I used to love the Sporting News. I got it for years as a kid. The best part of the magazine was having the box score for every game from the past week handy. For years I literally read every box score in the magazine. They dropped the box scores before the 1992 season and the magazine lost all relevance it had for me.
By the time these cards came out, the Sporting News had lost all relevance for just about everyone. These days, the “brand” holds on as a pointless sports news web site. It was once the “Bible off Baseball”. It’s just another example of how the mighty have fallen.
