    1995 Extra Bases Sample Promo Cards - anyone know about them

    Found this doing some searching for rare promos. Anyone know about them as far as their rarity or price? The seller wants $125 for Ripken . . . seemed high, but I've never seen them.

    Very rare I have heard as little as 60 of each were released to the public.
    Steve Taft has a few at Beckett Marketplace. Great set if you like the oddball over sized stuff.
    I have Griffey and the Frank Thomas is on the top ten hardest Frank Thomsa cards to get at

    Cool! Thanks for the info. Steven Taft had the online store where I saw them for sale actually. Ripken among others. I thought they might be pretty tough. Surprised I hadn't seen any mention about them on the forum yet.

    I find it odd also? Maybe because they are not real flashy or a pack insert?
    Not much is really talked about here pre 97. The whole numbering thing has most collectors attention.
    Talk about rare how about the 1993 Triple Play Preview? Good luck finding one of those. I would kill for a Griffey.

    Yeah! Glad Clark doesn't have one for me to have worry about. I used to think they were pretty common, but I mistook them for the 92 promos which are pretty easy to find. I'm not sure I've ever seen a 1993 Preview.

    Well, Ripken isn't listed on my checklist, so hopefully I'm lucky.
    Never seen one, never knew the rarity.
    Good luck guys.

    I'm pretty sure Ripken has a 1993 Triple Play Preview (well, at least based on Beckett), but they've been wrong a lot before. As far as I can see, Clark doesn't though, so I'm lucky

    Also, Clark escaped this 1995 Extra Bases Promos I think which most of the big stars of the time have. Thanks for that link Jack Straw, he had a player checklist on there, and no Will!!

    Are you talking about the 1995 Extra Bases Test or the 1993 Triple Play Promo, because Ripken is in both

    I know he had the '93 TP PReview.

    I see it now.
    Listed under "1995 Fleer Extra Bases Game Test Samples 18"
    I stand corrected.....

    Have doubles of either??
    We still need to compare lists brother, help each other out.
    I just put in an order on COMC for 51 Ripkens I needed.

    Unfortunately I don't even have a copy of either for myself! I'm going to work on my checklist this weekend, gf is out of town, so that should give me time

    I know I have never seen a Bagwell extra bases test sample.Another one of those super hard to find early year cards of his.Some of this stuff is so hard I don't know if I ever will find it.Money may not even be the problem.

    As for the 1993 Triple Play Previews...has anyone seen or heard of a Bagwell?I am not sure it exists because I have never seen one.Beckett doesn't list it but...yeah.

    if my memory serves me right, those werent listed in the beckett a couple of years ago. then i saw them in the beckett marketplace from that steve taft guy and sure enough beckett added it to its checklist. someone should contact them about the 1994-95 superslam jumbos, preferably someone who sells on the marketplace....

    I have never seen the Grace little Hot Shot promo. Been on my list forever. I can't believe that if it exists I've never seen it, so must be really tough. That's my only card missing for Grace from 1988-1995.
