1988 SCORE

The rise in the popularity of baseball cards that would lead up to the Junk Wax Era began as early as the late 1970s, and the introduction of two new manufacturers helped spur further growth in the early 1980s. But the interest in baseball cards would reach a fever pitch by 1988, which would mark the first year since 1981 that a new manufacturer would enter the fold.

Some collectors believe that 1988 was the height of production numbers per set, while others believe it would increase into the early 1990s. While all of that can be argued without much concrete support from the companies, the introduction of Score to the trading card market certainly indicated that the demand had reached a peak not previously realized up to then.
