    1986 Southern League All Star set
    The 25 cards were created and printed by Donn Jennings, a card shop owner who sold the cards through hobby publications and card shows up through the 1990s.

    The set was printed in massive amounts (compared to other regional and team minor league sets) and was reprinted a few times as Canseco, McGwire, Bo Jackson and Glavine rose to stardom.
    I remember tables at card shows in Dallas having stacks of these sets for years.

    As a result, the set can still be bought for under $10.
    Even PSA 9 McGwires can be bought for a few bucks because of overproduction of the set.

    It's a cool set to own because of all the future stars in it.

    Was one of my favorite sets back in the day - but the presses were definitely run hard and long on it
    Seeking any and all former Rutgers Scarlet Knights! David DeJesus, Jay Bergmann, Eric Young Sr, Todd Frazier, Brian Leonard, Ray Rice, Quincy Douby etc...

    If you just like me or want to be nice -
