1991 Stadium Club Skydome Padres

The Skydome set was produced in conjunction with the All-Star Game, which was played at the Skydome in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Padres team set contains two All Stars and three draft picks.

Greg Anthony was drafted as compensation for the Padres having lost Jack Clark in 1991.  He played for three seasons, getting no higher than A ball.  
Jon Barnes was also drafted by the Padres in the second round of the 1991 draft.  He got up to AA and played through 1995 in organized baseball and in 1997 he played for the Thunder Bay Whiskey Jacks in an independent league.
Sean Mulligan was drafted in the fourth round in 1991.  He made his major league debut in 1996 for the Padres.  He played a total of 2 major league games.  In 1997 he played in the Cleveland System, in 98 he played in Mexico, then for a couple of years in the Montreal and Baltimore systems.

Also in the set were All Star team cards of Tony Gwynn and Benito Santiago.

I recently was able to purchase this set of cards. It is a nice looking set of cards.

I guess it's because I wasn't paying much attention to him in my younger years (aside from his '91 Topps), but it seems like Benny sure has a lot of neat looking cards.
