    MLB Showdown Collectors/Collections?

    I do, if you haven't moved this yet. The Bergeron WotC (the W symbol on it) was the hardest of the 8 of them (there were only 8 different WotC cards published as promos in the Nov 2000 edition of TopDeck Magazine). They tend to fetch anywhere from $80-150, sometimes even close to 200.

    The skill cards won't fetch you much at all. If you sold those as a bulk lot, you might get 4 or 5 bucks for them. There weren't all that may super-expensive strategy cards until Clutch Performance came into being. The Peter Bergeron promo is rather pricey. That could get close to $100 or more...

    MLB Showdown Collectors/Collections?

    So, the first edition cards have a small stamp on the lower left portion of the cards that has a 1 in a silver circle, and says Edition around the outside of it. I'll drop a photo of one in here for you. A poster above said they have a Peter Bergeron with a W symbol on it. Yes, that's the rarest...

    Yes I do! I'm rather in touch with what's up with most things MLB Showdown-related. You've got quite the rare one there.

    OOF! What do I have to do to find this guy? If he's into MLB Showdown, he could be sitting on a gold mine. 4 of the DCI cards I'm missing appeared on eBay recently, and went for over $900 total. I just couldn't go up quite that high, despite the rarity of them, or I'd be divorced right now.

    MLB Showdown Collectors/Collections?

    There are not. The Pujols you made reference to (the left of the two in the photo) was from their Pennant Run release that year. That was "an expansion", if you will. The Showdown Stars card on the right IS a promo that was released that year. As I remember, it was the only year Pujols was a...

    MLB Showdown Collectors/Collections?

    Still hoping to find some folks that are willing to part with/sell some MLB Showdown Promos. I'm down to about 25 left to finish everything! Anyone here dabble in the game at all, or may have some hanging around in one of those mystery boxes in their closet? It's amazing to hear the stories of...

    That particular promo is from 2004. Yes, it certainly does exist. I have one. Here's the Frank Thomas occurrences from MLB Showdown: 2000 base set (foil, card #109) 2001 base set (foil, card #107) 2001 Diamond Stars Promo (these aren't numbered, and "moderately" hard to find) 2002 Pennant Run...

    Final counts (I think I counted these up correctly) on each year's promos (and ONLY promos): 2000 had: 22 Diamond Stars 13 Future Stars 14 Home Run Hitters 8 Pennant Run Promos (the WotC stamped cards)(I'm missing 4 of these) Total: 57 2001 had: 20 Ace Pitchers (I''m only missing 1) 6 All Star...

    The foils for each year weren't variations of the card per se. They were just batters/pitchers that were produced that had rather good stats on them to play. They obviously would cost more to put into your roster (the very basics of team construction: you construct 20 man rosters with a 5000...

    MLB Showdown Collectors/Collections?

    This isn't quite a comprehensive list, as there are a number of promo cards not listed. This, for the most part, seems to be the actual WotC releases, and not the give-aways/promos. They DO, however, have the 2000 numbers right for the most part (between Future Stars and Diamond Starts, I think...

    I'll take a peek for you. I'm relatively sure I have his 05 Cooperstown Collection foil, but to your point, he was with the Orioles in that photo (it was his '62 Season that they based that card off of). The stats on the 03 version (the one you pictured) are actually a bit better for the price...

    MLB Showdown Collectors/Collections?

    Here's the list. Some of them on there are like, "how do you not have that" type of common, but others are extremely tough to come across: 2000 Pennant Run Promos (WotC labels) Peter Bergeron Adam Kennedy Gabe Kapler Daryle Ward 2001 Ace Pitcher Pedro Martinez 2001 Diamond Stars Carlos...

    MLB Showdown Collectors/Collections?

    Howdy! The hunt continues to finish the MLB Showdown collection. I'm done with the "regular season" sets. It's now down to just the promos. Does anyone have any of "those magic shops" around them that stockpiles old inventory of things they just can't throw away? I'm trying to run down lead...
