    Quest Complete 13 Years later - 2000 Greats of the Game autograph set

    Here is the last card I needed for my set. I need to go through my bucket account to ensure I have all of them scanned. I think there are a couple where I used crummy pictures from the auction so I need to update those old pictures. Without further delay... last card...

    Totally iconic set.

    And you've done it right.

    Amazing.

    Nice! That's probably my favorite autograph set ever produced.

    Awesome! I finished mine about 2-3 months ago as well! I assume based on the card you're showing that you have the Moments cards as well?

    Congrats!

    Awesome accomplishment.
    One of my all-time favorite sets.

    But I have one concern about the Guidry.
    It looks like the inscription is signed by someone else.
    The ink is different and so is the handwriting, including the slant.
    It looks like the inscription was added after by someone else.

    But the biggest reason it's most likely not authentic, is the Guidry '78 Cy Young inscription card is part of the 4-card Memorable Moments parallel, which have a purple border.
    The parallels also include Ryan, Score and Seaver, all of which you have with the correct purple borders.

    Even if Guidry signed the regular card with an inscription by accident, that doesn't explain the different ink and different handwriting.

    Sorry for the negative post, but since it's the final card to complete your set, I thought you'd rather know of the possible forged inscription and how you instead need the correct purple-bordered card, like your Ryan, Seaver and Score cards.

    You hit on some good points. The reason this is the last card that I needed is based on your observation that the handwriting is different. The loop on the "Y"'s are a dead giveaway. I've been passing on copies this card for years, hoping to find one that looked like the handwriting matched. They simply don't exist. The Guidry card exists in three variations. Base Gold, Gold with Inscription, and Purple Memorable Moments with inscription. I have all three variations. The three variations also exist for Herb Score.

    Yes I did collect the Moments set as well. I'm one card away from finishing the 2001 set with all variations. I still need the 2001 Willie Mays card. It rarely shows up and costs quite a bit. If I can ever find a copy of the Stargell redemption card I'll pick that up as well so I guess technically, I'm two cards away from finishing that set. I've contemplated starting the 2002 set if I can find a good starter set at a reasonable price. I also finished the 2004 set, series one and two.

    Wow, that's interesting.
    I guess Guidry forgot to write the inscriptions himself, so someone at Fleer wrote them in so the set would be complete.

    I'll look at the '78 Cy Guidry when I get home. Don't remember it looking that different.
