    I'm still missing the 90 Nova Promo and 92 Silver Promo (and possibly some others?). Hopefully they'll come up sooner or later.

    Very nice collection [MENTION=10901]Spike[/MENTION] ! I have a few Canseco I'm missing as well, still. Though, I have been able to pick up several missing pieces since I first made this thread!

    I vaguely remember them from the 80's. I never saw them at shops. They always seemed to show up at shows whenever a player got hot.

    My Star card page: https://www.markgrace.com/museum/starcards.html

    Star Company produced cards in limited quantities, with most production runs at or below 5,000 cards. They were sold in hobby shops by team in sealed, transparent plastic bags, known to many as "polybags." Cards were made available nationally through a small network of a half dozen so-called master distributors although some parts of the mid-west and various southern states received little attention among the distributor network. Many cards were initially purchased in response to ads in sports card magazines and even at various sporting events, including minor league baseball and hockey games. Sometimes limited Silver, Gold and Platinum promo cards were inserted one in every X sets, making for the rarest Star cards. Some sets were issued with the top card autographed and hand numbered, with a paper COA included.

    I need the darn Glossy Bay Bombers Promo.

    I've got all the sets in "opened/snap case" form, but also am trying to assemble all the sets that came in sealed bag for as well. I believe I have the Yellow Autod set somewhere, but also have these. Anyone know what other sets came sealed that I don't have? (Besides the Reg Bay Bombers and Reg Clark/Mitchell)

    I'm glad this thread got bumped ... Star really is a cool little oddball run to go after!

    Ryan, you think that '88 cameo with Canseco has a glossy version similar to the Clark Bay Bombers matte/glossy sets?

    I am in need of two Kirby Puckett Star sets if anybody has 'em. Looking for Puckett 1988 Glossy (#/250 I believe), and Puckett 1991 All-Star (#/500 I believe). If anybody has them, let me know, thanks!

    I haven't personally purchased any of these, but if you want error variations of the player you collect, there's an eBay seller that has a bunch of uncut sheets with incomplete print jobs. For example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-Star-Un...kAAOSw9r1V8e45

    I had actually ordered a sheet from them that had the Canseco blank backs but they were wrinkled on the front so I had to return :/
