    Has anyone confirmed the existence of red star Grand Slammers other than Todd Benzinger? That's the one that I saw mentioned online and it is the one that I pulled as well.

    Love this thread!

    I've found at least 12 different border variations for the Will Clark Grand Slammers card #6.

    I looked through 50-60 Clark's and none have red star.

    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 able to pull out 19 cards that had the potential for variations. After going through just a few thousand of my stash from a different case I was able to confirm 8 new variations that were corrected. I've got a stack of about 10 cards that I'll continue to pull out and check so the list could grow. I also found two more All-Star cards (Stewart and Clark) that I'm nearly certain will have variations, I just need to pull out my AS stash and cross-check them.

    This set seemingly has no end to the amount of errors and variations to it. It shows no signs of slowing down, just a matter of when I decide to give up searching.

    I was also lucky enough to pull two DKs and the DK checklist with No Period after INC.

    All-Star Performance
    Recent Major League Performance
    All-Star Cards ----- Harold Baines, Julio Franco, Wade Boggs, Bo Jackson, and Kirby Puckett are all
    missing the "TM" trademark symbol next to the American League emblem on
    the front of their cards. No examples with the "TM" present are known.

    659 - 659 back with 665 number

    665 - 659 back

    Diamond Kings ----- Some DKs have been reportedly found with No Period after INC on back.
    These should be considered difficult, if not rare, and not all DKs are known to
    exist with No Period INC. A stark contrast to the availability of Period/No Period
    INC base cards.

    Perversely, I'm kind of enjoying this thread. It's one of the most useless sets of all time, but it still takes me back to my youth.

    Actually, it's not first tier useless, maybe second tier useless. The cards actually aren't really that bad looking. Nothing like 1991 Fleer or 1991 Donruss. And it has a lot of fun variations. Some of them are pretty trivial but hey who am I to judge.

    Speaking of which, I'd like a copy of the #111 Alomar "white dot" variation if anyone has an extra. Just for sh!ts and giggles. Glad to send you a couple bucks for it.
    Collecting Roberto Alomar. Over 4000 unique cards, but always looking for those I'm missing!

    Still is a favorite issue of mine although I gave up the chase years ago.

    The funniest card is the Neselek which lists his birthday as 1985 making him 5 years old when the card was issued.

    Can you confirm the 3rd version? If possible, can you provide a pic?

    Thanks!
