Selebrating Santo 1996 Cubs Convention Autograph

Only 20 days now until my boyhood hero Ron Santo is inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame.

This recent addition to my Santo collection is also now one of my all-time favorites.  It's from a set issued at the 1996 Cubs convention.  I love the photo but I'm having trouble figuring out the year it was taken.  Can anyone help?  #27 is on the mound presumably throwing batting practice.  The 4 x 5-3/4 inch card features a great example of the Santo signature that's almost 3-1/2 inches long. Icing on the cake is that I won this for about $12 shipped.
