    Josh, that Chef Boyardee is awesome! I haven't seen that card before and I too love those type of cards. Thanks for sharing a picture of it. I've shown this to you already, but thought I'd post it here. It's along the same lines as that Chef Boyardee. It appears to be a black ink only 1990 Donruss Box bottom.

    I’ve been fascinated with the amount of different material variation combinations that Panini uses in their releases. Before the recent Panini releases, particularly Pantheon, I had only noticed and purchased three other examples. I'm sure there are other examples out there and would love to know if you've seen/have something different.

    The first three: 2001 UD Prospects & Premiers, 2003 Donruss Studio (could be debatable since it's just a different part of a batting glove) and 2006 Upper Deck Epic.

    I normally do a very good job about not picking up doubles of cards I already have. However, I'm definitely making an exception for these cards. After all, I'm counting a card that includes just a period as different from one that is missing a period... =)

    I picked these up recently. I really like this dual Puckett/Killebrew card:

    Here's the standard issue of the card, but this is an error since it's missing the Killebrew material.

    I was pleased to pick up the 2017 Topps Rediscover Buyback Silver 1993 Puckett card. Always liked that photo and card, and I think there have only been a handful of these on eBay this year. This was a quick BIN listing and find for me.

    It made me wonder, does anybody have a master list of 2017 Puckett buybacks that we know were produced? Like, is there a 1991 out there? A 1992 base? I only have about 15 of them, I know a couple of you have a lot more than that, and have maybe had a couple that got away as well.



    I really try hard to focus my spending on cards from Puckett's playing days that I don't have, and not so much on the new products he's included in. So when 2017 Donruss and 2017 Donruss Optic came out with no logos (of course) and another average photo of Puck, my general thought was, "Meh. I guess I'll pick up the really cheap ones, but that's about it."

    Thing of it is, within a few days of Optic's release, I saw a quick BIN listing for both the /50 Carolina Blue and the /99 Red, that was too good of a bargain to pass up. Then about three days later, I saw a quick BIN that was even better, the /5 Green for $45. So logically, I completely strayed from my spending goals.

    Found respectable deals on the White Sparkle rewards card, and the /10 Gold, and I now have everything but the /1 Gold Vinyl (which I did not offer on, and sold for about $210 best offer on eBay in early August I believe), and the /25 Black.

    Which begs the question, where are the other *23* /25 Blacks, because I believe only two have surfaced on eBay so far?? If anybody has one that you are looking to move, please let me know!

    I'm hoping someone here took home the 1991 Topps Bronze a few days back, hard to believe one of those hadn't surfaced prior, but I don't think I'd seen one either.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/2017-Topps-...p2047675.l2557

    Also, somebody out there landed a dirt cheap 1988 Topps Gold today as well. Last 8 minutes it looks like.

    @MatthewN - I wasn't the one who picked up the 1991 Topps Bronze or the Gold you referenced above. I needed the '91 base and hope others make their way to ebay.
    @rebelpawn - I liked that card and wish the non-auto version that exists would have actually been autographed. That set looked sharp!

    Here's a couple new error cards that I recently picked up. I'm almost certain these are my first error cards that crossed two different subsets from a single release.

    I bought a sheet of these errors and cut them out myself. I'm willing to sell the rest of the cards from the sheet and will create a new thread for them.

    Those are very cool. The real question is, is there another Puckett card that features a dog? (I assume that was Marge Schott's dog)
