    Nice stuff guys. I really like that card that is missing the autograph. Stuff like that never shows up anymore.

    Recent small additions...

    For $9.75 delivered on an eBay BIN this 2005 Tools of the Trade /100 seemed worth it. I always like a card with something game used that isn't only bat or jersey.



    This card was really annoying me because it was probably the least valuable Beckett checklisted card on my need list.

    Since I got back into collecting in summer 2015, I hadn't located a cheap, ungraded 1996 Stadium Club Members Only on eBay or COMC, and it was just really, really annoying. Finally found a cheapo on Beckett.

    This photo still begs the question, "why is he throwing a knuckleball?" I think it's the only Puckett knuckleball photo on a card.



    I'm a fan of the R&N China porcelain cards for reasons I cannot explain. I now have five of Puckett. I think there are five more I need, but all of the many versions of the 1985 Topps confuse me.

    I had this as a 1994, but I think COMC would list it as "1992-93." Anyway, Heirloom series, and it's a jumbo at 4x6 inches.

    I often wonder why R&N China changed the colors of the backs on so many of these from what the original card colors were.



    I'm looking for the following R&N China Puckett's if I can find them reasonably priced...
    1993 R&N China Topps Porcelain Card (1993 Topps)
    1993 R&N China Topps Porcelain Card (1993 Topps All-Star)
    1994 R&N China Topps Porcelain (1994 Topps)
    1995 R&N China Topps Porcelain (1995 Topps) (/5,000)
    1996 R&N China Topps Porcelain Keeper Series (1985 Topps /500)

    Matthew, I love that Tools of The Trade card, that's probably my favorite set ever made. I just loved the assortment of game used material that was used in that release. I'm a fan of those porcelain cards as well, but only have two in my personal collection. I need to be a little more aggressive with my searches for them though.

    I remember seeing 1996 Leaf Signature Extended Autographs listed in Beckett when they came out back in the day. I was devastated when I saw Puckett was in the set because at that time, I didn't think I'd ever be able to find one. Fortunately, eBay came along and allowed me to find them. Little did I know at the time that it would be the Select Certified Mirror Gold that would go unfound... Anyway, here's the Leaf Signatures in my collection:

    I like those R&N Porcelain cards too. For the stated print runs, they sure don't come up for sale that often. I think I only have a 1985 Topps currently.

    Those 96 Leafs are fantastic. Love the simple design. Beautiful cards! Did they issue Black Ink Century Marks autos as well?

    Thank you! I don't believe there was a black century marks Auto or at least I haven't seen one mentioned on any want lists or heard of anyone having one. He probably started with the black sharpie and may of had to switch towards the end of the run. I'm not sure though.

    Good stuff in here. I love the Clark RN stuff I can find. The 1996 Leaf Sigs are a Classic set IMO and are hard to top.

    I have the century marks black ink on my list but I don't think it exists. I've seen tons of the century marks over the years and every one of them has been blue.

    Those Leaf certified autos are absolutely amazing and beautiful. My only Puckett auto was an 2005 ud hof jersey/auto. Unfortunately it was taken with all my other cards.. anyways, is this card a known error/misprint card in the Puckett community. I just pulled it from my old 1991 stadium club dome set. It says on the gold foil on the bottom "1991 N.L. ALL-STAR.

    Thank you psj! That is a catalogued error, the card is actually from the 1992 Stadium Club Murphy Dome set. It's supposed to read "1991 World Series." There's a corrected version in addition to the error.

    Take care,
    Jeremy

    And if you want to friend me on Facebook, please let me know your online handle, since I may not know your real name!

    I went to all three games that weekend! I remember the Twins advertising that SGA as the largest authentic autograph promotion ever. Definitely a super gesture for younger fans. I don't think many superstars would even consider doing such a promotion these days.
