    What's this story on this?
    Thank you very much! I love that it is an autographed card with a memorabilia piece with part of his signature.

    Andre Dawson is a collector. He used to have a very impressive coin collection that he sold to open up a restaurant and he also collects certain cards of his. For a reason unknown to me, Andre Dawson was known to pay up to 3x Beckett high value for his 93 Finest Refractor back in the day making his refractor even harder to get. This copy is only the third copy I own of the reportedly 241 produced.

    Thanks for the info. Was familar with the inserts but not the difference with the '86 set and then the variation reprint. I always enjoy a good background story like that!

    I was reading your signature. You have 155K Dawson cards or just that many cards in general?

    I have that many Andre Dawson cards sorted, counted, and catalogued. I probably have at least another 10,000 Andre Dawson I haven't sorted, counted, and catalogued yet.

    Wow. That is dedication. I was looking for an image of numerous 5K boxes to post, but can't find a good one and mine are stuffed under my stairs, so I can't photograph them. That is 33 boxes filled with just Dawson.

    This is what I image at hawk's house then...

    My collection is currently taking up two rooms in my house and I am in the process of cutting it down to one room. I have all my extra Dawson cards separated by manufacture and then year and then card. I am in the process of converting all the 5000 count boxes to the same box. I used to have them on metal bakers racks but my mom needed them for her pantry and I'm going to build a custom cabinet for them anyways. But here are my extras setting on the floor right now.
