    Some new pickups this month to post. First is a rare I had all along but didn't know it.

    I ran across a couple cards called "1993 Leaf Promos" on COMC, of Mattingly and Gonzalez. The sold listings also showed one for Alomar. I had never heard of these, but one of the sellers is @jacksoncoupage so I figured it was legit. But it took me a while to spot the difference from the base card. It's the alignment of the foil text on the front. The promo version ends much closer to the "the leaf set" ribbon. Scan below has base card on the left, promo on the right.

    After a brief search I found one, and only one, of these hiding in my duplicates box. It doesn't get any better than a rare 1990's promo pickup for $0.00

    Next one is one I never thought I'd see - a 1992 autographed card from from Barry Colla. There were 200 of these, and according to the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards they were giveaways that you could win at the game itself. This one, and the 1992 Canadian McDonald's redemption card (#/1000) were the first two autograph cards for Robbie. The next one didn't come along until 1996 Leaf Signature.

    Yeah I only bought it because it was a crazy good deal. I got him with the Mirror Red, Mirror Blue, Marlin Monroe close worn card, Albert Pujols Bowman rookie, and something else I am forgetting for $10.00 each from a guy on beckett who was selling a bunch of cards. I got $50 from the Monroe card, $27.00 from the Pujols had the Mirror Red graded got a BGS 9 sold that for $80.00 and the Mirror Blue got a BGS 9.5 grade had it listed on ebay for $500.00 for a long time ended up selling to a guy who offered me $200.00 and he ended up selling it for $400.00 a few weeks later. I kind of wish I held onto it because I sold it way to low but I ended up getting a Jeter card I needed and why I let it go for $200.00 and I only had $17.00 invested in it with the grade and card together.

    One more recent pickup...1998 UD Piece of the Action. This was Alomar's first game-used card, and I think it's still one of the best (if not the best). Upper Deck absolutely crushed this one. Oddly enough the second one didn't come along for 2 more years, with 2000 Fleer Gamers Lumber, and that was the only one for 2000. Of course after in 2001 that the floodgates opened - and haven't closed. So it's odd that there were only 2 cards through 2000. Wonder why it took so long to catch on.

    Back to the topic of "fun and cheap" today. I found a sell sheet from Topps for the 1993 set, which had the Alomar card on it. I picked it up for fun, and when it arrived I noticed that the card front on the sell sheet was very different from both the base card and promo card. The promo and base cards have identical fronts but several style differences on the back, which I guess is not surprising, but it's curious that the sell sheet shows a card with such a different front.

    On the sell sheet the Topps logo is black and on the left side. Also the colors on the bottom are all different than the base card. Here the text is gold, so maybe they wanted to show what the Topps Gold card would look like? But of course the actual gold cards were all gold foil on front.

    Interesting that the Alomar is so different, while Griffey looks pretty much like the base card except for the cropping, and the Bonilla is identical to the base card. Don't know about you guys but I think this stuff is interesting.
