    Ahhh, trying to apply today's asinine rookie card parameters to cards from 30 years ago. Call them whatever you want, the market has the final say. For Smoltz and Biggio, the market says 1988.

    Thanks for being cool about it, Jackson.

    The funny part is that I've really only seen one half of the equation. All of the unopened I've gone through has been of the early error print runs or of...

    Outstanding. Thanks, I needed that!

    I've found my tribe. Thanks for welcoming me in. I can finally come out of the closet as an obsessed 1990 Donruss collector and feel safe. Now I just need to...
  5. This is accurate. I estimate I've spent about...

    This is accurate. I estimate I've spent about $2,000 on 1990 Donruss unopened product. I've purchased and ripped nine 20-box wax cases and I've lost count how many rack cases. This was my choice. I...

    Jackson, you're beyond reproach. The work you've done in this area is second to none. Your website is a unique resource for thousands of cards that otherwise would go unknown. I admire both the work...

    Fresh meat.

    The Ryan King of Kings has a color variation on the front. The banner and name box can be found in tan (most common) and copper (least common). So far, I've only found the copper with...

    I've spent an embarrassing amount of time and money opening cases, cataloging print runs, louping cards, all the things that I'm sure many of you are familiar with. When all of my bases are covered...

    No, regular card size. The two words to the top-left and top-right of his name are Authentic Signature and the factory sets of Collector's Edition mention an autograph included so these are legit,...

    I should probably add pictures. The cool thing about it is he signed it #8, which obviously wasn't a number he stuck with for long.

  11. 1996 Leaf Collector's Edition Autographs

    Looks like this forum doesn't get much action but I might as well post this, you never know.

    I recently picked up one of these sets as part of a collection and it came with a Leaf Gold Rookies...

    There are a handful of cards rarer than the Baines. The Baines isn't that tough, there are plenty on eBay right now.

    One thing that can be said about all of the '90 Donruss E&Vs is that finding...

    That's interesting. Now I've got to go over all my Baines cards with my loupe.

    I've been able to identify individual print runs and have created an Excel spreadsheet documenting exactly which...

    I can absolutely see that. They also became common knowledge immediately and caused great buzz for Donruss' release that year. They essentially did everything the No Period INC didn't do. The only...

    I think you're giving them WAY too much credit. For one, it's got to be the stupidest variation in all of baseball cards. Secondly, the only reason to deliberately create a variation is to cause buzz...
  16. In regard to the INC/INC. If I had to guess, I...

    In regard to the INC/INC.

    If I had to guess, I would bet that Donruss outsourced printing to multiple printers for those years. Perhaps one of the printers had INC (no period) and just never...

    I was just going to start a thread asking this. There doesn't seem to be any trace of non-card tomfoolery but perhaps all signs of what caused it were eradicated entirely. Too awesome of a thread to...

    A timely bump, plasticman. I just opened a box and decided to go through it card-by-card with a loupe. One can imagine how tedious that was.

    Of course, the set is like fertile soil still and I was...

    Would you mind posting a scan? Clark isn't on the sheet with the 3 previously confirmed Brown backs so I'd love to see one. Thank you very much for checking.

    1987 Fleer Brown Backs

    I grab '87 Fleer Glossy sets to rip every now and then. The last few that I've ripped have each had a card in them that seemed to have been printed on brown card stock. The fronts are exactly the...
  24. 1990 Donruss Bo Jackson Diamond Kings Redone i Explanation

    Some of you may recognize me as the sicko from the '90 Donruss thread that has devoted an unhealthy amount of time and energy on documenting and discovering errors and variations in the 1990 Donruss...

    With the help from my friend Todd, I've been hitting this set hard the past few weeks. After he discovered the Howard Johnson All-Star and Rick Reuschel All-Star variations, I decided to sit down...
