    That said, I think they are cool and would grab one on the cheap.
    Do you have link to it on Comc?

    Not at the moment but it was on the first page of them, not listed separately, just with the regular versions.

    Here are some others. While rare the '85 and '86 Tiffany sets are limited to 5,000 making PSA 10's relatively rare:
    1982 Fleer John Littlefield Rev. Neg.
    1989 Upper Deck Dale Murphy Rev. Neg. (in PSA 10)
    1986 Donruss Highlights White Letter Variations
    1987 Cubs Canon Greg Maddux
    1988 Cubs Canon Greg Maddux (seems rarer than the '87)
    1985 Topps Tiffany Clemens and McGwire (in PSA 10)


    I know these are 90's but '90 to '92 are really apart of that Junk Wax Era IMO...

    1990 Topps Frank Thomas NNOF 414B and the Blackless 1990 Topps
    1990 Topps George Bush USA1
    1992 Score Franchise Musial/Mantle/Yaz Auto /500
    1990 Topps Mylar Test

    None of these are particularly rare, in of themselves. A large amount of white letter 86 Highlights have surfaced over the last few years and show up for sale with some frequency. Same with the Littlefield error. Not considering condition sensitivity on the 1985 tiffanys, the cards themselves are not rare at all. Much of the stuff listed so far in this thread almost never shows up for sale or have only shown up in tiny quantities.

    It has been listed in the gilkeson guide for a very long time. The notation is that there are three versions of the card, allegedly as a sample/pre-production, but the entry doesn't go into detail. I've looked at a ton since 2004 and have yet to see anything.

    Is the Canseco for trade?

    Very cool topic. I ran across some of the cards you guys have mentioned in this post and wanted to share.







    But also wanted to share probably the rarest card in the entire decade that only a handful people even know about . No HOFer but it's still a cool card with a cool backstory.
