    When I was a teen I subscribed to and later completed my set of Sportscaster cards so this set is a good fit for me. Just bought my first binder of Sports Heroes on ebay last week...about 200 sheets...and discovered this thread last night after a search. Am curious as to how they were issued...were they in 12 card packs? 1,080 cards would be 90 total packs...almost the same amount of packs as Sportscasters but they were issued in 24 card packs for 91 series. Anyone have Sports Heroes duplicates for sale or trade? Let me know. Also was this the same company that did Sports Pages? Lots of questions but thanks for any help.

    @mrmopar - I have a Watters in a 49ers uniform, but I'm very surprised you don't have it as it was part of the first edition, Pkt.18 I believe.

    I'm working on documenting all the variations from a individual player perspective rather than a set collector and these are my observations so far. The first edition is 1994, but the last year these were distributed is hard to tell. Maybe 1998? I've purchased three different "starter" binders with 17 packets of 12 items. My starter sets have all been different, so they seem to have changed the starter set each year. At the packet level, whenever a player in the packet changed teams, an error was found, or a player reached a new milestone, it seems like the entire packet was updated and appended with a new packet number as @mrmopar showed in his screenshot at the beginning of the thread.

    Here are the variations I am seeing outside of the Packet release numbering:

    All Sports Champions/Baseball Champions/Basketball Champions/Football Champions - jersey changes, individual player highlights on the front page, How Good Was He? and other sections on the back where the player is compared to others and the stats and players that are compared often change

    Bloopers & Trivia - almost never has variations

    Greatest Moments - the only variation I've seen on this one is #17 Ali vs Liston. In Pkt.17 Ali's opponent is wearing black trunks and in future editions his opponent is wearing white trunks. Not sure if the boxer in the white trunk's is a different boxer or Liston from a different fight, but someone noticed it was incorrect and fixed it.

    Poster Pages - jersey changes and the questions for these seem to almost always change

    Record Book - jersey changes (not many) and on the front there is a vertical bar listing different records for the topic, for instance, Super Bowl records. These records are updated for each package release

    I guess it depends on when the original buyer was getting the pages. I have fewer of the higher numbers, presumably because they were issued later in the game. However, we also know that they were not issued sequentially, so some of the higher numbers are more common. Not sure why I have missed certain variations.

    I have only noticed physical changes to certain pages when they stood out, like a new team, but in checking the copyright lines, I have seen variations that way. I never noticed the GM variation for Ali/Liston, bit I do have 3 different copyright versions (03, 03a & 03d). I'll have to look to see if one of them has the different color shorts.

    I hope that there are no variations that come w/o a change to the copyright line, otherwise not sure I'd ever catch it.

    If you are talking baseball only, 9 is Reggie Jackson and 55 is Don Drysdale. I am sure I have multiples of both.
