They're not even listed in the almanac, only on their website, and I can't find any evidence that any more than 25-30 different ones exist. With a stated PR of 750, that makes 75,000 factory sets made, which seems really high.
    I'm still looking for Frank Thomas if anyone has one let me know. I have only saw one go to auction right after release. I'll pay above book for it.

    Been looking for a 1997 Durham Bulls ATG card of Justice for fifteen years. I'm convinced that this set does not exist, as are several Chipper Jones collectors who have assured me they've never seen his card from that set.

    I started getting into Buster Posey last season, and I have yet to see a 2012 Topps Museum Collection Archival Autograph "for sale" yet. I have seen images, so I guess that counts.

    Collecting Every Cleveland Indians Topps base set from 1952-present, see all the cards at "Wahoo Cardboard"
    My Autograph Collection at "Cleveland Sweet Spotting"
    Always looking for vintage Cleveland Browns autographs, 1949-1958

    Is that the "Bulls to Braves" set? According to the SCD, there are only these 10 cards in the set:

    Checklist
    Jeff Blauser
    Brett Butler
    Ron Gant
    Albert Hall
    Brad Komminsk
    Mark Lemke
    Paul Runge
    Milt Thompson
    Durham Athletic Park

    If someone could find that checklist card, it would be easy to confirm.

    I thought it might be, but beckett lists this set here: 1997 Durham Bulls ATG Team Issue | Beckett.com

    And I've never seen one card from the set, and neither have several other player collectors. Now, it's a team issued set, so who knows how limited it is, if it does exist...

    I'd say ask Dave Weber. If he hasn't seen it, heard of it, or owned it, it probably doesn't exist.

    Some of the cards I have never seen but should have (so not 1/1's) for players I try to get everything of:

    1992 Columbia Mets Insert Set Play II #5 Bobby Jones
    1994 Mets Schultz Chevrolet Spring Training #7 Bobby Jones/Olson/Shirley
    1997 Select #192 Bobby Jones (yes a base card, have no problem finding the Select Company parallel)
    1996 Pro Stamps #116 Tom Goodwin
    1991 Leaf Gold Rookies Numbered Variations #273 Todd Van Poppel
    1992 High 5 #44 Alex Cole
    1992 Score/Pinnacle Promo Panels #20 Cole/Gantner/Caminiti/Stottlemyre

    And in football there are several Trent Dilfer cards that supposedly aren't rare and I definitely should have seen around at some point since I have 95%+ of his non-1/1's, and I've seen OTHER cards from the sets, but I feel like either his cards weren't made or didn't make it into packs for some reason:

    1995 Pacific Blue #344
    1997 Pacific Philadelphia Silver #187
    1998 Skybox Thunder Rave/150 #118 (no problem finding the Super Rave, never seen a regular Rave)
    2002 Bowman's Best Gold/25 #60
    2005 Absolute Memorabilia Spectrum Gold/25 #39
    2005 Playoff Honors O's/150 #24
    2006 Playoff Prestige Xtra Points Gold #39
    2006 Playoff Prestige Xtra Points Green/50 #39

    Everything else is rare or oddball enough that it's plausible that I wouldn't have found one before, but those above are just weird, I should have seen one by now. That being said, more than once I have found a card that was "easy" but I had never seen in the many years since the set came out and had all but given up hope on.

    It isn't the only N43 autograph that I need (see signature), but it's the only one that I have never even seen
    A year after I posted the above, I've still not seen a Joba N43 Auto.
    Currently looking for the following:
    -90's Bagwell and Biggio rare inserts & parallels
    -Carlos Correa, George Springer
    -2015 Heritage HN Action RCs of Correa, Bryant, Lindor, Syndergaard, Gallo, Buxton, Russell, Rodon

    Sent him a message and here's his reply:

    I am not aware of such a 1997 set apart from the "Bulls to Braves" set. The Beckett checklist you referred me to clearly describes the "Bulls to Braves" set, except that the checklist is completely different than the one I have. I have a Bulls to Braves checklist card which is titled, Checklist Card #1, which implies there is more than one checklist and therefore more than 10 different cards in the set. I think the possibilities are:

    1) They intended to issue a second group of Bulls to Braves cards, but never did, or


    2) They did issue a second series including Justice. If so I have never seen any in all my years of watching minor league cards.

    Hope that helps!

    Sorry to reanimate a dead thread, but I'm excited to have tracked down the 1997 Durham Bulls to Braves David Justice card. It is one of my most wanted, and it just popped up randomly on one of my regular searches on comc.com. Thrilled to have added it to my inventory!
