    Wowzers, that is a tough one. Nice grade too.

    Last raw one I saw sold in the $50-60 range, i missed out. I'm sure it was a Griffey or Frank guy that bid it up

    Really awesome stuff everyone! I just picked up a lot of 150+ Piazza cards. No GU or autos, but it was a fun lot of base and inserts to sort through. Here is the entire lot if anyone wants to look through it:

    hey Art, the Red isn't (the one I got from you was #20 /25, this one is #5 /25). I think the Purple is and the Green is not.

    I thnk that was a pretty good price. Not a lot of Marlins patch cards and arguably the two best catchers of that generation. argument can also be made for Posada.

    or it could have been a Bagwell guy. Some of his stuff has been extra active lately. This is one i need too.

    Picked this up at the flea market today. I am pretty sure this is Piazza on the cover. Can you guys verify this for me? And anyone need it?

    Here's a link to Beckett's description of the 1997 Score Stand and Deliver. The Gold foil with silver letters were part of a redemption program. I believe an estimated 225 sets were made of the Gold foil with silver letters, for the Gold foil with red letters it is unknown (perhaps <25). Picked it up from a boardmember who bought a fully-framed set sometime last year.

    https://www.beckett.com/baseball/1997...eliver/?ref=cj

    Randomly inserted in series two packs at a rate of 1:71 (retail) and 1:47 (hobby reserve), this 24-card set features color player photos printed on silver foil card stock. The set is broken into six separate 4-card groupings. Groups contain players from the following teams: 1-4 (Braves), 5-8 (Mariners), 9-12 (Yankees), 13-16 (Dodgers), 17-20 (Indians) and 21-24 (Wild Card). The four players featured within the Wild Card group are from "lesser" teams not given a shot at winning the World Series. Each of these cards, unlike cards 1-20, has a "Wild Card" logo stamped on front. Collectors were then supposed to gather up the particular group that won the 1997 World Series, in this case - the Florida Marlins. Since none of the featured teams won, the 4-card Wild Card group was designated as the winner. The winning cards could then be mailed into Pinnacle for a special gold upgrade version of the set, framed in glass.

    [MENTION=2840]BunchOBull[/MENTION], how rare are those samples exactly? I know you've had them for a while but would love the backstory if there is one.

    some recent pickups - had been looking for this one for a while, then like 3 popped up on ebay in one month earlier this year...



    and a biggie...

    My understanding is that the Prized Samples are more rare than the pack inserted Preferred Prized collections; something like 30-50 of each produced. That said, I don't remember where and when I received those figures, but they're tough for sure. The Elite Prime numbers are much more plentiful, but still not overly available.



    That perfect 10 is HUGE! Congrats!
