    Any of you other Puckett collectors looking for a 1991 O-pee-chee blank back?

    I picked up one recently, but found that I already had one I didn't mark off my list apparently.

    Very nice pickups, btw. I think I was the benefactor of your hesitation on the Leaf Silver. Grabbed it on COMC about a year ago. Happy to see you were able to get another one!
    I'd forgotten that about Puck and his dislike of golf. I'm going to have to go find that in his book. I'm probably due to re-read that. Yeah, I think it was February 2017 when DallasCardboys listed a '96 Studio Silver on COMC. I'd already spent a ton of money, hesitated, it was gone. Glad it went to someone here, though I still agonized about it for a year

    I'd always assumed that a 1995 Score Gold Rush Redeemed existed for Puck, but I don't think I'd seen one before. Anyone have one already? It'll be interesting to see what it sells for. Different guys, but Ripken, Gwynn, Bonds have all sold for less than $50 in eBay sold listings, while a Thomas went for $380 in recent months.

    I always wondered about that card too. I would be hesitant to buy simply because someone unscrupulous with a custom hole-punch could...ugh.

    I have one. Picked it up a number of years ago when NWsportscards did their big collection sale. If I remember right I paid $60 or $75 for it. At that point I had never seen the card so I hit the BIN immediately.

    The rub is that no one knows how many are out there other than the number is extremely low. If there are more than 2,000 of each punched team set (with many teams much lower) I'd be surprised.

    I paid $7 (iirc) for my Jeff Frye and recently bought a Jim Edmonds for less than $20. We all know how we are as player collectors and that Thomas is evidence of it. From a rational standpoint though if i collected Puckett I wouldn't blink at a $50-75 price tag on it at this point. There may be 1,500 copies of it out there and there may be 15. I don't have an Edmonds collection but I bought the one I have just because I've had a thought a time or two about starting one and the Redeemed cards just don't come up that often.

    I have a 1995 Score Gold Rush Redeemed in my collection as well. I picked it up many many years ago from a father/son Puckett collector as they were parting ways with their collection. I think those cards are pretty cool and I havenít personally seen many of them over the years.

    Awesome pickups were pictured in here recently, great job guys! Please keep sharing them!

    Iím still looking for 12 - 2004 Leaf Exhibits to finish the Puckett run (4 series 1 & 8 series 2). Please let me know if anyone has some available for sale or trade. I have some doubles that I can trade with. We can get creative, perhaps 2 or 3 you may need for 1 that I need?

    Hereís the ones Iím searching for:

    Series 1 - (4 needed)
    1926 Unblocked Legend (1926U)
    1927 (1927)
    1939-46 Best Wishes Right (1939-46BWR)
    1939-46 Very Truly Yours Left (1939-46VTYL)

    Series 2 - (8 needed) (12 total)
    1921 American League (1921AML)
    1939-46 Truly Yours Left (1939-46TYL)
    1939-46 Very Truly Yours Right (1939-46VTYR)
    1947-66 Made In USA Sig (1947-66MSIG)
    1947-66 Printed By Donruss Playoff Print (1947-66PDPSCR)
    1947-66 Printed In USA Sig (1947-66PDPSIG)
    1962-63 No Stat Name Left (1962-63NSNL)
    1962-63 No Stat Name Right (1962-63NSNR)

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Seems like a strong sale, WatchCount says this 1996 Donruss Checklist Press Proof sold for $125 on a best offer.

    That's a tough Puckett to land though, I think I paid around $75 for mine back in the day.

    Here's a new material variation trio that I rounded up...

    There's way too many variations to track down of the rest of the 16 players included on this card, so I'll just stick to the three different Puckett pieces.

    Nice stuff Jeremy. I hadn't seen the grey material one before.

    I have a lot of stuff I haven't posted yet but I'll start with this. I had this card on my watch list for a very long time and finally grabbed it with one of those sweet ebay offers that have been popping up.
