    The Canseco promo is supposed to be from 1992.. the one he listed is the first card from the 1990 set and there isn't a promo for that year so I asked for a scan of the back and got no answer.

    I didn't scan the back because it sold shortly after you asked about it. Sorry!

    Ya I had asked about the Clark too but I shoulda just pulled the trigger. I have 2 of them but each has a different # to call on the back so I was wondering what this one had as a #. The ones I have have specific stores numbers put over the basic number.

    These things sold a LOT faster than I thought... I probably undersold them, but I'm still happy given what I paid. It's amazing that as much as I've bought over the years and as much as I've seen, I STILL come across previously unknown cards. Part of the reason why I love this hobby

    Yeah absolutely . I've seen so many old "new" things in the last 1-2 years. It def keeps it interesting.

    I just went upstairs to compare mine with what was listed on Ebay and they look identical on the front.

    The back of the card would be where the difference is.. instead of stats it would have promo information on it where to buy etc. but like I said the promo is supposed to be from 1992 which they never released a Canseco set in that year. I would have to assume the Canseco promo would look like the Bagwell shown above with the Colla stamp on front not just a "Broder" looking card. It was one of the few old unicorns I still had left on my list that I'd never seen or heard of despite seeing the back of the Nolan and Bagwell with the checklist of players on it as proof it did exist or was planned to.

    many years ago a member on here put me in touch directly with Barry Colla and he couldn't even give me any info on it.. He told me he had copies of most of the cards he printed but that wasn't one of them. I also asked about the All Star Game promo thats been claimed by checklists for years and I guess promo sets were given out but its another unicorn of which I don't ever remember seeing a single copy of.

    My copy looks exactly like what he had online, so no logo or anything on the front. On the back, it has a phone number and such as to where you can order from, or similar. I assumed I got it from you, but I guess not! The all star promo one is something I'd love to have, but not sure if it exists.

    Here is what I can add

    I have 2 Clark 1990 Promos , as you can see on the back , one has a custom type phone number/store that was added on top of the other number. Not sure if the store did it or if Colla did it for stores who carried their items. I am curious if more variations exist.
