    I've always loved some of the early 90's inserts, especially the "rookie focused" inserts from Donruss, Fleer, Leaf and Pinnacle (the classic being the 1992 Fleer Rookie Sensations set). Even more, I remember really loving those sets that had shiny black borders. And though I didn't realize it at the time, since condition and centering mattered not to me back then, those black bordered cards are damn hard to find in mint condition.

    for my PC, I knew I wanted to try and go back in town and track some of them down...here's a few I most enjoy, 4 of the 5 were actually submitted by me to BGS

    1992 Donruss Rookie Phenoms Mike Piazza



    1993 Fleer Major League Prospects Mike Piazza and Pedro Martinez



    1993 Pinnacle Pedro Martinez (okay, not an insert set, but part of the Rookie Prospect checklist)



    1993 Pinnacle Rookie Team Pinnacle Mike Piazza (loved these cards! who didn't love getting a dual sided card and the uniqueness of an artistic rendering of the player vs. a photo?)



    feel free to share yours!
    I collect Pedro Martinez, Mike Piazza, Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers prospects and Trevor Bauer (and anything nice that catches my eye)

    The edge chipping on this set was awful. I got this 10 years ago.

    That's a major bummer, I can see the space in the holder. I guess it depends on how much you have wrapped up in the card as to whether I'd keep it or not. Either way I'd inform the seller and see what they might do for you. If they are nice and cut you a break that's great but f they are a jerk about it that might mean they knew then I'd lay into em.

    Top of the card is trimmed. Bummer. I'm gonna keep it to finish up the team set, and hopefully find another one down the road. Sucks because this is the first time I've ever seen this card. You'd think a /500 Griffey card from 1997 would be fairly easy to locate.

    Oh Super Sweet 90's Inserts.... #3

    That sucks. Wonder if itís a printing issue? Not sure why someone would trim it that much.

    Same as gjb - why on earth would someone trim a 1997 Donruss card that much? I would guess maybe an epically bad corner ding seeing as that foil is super sensitive, or maybe a printing problem too. And at $40 you paid good money for it. Sorry for the bad news. I added this card to my tracker list - I sometimes buy out Galarraga collections, and might come across one buried in there.

    I was going thru some old boxes and found some Cramer's Choice Jumbo cards. I think there are around 20-25 total. Not sure what year, late 90s, probably 1998 or 1999.

    If anyone might be interested, please let me know. Condition isn't the best on most of them, maybe nrmt-mt. But there are a lot of bigger names like Frank Thomas Jeter, Griffey in there.

    I've never heard of this type before! Do you know if all die cuts were affected like this in the set?
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 - Questions about this? PM ME!

    I honestly don't know Tanner; I think it's a safe assumption that any card on the same sheet with Frank probably has the variation. I didn't realize it's pretty uncommon until just recently.
