Cheap Wax Wednesday Box Breaks: 1994 Score Football


1994 Score Football features an interesting color scheme. Remember those paper cups with the purple and teal swirls? The entire 330-card base set featured teal and purple borders. Those cups are the first thing I think of any time I see one of these. Other than the base set there wasn’t a whole lot going on with this release. The highlight of the set, in my opinion, are the Gold Zone parallels. These cards feature full gold foil fronts and look a whole lot better than the purple combo. 

Other than the base cards and Gold Zone parallels? There’s just one insert set and a tough one at that. Dream Team holograms are the only other chase. They are found just once in every two boxes. One can hope, right?
