    Roberto Alomar Collector's Thread

    I haven't managed to find many other Alomar collectors, but if my lost ebay auctions are any indicator, they are out there. Hopefully this thread will help get us together. So if you have righteous cards, are looking for rare or oddball stuff, or just got a good pickup, please post here. I'm sure this thread will get bigger than the Super Sweet 90's Insert thread in no time

    I have a few hundred duplicates to trade or sell or give away, and also have a checklist that I'd wager is the most complete one out there (would be glad to email a copy to anyone interested). I'm also looking for those hard-to-find cards for my collection. Right now some big ones on the wantlist from early-mid 90's are:

    1990 Donruss Aqueous
    1992 Barry Colla All-Star Autograph / 250
    1992 Star Promo
    1993 Donruss Triple Play Preview
    1993 Finest Promo Refractor
    1993 Pinnacle Cooperstown Card Promo
    1995 Score Rules Jumbo / 3000
    1996 Aficionado First Pitch Preview
    1996 Select Mirror Blue
    1996 Select Mirror Gold
    1996 Upper Deck Diamond Destiny Gold
    1997 Blue Jays Scorebook Sizzler w/Olerud & Molitor
    1997 Fleer Showcase Legacy (all of them) / 100
    1997 Fleer Ultra Platinum Medallion / 200
    1997 Pinnacle Totally Certified Platinum Gold / 30
    1997 Score Team Collection Platinum
    1997 Score Team Collection Premier Club
    1997 Topps Proshooters Checklist
    1997 Topps Stars '97 All Stars

    Thought I would post some oddball stuff today. I drool over whale cards like everyone else but really like this cheap fun stuff too.

    1995 Ray Ban promo card. I got this one back in 1995/96 and have never seen another one, and there is NO info about it online. Probably the most valuable worthless card in my collection.

    I picked up the 1992 Dream Team Gold card when it came out, but had no idea there was a header card until I ran across it while browsing @patrick182 Frank Thomas collection. An official issue from 24 years ago, and a card within a card to boot? And just a couple bucks delivered? That made my day.

    1991 Dad's Kid Tri-Cards. Interesting story behind these and the guy who made them. One day I wondered if they made them with the factory color pattern and it turns out yes.

    An all-time favorite - another card within a card. Gwynn is signing for some fans, one of whom has Robbie's 1988 Donruss rookie in his hand, in the far bottom left. I learned of this late one night through an online article and about 8 seconds later had a COMC order in.

    1993 Kraft pop-up card plus accessories. There's a guy selling these on ebay now - the card, plus a cutout from the box with the cards shown, plus instructions with a little black-and-white drawing which shows the outlines of individual cards. They didn't have to show the cards on the box, and on the instructions, but somebody went through the trouble to do so. I thought that was cool.

    One of my favorite cards from one of the best sets ever - 1993 Upper Deck. The other one is a knock off sold as Venezuelan, although I can't find any reference to it and have no idea what country the basement printing operation was located in! Whoever made it scanned the UD card, then cropped the photo just above the text, added graphics, and printed it on thick card stock. Another fun find for a few bucks.

    Left is a silver promo card from the Houston National in 1994. Right is the gold version which I vaguely remembered hearing about in 1994, but had long since forgotten until a guy showed up on ebay recently with a stack for sale. Minor pickup, but still cool because how often can you get a "new" 20+ year old card for a few bucks. Also the gold version has prism foil in a "diamond" orientation versus the "square" orientation for the silver.

    Cool. The only graded cards I have for now are the Donruss "Anniversary Originals" rookies from 2001 Donruss. These are a whopping BGS 7 and 7.5. I get the gimmick of graded redemption cards but they couldn't find better than 7 and 7.5? You can't swing a cat without knocking over a stack of 88 Donruss Alomar rookies.

    Your online museum is excellent and the podcasts are fun too. Good stuff. Would love to get my collection online someday but who knows when that will be...

    Good stuff. Hope you are able to land some of the key cards. And I'll echo the others, oddball items are great.

    Thanks. Hoping to keep filling in little holes here and there in 2017, but also fill a few bigger ones.

    Speaking of which, the other day I found a guy on tradingcarddb.com that had a moderately-sweet 90's insert I need on his for sale/trade list, so I send him a message. He didn't reply, but a few hours later it appears on ebay for a high (imho) starting bid, and a much higher BIN price. Thanks a lot. Starting to wonder if I should be a little more cagey with my wantlist!

    Just got the 2003 Topps Chrome X-fractor /50 in the mail today. I realized this 2003 Topps run has 12 cards...and I have 11 of them. Nothing too expensive since the shortest print run was 50. But that almost makes it more fun. From top left to bottom right:

    Base Issue
    Gold /2003
    Black /53 (missing this one...if you have one, let me know)
    Home Team Advantage
    Opening Day
    Opening Day Sticker
    Kanebo (Japan)
    Chrome Base Issue
    Chrome Refractor /699
    Chrome Gold Refractor /499
    Chrome Black Refractor /199
    Chrome X-Fractor /50

    Got a great pickup today and have to share it on the board here, since nobody else in my life really gives a crap about my card habit

    A guy on ebay had a lot of 25 1993 Donruss Triple Play cards, all Robbie Alomar, for a couple bucks. So I bit, hoping one of those sneaky preview cards might be mixed in there. I have bought a few cheap lots before hoping I'd get some subtle variation or error, but they never panned out....until now:

    Top one is the normal card, bottom one is the preview card with the fuzzy "Triple Play" text on the background. Fronts are almost indistinguishable, except the silver ink the player's last name on top is slightly brighter and shinier on the normal card.

    I've been looking for that damn preview card for a while, and never thought I'd stumble on it for a few bucks. So in conclusion...hells yeah!
