    Not my card. I wonder if potential buyers get confused and think it's serial #60 /90 not 06/09.

    Yep!! In fact afterwards I was trying to read up on those a little more and I use your site as a reference sometimes in looking at cards from sets that include both McGwire and Puckett. I noticed that you had a contributed photo and I thought, "I bet I know somebody who's happy tonight..."

    I was a little surprised that the Griffey's lasted as long as they did. Perhaps they are not as rare as I thought, but obviously your note about looking for 20 years is evidence they are not easy to come by. Since I got back into the hobby two years ago I just know that this was my first opportunity to get a Puckett.

    I was curious myself. Considering this seller has 10 of each card. I guess he could have hoarded them. Who knows.

    If memory serves me correctly, for the fanfest in '96, they had a guy that built a house of cards using these special decks at the show. They did it again in '97. I don't think these were given away which means someone had to grab some from the event itself or backdoor them. I've heard rumors most were destroyed. I don't remember how many decks they printed for the event.

    For those interested I checked with the seller and the qty 10 of each card was the entire stock. There are no more once these are sold.

    Not sure how many he had total though cause he had at least 13 of Griffey and a few other players as he sold 10 Griffey's in this listing

    Regarding the Fan Fest playing cards, interesting buying results for McGwire & Ripken for example...http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d...p2047675.l2564

    Then there is Frank Thomas...http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d...p2047675.l2564

    Thoughts? Do YOU think the Ripken and McGwire buyers were greedy, looking to flip for big profits or are they habitual hoarders who can't help but buy them all or did they just get lucky by being early enough to grab them all? 9 different folks got a shot at Thomas, but I could see his selling as a group as well if the right buyer sees them first.

    I went back and grabbed a Maddux and a Piazza. Would have bought a Thomas too, but they were all gone.

    I bought a Thomas, Griffey, Maddux, Chipper, and Ripken for $5 each. As for the Thomas selling to multiple people, we are in communication with each other through facebook, so we can help each other out in times like this.
