    I know the sets originally came with a full set of 4 press plates for a random player. The Garvey set was selling when I was having issues buying and I let it go for well under what it might have otherwise sold for.

    I am not sure about the first set being stamped, but it sounds like something that might have been done at the time. I was traveling and had issues with loading watched items and missed a bunch of Dodgers early on, but luckily happened on the site before the 2nd run ended. I got most I won for $2 or less, a few close to 10 and then I paid dearly (as usual) for Garvey. If they look fishy, we can always do a not as described and get a refund I suppose.

    I think sortsof.com skipped over 100 or so cards when I read through the completed listings.

    Is the sale price for the Canseco legit? Seems like 2 buyers went for it and got wild.

    I'm pissed, I missed out on all of them after our power went out on Sunday (just came back on a half-hour ago). The two Glauses went for next to nothing, well below what I would have paid.

    I wondered about the legitimacy of these as well. Had never heard of these before, and after 12 years you'd think someone would have known something, especially the big-time player collectors here. I was watching the Olerud and it when for just over $27.

    I ended up winning 3 of them..

    Edgar #201, $48
    Griffey #338, $67
    Clemens #350.. $15

    I didn't see the first Griffey #72 or it would have been more as well,
    I bid on the Olerud, but felt that it went a little more then I wanted to pay..

    What we'd need was the memory of someone who may have put together the set to redeem in hopes of being first. I was not buying packs, so never really followed new stuff. I suppose it should have been cataloged by someone though.

    If someone built the set, was the first to redeem and did in fact get a stamped set back and has kept it all these years or even if the set changed hands, but was never broken up, it is easy to see how nobody knew about it, but the thing I keep thinking about is why it seems to be a complete mystery to everyone all the same.

    I ended up with 8-10 singles. I would feel ripped off on the Garvey if they turned out to be BS, but the rest were minor pocket change.

    They are all fake.
    -Sincerly, someone who didn't get his guy.

    I actually don't know what to think about these. I think it is a cool story but does bother me there is absolutely nothing to be found on these - not even worth point. The seller mentioned the set was purchased in 2006 from ebay. While there are others to be found on worthpoint from 2006, this set doesn't seem to appear. One would think Donruss would have made a huge deal about this promotion ... getting a complete set of 1/1s ... that is gonna be at the top of all my marketing material in 2005!

    If someone was REALLY skeptical about this, they would get their hands on a pic of the top of the box from the multiple listings, and see if the wood grain matches anything in worthpoint. (All worthpoints show the top of the boxes, not the sides, and the pic from the listings do not show the top but rather the sides, lol.

    I could go either way on these, personally, but it would bother me not being able to find out anything about them, especially since it probably would have been a yuuuge deal.

    There are many holes in the Donruss saga and this set-break is no different. Is there a record of when this complete set sold on eBay for $5,000+ besides Worthpoint?

    I think they're legit. I just can't imagine someone stamping that many cards by hand. I'll have mine today and will compare the stamping to my other 1/1's from this set.

    Also I got the Mariano Rivera for $31.

    Got my Biggio today. The stamping is bad. Maybe it's just this one, but it's tilted for crying out loud, extra and missing foil in some spots. I won't send it back regardless, but if we were voting I would now say fake. I'd need strong proof otherwise.

    Yikes! Hopefully some other folks will post theirs up ... perhaps this was just an isolated mess up by Donruss.
