    1994 Upper Deck Electric Diamond

    This listing has been on eBay for a long time: https://cgi.ebay.com/John-Olerud-1994-UD ... 5ad46a7a70 and the seller tries to impress "elite player collectors" that the silver backs are pretty rare. I recently checked my collection and my Electric Diamond is a silver back, so I just bought a card with a recent Beckett Marketplace order that was listed as just "Electric Diamond" for a quarter thinking it must be the "regular" bronze back. It turned out to also be a silver. A bronze back is on COMC also for a quarter.

    I was hoping someone here knows which version of '94 UD Electric Diamond is the more "rare" version: silver or bronze back? Or are they equally available? Surely the eBay seller isn't over-hyping a card he's trying to sell... they never do that!

    Thanks!

    Mines a bronze and for what its worth, I just looked at about 40 backs on COMC and didn't see a single silver. The site's being too slow for me to keep looking

    Silvers are without a doubt tougher but not sure they are really "legitimate" variations.

    Interesting... the silver back I recently bought was from Burbank on Beckett Marketplace. I would think that they of all people would know what's what and charge a premium for a "scarce" card. Maybe they mistakenly sent the wrong card? Oh well, looks like I still need the more common one.

    Thanks for the info.

    I have never heard of this variation. Does it exist for the entire set?

    According to the thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=22928&p=279506#p279506, possibly all of series 1 has the two variations. I think it's only the regular cards because I've never seen the Olerud variation for his "Future Is Now" subset card, just his regular card.

    Silver backs are very very tough! You just got lucky . I have both
    versions of the Griffey #224 card in a silver back both the regular and ED.
    My SCD says that 45 of series 1 cards can be found with the ED version in silver or bronze. It doesnt list who though. It doesn't mention anything about the regular issued cards having a silver back.

    Henderson has this variation. There is also a guy listing a regular version of the Henderson on Ebay for $40.

    I've been hunting for a McGwire for about 10 years.

    Nothin'

    I don't know if the variation spans out to that series though so I may be lucky

    Re: 1994 Upper Deck Electric Diamond

    Once again the collective knowledge of FCB has paid off. I was unaware of these variations. Back in 94 when I was busting this stuff looking for Michael Jordan RC like everyone else, I would buy all the Electric Diamond parallels I could find in the dime boxes at shows. I just went through all of mine that I could find so far and found three in series one and zero for series two.

    Card Number 60 - Rickey Henderson!!! Should sell well
    Card Number 89 - Dave Stewart
    Card Number 102 - Mike Mussina

    Will look through some PC binders now

    I've got a 3,200 ct. box of these somewhere. You're going to make me find it and look at all of them, aren't you?

    From my memory I believe that these variations were limited to series one only. I dont ever recall them being in series 2.

    Yeah, I read that earlier in the thread but figured it was worth a quick look to help confirm the fact. Does indeed seem to be the case...
