Upper Deck - 1994 World Cup ~ Swiss Edition (McDonalds) (02)


1994 World Cup ~ Swiss Edition
Upper Deck / McDonalds
56 cards

Andreas Henning has very kindly e-mailed most of the checklist for this collection, and two versions of two of the cards...
You recently asked for support to provide more info for the McDonalds Upper Deck set of World Cup 1994 cards.
I’m glad I can provide checklist and pictures.
I don’t have #12 nor the last 4 cards of the set, but I am pretty much sure #53 - #56 are German players' Hologram cards.
All cards are the same as in the regular 1994 (Contender) set – the only difference is with the hologram logo. It is showing the McDonalds logo instead of the Upper Deck logo.
Cards were only available in Switzerland at McDonalds with 3 cards per pack. Bi-lingual text in French and German. An album should exist, but I’ve never came across one.
Andreas has been collecting cards and stickers for many years and has a very interesting website - Trading Cards & Stickers.
UPDATE (05-12-2017 17:25):  Thanks to Harry for providing the names of the players featured on the hologram cards and some of the photos. This checklist is finally complete!

  1. Hi! If still needed I can try to check who the missing players are. I should have a bunch of those and the album somewhere.

    1. Hi,

      That would be great, thank you. It's just about the hardest Upper Deck World Cup 94 collection to try and compile a checklist for.



    2. Good, I'll check them by tomorrow and hopefully find at least some of the missing ones from the checklist.


    3. Hi Alan! I'm happy to inform you that this mystery has been solved! I found the collector's album and I had also the missing card number 12 (Faustino Asprilla, Columbia) and three of the holograms. In addition the albums inside cover has a full list of all the cards and players. I'll send you an email with some pictures I took and the whole list of all the players. BR, Harry

    4. Hi Harry,

      That's great, thank you. I've added Asprilla to the checklist and I'll look forward to receiving your e-mail. Just in case, my e-mail addresss is:

      Thanks again,
