    I think I found it on eBay, it looks like a 1993 silver foil. If there's a Frank Thomas player collector out there they might be willing to pay close to the asking price for it, but I haven't paid more than $10 for any of these cards for the player that I collect. Even at $10 it was a red foil card which is a lot more rare than silver. I think the only players whose cards sell for considerably more have multiple player collectors who are bidding each other up.

    But like the other guy said it never hurts to try.

    Seems a little high but his Gold RC went for $35. On avg. looks like his Rediscover cards sell for about $20 overall. Lots of Big Hurt collectors out there to help drive up the price. I got the Thome 93 Silver for $4 and his 93 Gold for $8, but that was right after they came out.

    Yup that's what I'm waiting for. Hopefully fill in a few holes in some rainbows. The damn reds are impossible to find.

    Could someone explain why these seem to be (to my uneducated eye) so much more popular than standard buybacks? Thanks!

    Anyone put together a "rainbow" of one particular card yet? I'm short the red. (Edit - just saw the Grubers in this thread)




    I've only managed (and only seen) one Zimmer red.

    I'm short the 88 topps base Puckett gold for the set. I too only have one red. I haven't seen nearly as many with the release of series 2.

    These two blue's came in a recent COMC shipment. I've said it before, I love blue foil. Love it.



    Also from COMC added the silver and gold for Billy Beane's 1987 Topps (already had Bronze). Missed the blue on eBay at some point in the last 6 months. If anyone can help me with the blue or red Beane, it would be appreciated! I'm surprised more Beane's haven't shown up in general.

    It's all over the map- I've picked up seemingly 7-8 Bronze ones of my player but haven't seen a red or blue listed since launch day. Only speaks more to the fact that there is no rhyme or reason to which cards get stamped.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    That was my Gruber rainbow, I found all of his 1987 cards. I'm one card short of rainbows for his 1988, 1989 and 1990 cards too (2 red, 1 blue).

    It's been a long time since a red or blue Kelly Gruber buyback has shown up...

    These rediscover cards are baffling to me. Currently, I have 26 different which can be seen here: https://www.tanmanbaseballfan.com/my-...age_number_0=1

    I have NEVER seen a red on any of them, and some I've seen gold/silver/bronze but never blue. Others, I'll have seen 2 blue but no bronze, etc. So, so strange. I don't know if Topps stuck with the same production numbers across the board on these colors, or if they even missed some colors for certain players, but they have been out for nearly SEVEN MONTHS - you'd think that since they were offered over multiple products, that more would have come to light.
