    1997 UD Jumbos

    Hey all. I just opened a box of 1997 UD2 and it had an oversized 5" x 7" box topper of #350 Galarraga. I couldn't find any info for this in a quick search. Anyone know the details of this card/set?.

    My guess is some sort of retail issue. They issued a lot of jumbo cards then but some sets are much harder to find. 1997 collector's choice is a tough one for example.

    Current Most Wanted Kirby Puckett's (As of 2/5/17):

    That makes sense if was in an oddball box with only 10 Packs. The box does not say Hobby or Retail. Perhaps a specific product for some retailer.

    Those are impossible to find. Never seen a Juan Gonzalez. Would pay greatly for one.

    It's not that set. I deleted the post. It's not the 1997 UD Jumbo 1996 Award Winners Jumbo either, although Galarraga is in that set.

    Here's a pic of the box it came out of. I bought a lot of old wax from a guy who said he cleared out a clearance rack at a kmart years ago. No guarantee it was from Kmart though.

    A Free Blow-Up Card! Funny I don't see these mentioned on any of the websites with set info. Wonder if every player had one.

    I have the bagwell base jumbo, but there is supposedly a jumbo of the preeminence subset that I've never seen, so unsure if they were made or if it's just an error on a checklist

    Let the MLB know youd like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.
