If there was a great thing about sports cards in the late ’80s and the early ’90s, it was that the cards didn’t yet cost $5 per pack of 10. But another wondrous thing were the super earnest and forced attempts at being wholesome and a positive influence on the kids who were collecting them. This was a time when it wasn’t only the most callow Americans who might have considered athletes to be actual role models. Also, a Warren Moon football card telling you not to use crack is amazing whatever the context. Of course, once we were reminded of these the other day, we felt compelled to make a few updated versions for today’s NFL.
