the 1996-97 season, and don't remember much of it. Some of my best memories of the hobby are from the 1997-98 season.
