Front Design: As with all CMC minor league issues that year, the design surrounds a color photo.The team's name appears in the left border, with the team logo in the bottom left inside a home plate. The player's name and position appear in a bottom border. The borders with text are green, while the remaining borders are thinner and yellow. The team set card number is in the middle, above the player's name. The overall CMC card number for that year appears at the bottom.
Back Design: The top of the card contains a sponsor's logo, followed by the team name and affiliation. A cropped headshot, vital statistics, and minor league statistics complete the back. Team sets have green backs, while the larger release has multi-colored backs (see below, thank you Jason).
Parallels and Similars: None known. There is a ProCards team set issued that year for many minor league teams, but that design is different.
Distribution: Most cards were initially released as team sets at home minor league stadiums.
Thoughts: Overall, the cards aren't terribly exciting in design, but there are several qualities which make these aggreable. I appreciate the use of the full team name with location, and the team logo on the cards. Minor league logos are interesting in their own right. I also enjoy the inclusion of the name of the minor league, team affiliation, and complete stats on the back. Pro Debut includes the full team name and team logo, but doesn't include the minor league or affiliation or statistics.
