1994 Select Series 1 box

Description

1994 Select is a 420-card set issued in two equal series of 210. The horizontal fronts feature a color player action photo and a duo-tone player shot. The backs are vertical and contain a photo, 1993 and career statistics and highlights. Unlike the previous year's set, 1994 Select was Hobby only and limited to 4950, 24-box cases per series.

Distribution

24 packs per box, 12 cards per pack. Hobby only. 24 boxes per case. 4950 cases per series produced.

In order to capitalize on sophisticated adult buyers looking to purchase scarce product ("scarce" by 1994 standards), each Hobby box of Select has a sticker seal informing the buyer the box number (x of 24) from what case (x of 4950).

This meant each base card had 81,463 copies. Select Skills and Crown Contenders insert cards had 11,880 copies. Rookie Surge insert had 5940 and the special salute/award winner cards had 3960 copies.

Collation data from one Series 1 box. Base Set Completion: 92% (183 of 210); Duplicates: 105; Crown Contenders Insert Completion: 10% (1 of 10)

Award Winners

Select honored Paul Molitor and Carlos Delgado as their "MVP" and "Rookie of the Year," respectively, with Dufex inserts in Series Two. The cards were seeded at the rate of approximately one in every fifteenth Hobby box.

Although Paul Molitor finished 2nd in the AL MVP voting for 1993, he would finish 19th in the 1994 AL MVP balloting. After getting off to a hot start, Delgado spent the bulk of the '94 season in the minors and did not receive a single Rookie of the Year vote.
