    Is that Griffey really a thing?

    I believe the Griffey is a printing error more so than a color variation. The blue ink was just washed out with amine or water during the printing process giving the color difference. during the next pass on the press, the original color was probably restored.

    You're thinking of the Blue Chips. If not for a terrible player selection, those would be far better known and cared about. Might be the rarest Franklin Stubbs card, but it's still a Franklin Stubbs card.
    I'm DelBacon on Sportlots, tons of great cards!

    That's the one, thanks. There are 89 and 90 versions I believe and/or Donruss and Leaf versions.

    Yeah, I meant to actually list those in my first post. Although not truly hard to find w the open market place you can prob add the 89 UD Sample Variations and RN Murphy to a semi hard to find list. What about some boxed set variations like / Boardwalk Baseball.
