1994 Teleca Korean Cards Part 1 - Tigers, Eagles and Giants

I want to continue to post about the Teleca cards that Robert Shadlow scanned for me a couple months back.  I covered the 1993 cards a little while back so I thought I'd start on the 1994 ones here.

Like the 1993 cards, the 1994 Teleca cards are phone card size and shaped and appear to have been sold one card at a time.  Each card was inserted into a sleeve that had the team's logo on it.  There appear to be two distinctive Teleca issues in 1994 - the LG Twins set and everybody else.  I'll post about the Twins set later.  I'll start talking about the "everybody else" cards here.

The numbering of the 1994 Teleca cards starts at 13 (apparently starting off where the 1993 set left off but that's complete conjecture) and goes to at least 71, meaning there's at least 59 cards in the set.  The set featured cards for six of the eight teams in the league - the Haitai Tigers, the Hanwha Eagles, the Lotte Giants, the OB Bears, the Pacific Dolphins and the Samsung Lions.  With the LG Twins being covered in the other 1994 Teleca issue, it appears that there are no cards of the eight team in the league, the Ssangbangwool Raiders.

I've started loading Robert's scans into Flickr and setting up sets by team.  So far I've got the Tigers, Eagles and Giants done so I'll list those cards here and do the rest in another post.
