i used to watch conan every once in a while, and i recall the first time i saw his 'in the year 2000' bit. it was in late 1999 and he predicted that in the year 2000, zombies would feast on human flesh and when they got hungry later, they would go to olive garden. i found that to be quite funny.
this post has nothing to do with conan or his skits, however. instead, i give to you a few cards that were produced in the final year of the 20th century.
2000 fleer focus jeff shaw
2000 topps jeff shaw
speaking of gold, 2000 upper deck gold reserve kevin brown
2000 upper deck sp authentic
2000 pacific angel pena
2000 pacific paramount devon white
looks like devo played his best at dodger stadium. he finished his career with 34 leadoff home runs, including one hit for the dodgers in the year 2000.
2000 skybox dominion adrian beltre
i really liked that skybox dominion set when it came out, but my favorite set of the year 2000 was the fleer greats of the game release. fleer had put out the first gotg set in 1999 as a sports illustrated fueled set, complete with an autographed card in every pack. that was cool, but i really liked the look and feel of the 2000 set over the gloss of the 1999 set.
here are a few of the dodgers from the set - tommy john
