    I've seen 21 different ones for him. 8 of those are 1/1. The highest print run I've seen is /18. Ive managed to win 13 total, including 5 1/1s. His print runs overall are much smaller than others I've seen.

    A HUGE, Im talking YUGE mailday. Top row is all 1/1. Love the 09 Topps showing him as an all-star. So fun story I was in a player break last week where I won the 96 Topps, which I had already bought. When I opened that mailer today there were two cards! I had missed the 97 Topps because I was trying to skip the 30 seconds or so of dead time between boxes, must have skipped a box or two, that was an amazing surprise! As a bonus I had never seen the 97 Topps pulled or up for sale.
    It's probably been 3 years since I got 6 new Wakefields in one day...what a great day!

    Funny, I went after a few and his cards are selling pretty strong. I really like his 76T card, one I remember from when I was a kid. I probably wouldn't spend more than $10-12 for a Sanguillen and you'd hardly have to spend half that on a TTM/IP of the same card, but there must be a demand.

    I am a buyer on any oddball Dodger certified autos, as long as the price is reasonable, so maybe it's a Pirate fan happy for certified Sanguillen cards.

    I'm sure you nailed it, a couple team collectors can really drive demand in a limited set like this, this set is full of guys just like that. If wakefield hadn't ever gone to the Sox and stayed on a smaller market team I'm sure his prices would be cut in half...which I wouldn't mind.

    Two more logs on this roaring bonfire. I keep seeing new ones pop up too! Up to 22 or 23 different ones I've seen now! These two mark the 14th and 15th I've received, still have a couple in transit as well.

    Nice job adding so many of them. Everything looks to be really low numbered so its nice to see them going to a good player collection. Good luck adding some more.

    Thanks, you're right, comparatively they are pretty low numbered. Highest I've seen is /20, but more than half are /10 or less. Makes it hard to wait for the best price because who knows how many of each one I might see.

    Great looking cards. It seems so odd to see Wakefield in a Pirates uni. I know he started there but he just doesn't look right.

    I do like the early 90s half mullet though, the 94 stadium club is the best example, just top notch male grooming

    Don't know if you collect memorabilia or not [MENTION=13789]bstanwood[/MENTION] but saw this nice looking g/u auto'd bat while looking for something else. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1992-93-Lou...MAAOSwridaCSjJ

    I have seen that one, I've talked to the seller through PMs. The price he will come down to is still higher than I want to pay. Thanks for the heads up though, I appreciate that.

    I'm not an expert on game used bat prices but it did seem kind of high compared to everything else on ebay. Hopefully he'll come down more.

    In my conversation he seemed to be playing up the auto and the break in the bat as selling points, which certainly enhances it to some degree but at the end of the day he's a pitcher, a game used bat has to be at the right price, that's not his main tool. Particularly for Wakefield who was a failed minor league first baseman, swinging the lumber wasn't his thing.

    It's a double stadium club mailday! As I was snapping the picture it occurred to me that the 96 team tsc has many ink color combos, I'll have to keep my eye out, I haven't looked to see if they appear in this release.
