Smoltz Collection: 1994 Upper Deck #87 (including Electric Diamond Parallel)

I'm not a huge fan of parallel cards, unless the parallel adds something substantial to the design. A chrome parallel for instance looks nice and you feel like you are getting something substantially different than the base card. The same for mini cards like in A&G. This is just dull silver foil instead of gold? Do the words 'Electric Diamond' really add anything?
Can you spot the difference on the backs?

That's a rhetorical question right - no difference on the backs? If I remember right, sometimes the gold on the back was silver for the ED's, but it wasn't always. Which makes zero sense. The funny thing, is at least this set had the shiny foil, the worst parallels (like 1995 UD Electric) just add a stamp.
