    Something hinky about it. But to be fair, I can't fully recall the details of the Challenge Exchange program.

    It certainly could be legit.

    But...

    Here, I picked this up this afternoon (Mike Sweeney version) because of this very question:



    Notice the MLB Hologram?

    Additionally, and I mentioned this to Bull last night, the font doesn't seem correct for DP during that period.

    I dunno. <shrug>
    The hologram was not placed on the on the letter on the inside of the box like shown in the picture. It was actually placed on the outside of the box to seal it, you can see where it was removed from the front of the box in the ebay auction. I have set 120 of 450.

    Fairly easy to do this - Tanner can easily testify. Would take me about 10 minutes - mostly with the logo - to print one out. Glue is cheap.

    Stamp Kits can be had for about thirty bucks.

    Just sayin'.

    But, as you say, one has to take your chance. We're all adults here.



    Me too. But with Big Frank. <nod>

    Well, well. Look who washed in with the tide!

    The seller has 447 of these cards listed with "Challange" in the title and not one individualized picture of a back... oh, boy.

    The seller could be a bit more ambitious and take pictures of the backs, but the photo does show the 1/1 stamp on 9 cards.

    To me the numbers just do not add up. On the set it states 2 1/1's in each box. That's 900 1/1's out of 450 sets?????
    Also how does one person get almost a complete set of the 1/1's. I do not think John Wick could complete such an impossible task!

    If the bids stay at $0.99 for a lot of them I'm willing to risk it for some.

    There's nothing noteworthy about the front of these cards as the backs should include both the DK Challenge logo (I think?) and the 1/1. The 9 card-backs the seller arranged in 1 picture are too small to see much detail other than what appear to be gold "1/1" stamps.

    I just won the Biggio for $8.50, seems worth the risk. Lots of potential deals to be had...or we are all just getting screwed out of a few bucks.

    Yes, sir!

    I won the first Dunn for $12.50 and the 2nd at $26.50.

    These all would have sold for so, so much more if the seller had included pictures of the backs. A lot of money left on the bone with this sale. Terrible salesmanship.

    I went ahead and picked up a couple dozen at $2/ea. Some decent semi-stars in the bunch but nobody that big. I think some detractors for this set are:
    1) This 1/1 was unadvertised
    2) There are a million (ok, merely just "a bunch") of other 1/1's from the same set
    3) By 2005 there are just so many 1/1's out there, it's tough to want to go too hard for something like this, embossed via buyback and no distinction such as foil/game used/auto

    P.S. - Jesus Tanner!? $640 for Canseco!!??

    The Rickey Henderson went for $89.89. Unfortunately I was not the high bidder.
