    2005 Diamond Kings Challenge 1/1

    There is a set break on ebay. These are not on my master list? Are they legit? There are no scans of the back showing the serial number.

    I saw the bagwell listed and kind of ignored it. This seemed like a scam to me. Interested to see what others think

    I haven't heard of this. My DK Challenge cards are embossed but there is no numbering. I dug around and found the summary on baseballcardpedia included a reference to randomly inserting 2 1/1's into the Challenge sets.

    "DK Challenge Factory Set
    The first 450 collectors to send into Donruss-Playoff a complete 450 base set (not including the 50 Black & White variations) would receive a special DK Challenge factory set. Each card is embossed with a special "DK Challenge" logo and packaged in a custom, serial-numbered, box. Each set would also come with a matched set of four printing plates and two random one-of-one inserts."

    I guess I could have looked at the ebay listing. If you click on "See Full Description" the seller has included pictures of the backs and the original box. The box contains full detail from DLP regarding the Challenge sets in general and a statement that this is the first set and that the cards are machine stamped "1/1".

    I saw those and wondered the same thing myself. I have the vaguest recollection of hearing that the very first set would be stamped 1/1 or something, but I might also be imagining it. I took a quick look yesterday for the announcement or documentation from the time, but didn't find anything, and no reference to a special 1/1 set. But yeah, need to see what makes them 1/1. I didn't recall seeing the full description thing in the original listing, but I guess it's right there.

    I missed it the first time I read the listing as well. Click on the "See full item description" to see the rest.

    Pay no attention to the description behind the button.

    Just kidding. Neat set. Hopefully I can snag one or two. Kind of disappointed there isn't an Ozzie.

    This has been troubling me for a full day now.

    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 wording and the font type are the same as well as the box that it came in..
    It is what it is.. you either take a chance and go for your PC guy, or you don't..

    I have the Original painting from this set for Edgar and I have the base parallel 1/1 and an auto parallel (maybe more).. I think it will be nice to get this Challenge 1/1 or another one if I see one. .

    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.

    OMG!!!!! HIYA!!!
    Let the MLB know you’d like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.

    Collect all 28!

    I think there are 26 Manny 1/1s in this set, and this might bump it to 28... Too bad too as the design of the set was pretty decent but the number and repetition of the parallels kind of killed it.

    I remember winning about 4 of the paintings.. 3 at minimum bid and the Edgar I only paid about $450..

    I sold the other 3 and made enough profit to make my Edgar free!!
