    I'm suprised at some of the items on the list. They are quite scarce.

    I had no idea there were variations. I have a bunch of these boxed sets from 87 or 88, I got when I went to visit Baseball & Boardwalk In Florida years ago....Looks like I'll be digging through boxes over the weekend

    There was a '98 Instant Win Griffey on Ebay about 3-4 months ago for $599.99. It did not sell at that price. I sold a '97 Ramirez for $125, a '97 Vlad just sold for around $40. My guess on the Griffey would be $400 ish.

    Interesting, thank you for the info! Haven't been tracking them for a few years now.

    I don't know the story of how the no slash cards were discovered/distributed, but I suspect it was not from retail sets. I got mine on ebay (like most others) and even have a uncut strip of 2 and my guess would be that some sheets were made with the omission, discovered and then "scrapped". Someone may have cut them down to sell like many of the other error cards that mysteriously enter the market with little to no information.

    That 2001 Donruss Ben Sheets card that ended up being a redemption. Back when I collected him, I remember seeing one pop up and go for well over $100, and he's not worth it.

    2010 Topps Update Gold SPs are another one, I've had a few that I sold for $30 a pop.

    2001 Donruss All Time DK Will Clark, a redemption that never turns up, same story as many redemptions from the early 2000s.

    If the 1991 Donruss Bonus Cards Andy Hawkins "Pitcher" actually exists, I bet one would sell for stupid money, more than every other Andy Hawkins combined.
    I'm DelBacon on Sportlots, tons of great cards!

    Just how valuable/rare is the corrected Matt Pender with the gold back? I have 2-3 which I received from UD years ago.

    I've sold several Matt Pender corrected SILVER refractive foil cards over the years.

    I haven't checked this one out in a while but how about the 2010 Elite Manny Machado non auto you got as a bonus if you sent the Jordan Swaggerty auto card (Magic auto) in for replacement?

    Here's a HawkinsClick image for larger version.

    A set very few master collect, wildly unpopular and lacking any key rcs. The card is very rare, at this point easily rarer than a 1990 UD Mike Witt but so few people care to own it. $22 is a steal.
