It is a fascinating set to collect, but I grew tired of buying one or several books and only finding 1-2 new pages or variations that I actually needed. In fact, getting new pages seemed toughest, as the last batch I bought only had variations that were new for me. I have 100s of duplicates now. The shipping always kills you, because people tend to practically give away the binders for little to nothing. I assume it is the size and perhaps the last of publicity, but these really have not grabbed the attention of most collectors and may never do so.

    I may have missed 1 or 2 when I was compiling, but odds are I was not even aware of some of the dual subject/same number pages, since I do not even have a full set yet. I show 11, 24, 43, 77, 93 & 95 dual subjects for baseball. Missing at least 1 you are aware of. Baseball is my primary collecting interest, so it stands to reason I would have a better understanding of that portion. In football, I was only aware of 1 dual (41). Missing at least 3. For basketball, I was aware of 37, 39 (three players!) & 90. Missing several. I also show 29, 32, 34, 43, 44 and 48 as dual subjects in the poster pages. You may know this and have not broken that out.

    I'd need to know more about what you mean by variations to compare to my list. Is that what I talk about earlier in the thread, with the different copyright lettering (47, 47a, 47c, etc)?
    Sports Heroes Feats and Facts is the Facebook group. It is a closed group so go ahead and put in a request and I'll be happy to add you.

    Send me your numbers to complete your set. I'll see what I have. Happy to help.

    When I purchase books I ask them to be shipped out of the binder (circles tear easy) and I ask if they will ship Media "Book" Mail. Most are happy to do so. Takes longer to receive but, definitely cheaper!

    Have same player but in a different uniform...

    Baseball #'s 3, 8, 24, 27, 35(3), 43, 45(3), 50, 51, 57, 75, 76, 79, 92, 93, 96, 98, 99, 108, 110, 118, 125, 133, 138, 157, 162, 163, 169, 176

    You have to be the subject matter expert on these. This is more info than I have found collectively on them. I didn't know Arod had a page #1. Interestin, as Bo Jackson has at least a #31, a, b & d pages, so Arod must be an e or f page. Obviously issued in the latter run of the series, which is where most of my needs come from. As with Sportscasters, the subscriptions probably dropped off more and more as time passed, so finding the higher numbers can be a little tougher. At least I assume that is how it went. I don't know if these were issued in numerical order. I would think not, but based on some of the changes in players and who is included, the higher numbers were mostly later issues I am guessing.

    Yes Arod was a late replacement into the set.
    You would receive random numbers in a pack each month. After the first year they added onto the original set so the higher numbers are more difficult.
    Football card #13 is the most scarce of all of them. OJ Simpson.
    They pulled and destroyed his folder almost immediately after print. I am fortunate to have one in my collection. All these years and i have never seen another one.

    Interesting. I suppose that is one I will probably never find from the sounds of it. Who else am I missing from the duplicate numbers and I'll fill in the blanks on my waitlist? Thanks again.

    Below are the links to my Master index.
    Disregard the "extras" as they have changed and I have not updated my "signed" column as well.

    I have not had the time to create ones for Greatest Moments, Bloopers, Poster Pages and Record Books YET. In the works.

    Let me know if this works for you @mrmopar

    Those lists will be helpful to determine quantity of teams/uniforms for the multiple pages for a single player, but won't know what I have of each until I go through each book. I now have what is likely the complete master checklist thanks to you. I am creating my own similar spreadsheet now but mine will also have the different copyright designations as well. It will take some time for sure.

    In the end, I have a ton of dupes, so if we are able to help each other out in some way, that would be great.
