    Thank you all!! To answer a couple of questions asked:

    Right now, I have 910/994 cards that I have checklisted. That includes 14 1/1's. So, excluding all of the show stamped stuffed or random proofs/bankruptcy items, weird things - I'm at roughly 896/896 for completion.

    I grew up a Tigers fan (mom and grandma were both fans) as I live about an hour south of Detroit. I always listened to Ernie Harwell & Paul Carey on the radio, and Al and George whenever I could rabbit ears in Channel 50 or WDIV 4 out of Detroit to watch the games on TV. My first favorite player was Alan Trammell, as I always wanted to be a shortstop too. It was when I first got into collecting cards, that Travis Fryman first got called up to the Tigers in 1990. I thought he would be a fun player to collect. I actually met him and had him sign my Tigers team ball in the winter of 1990 at a local show here in Toledo. I have faithfully pursued his cards since that point!

    I still will be on the lookout for the random oddball items and any 1/1's, should they ever surface. But, those are just extra gravy, or extra sprinkles on the collection at this point. I am truly THRILLED to have completed something like this! (Especially since I just sold off my entire Champ Bailey collection!! But that's a whole 'nother topic).

    The serial on the Fryman looks good to me, surprisingly! Considering, how many fakes have been floating out there right now...well done!

    Agreed, looks legit to me as well. I own the Ben Petrick Golden Anniv. Ref. #4/5 and I pulled it out for comparison - the serial # looks identical.

    That's awesome. It's really remarkable considering you need low number cards to show up at all. How many cards did he have in the 03-05 years? How many cards /10 or less?

    So, quick checklist scan - 13 cards /10 or less, most of those are actually trade show cards and not pack issued, so really only 3. And they were the last cards I found of him too - the bowman refractor /5 and a triple crown HR parallel /3.
    Only 44 cards from 03-05 (he had retired in '02) - a few of those were print plates (which I did track down a couple).
