    Question 1996 Collector's Choice Crash the Game Gold? Where are they?

    Pretty simple... I have nearly every card of Albert Belle from 1985-1995 BUT once I get to 1996, I need weird things like these:

    1996 Collector's Choice Crash the Game Gold #CG11 (June 25)
    1996 Collector's Choice Crash the Game Gold #CG11B (August 2)

    Any idea how rare these are? Do they exist? What's the deal with them eluding me for this long

    Are they the redeemed versions or just the regular cards inserted in to packs?

    The golds were hard to pull if I remember right. I opened tons of those packs and got a couple silvers. If someone pulled a gold for a date he went yard, it was probably redeemed for the set. Some people also thought the cards were useless if it was a "loser".

    I believe they were inserts and they were inserted into packs, not redeemed but would punt to anyone who knows more.

    The golds were indeed inserted into packs. The last 2 boxes I've opened each had a gold in them, so either 1 per box or I was lucky. I think it's also the fact that they're cheap cards, no real value even if you pull a gold. Many aren't listed for sale because they're not $$ cards and sometimes people don't know there are silver and gold versions. They're out there somewhere, I think I still need 2 of the Buhners and all 3 Griffey golds.

    You Crash the Game Gold (Series 2) - 1:50 three players (Tim Salmon, Larry Walker, and Joe Carter) did not have any winning YCtG cards. Therefore, this set is complete without cards #CG8, CG16 and CG30.
    I Need 1 More Griffey Gold STILL

    I keep seeing Bagwell CTG's in Lots, but half the time the pics or scans arent good enough to determine if they are silver or gold.
