I'm posting this a day late, I suppose. No, this card doesn't have anything to do with my mother, but rather my other 'mother figure'- my grandmother. You see, my mother was just finishing college when I was born and soon went into the workforce. Thus, for the first two or so years of my life, my grandmother took care of me during the day. And for the rest of her life, I always felt a really close bond to my grandmother.
I wouldn't call this card my favorite oddball from the '90s; instead, I'd call it a favorite. That's because my grandmother, later in life, became a die-hard Mariners fan and her favorite player was 'Little' Joey Cora. I've often thought about starting a Joey Cora PC in her honor. Odds are I won't, but I do have a number of other Cora cards that remind me of her.
I'll also mention that when it comes to the cola wars, I'm a Pepsi guy. I don't drink that much of the soft drink, but when I do, I prefer Pepsi over Coke. And I certainly won't pass up any Pepsi set.
