    I primarily collect Ryne Sandberg cards, and tough 90's inserts and parallels are among my favorite items of his to chase. Here are some of my favorites. Thanks!

That's what makes no-namers tougher to collect - the product is out there but will it ever get listed?
    I see 10 pages of cards for Jeff Conine on https://sportlots.com/ I can understand why most don't list them but that's what craigslist is for as well post an add looking for Jeff Connine cards 1997 Pinnacle Inside Club Edition is hard to find for Jeter it was on my list for years before I picked one up. Rare cards no matter if there common or not do get listed quite often no matter who it is. The fact that Jeter has so many collector's collecting him they buy and most don't resell or they put such a high price your not interested in buying it. There are quite a few rare cards I see there. I am pretty sure it's not the rare cards you are looking for as I am pretty sure those pop up more often than his commons. Do you have a needs list as well as I am willing to help anyone find cards there looking for to help with there collection. Who knows I might have some but I would need to look and that will take a long time. The fact of the 15 Mirror Golds I know where they are only 1 was for sale and it was a lot more than I could pay. I haven't seen a Crusade Red get listed for years not to mention a bunch of others. I know why on a lot of them because it's 1 or 2 people buying all the cards and never been seen by another for years. I don't think it's any easier or harder to collect superstars or commons each has it's challenges so if anything I would say there equally as hard to find for me people holding and not selling for someone like Jeff Conine it's the profit they will make why would I list an item on ebay that most people won't buy for $1.00 to include shipping. https://sportlots.com/ is a great place if your looking for commons

    Thanks for the nice welcome everyone. Does anyone have a rough estimate of the print run of the 1997 Pinnacle Select Mirror Golds? They seem to be more readily available than their predecessors of 1996 Select Certified Mirrors.

    I believe George said around 75-90, somewhere in that range. Still difficult for 90's standards, and probably undervalued compared to other inserts with similar print runs.

    I found a card I need on a foreign website that appears to be for sale, but I can't read it let alone tell what language it is. Any help? It's about the 10th card down - you'll know it when you see it...

    If you use Chrome you can translate pages to english. I'm sure other browsers do it as well but I'm familiar with chrome. It's not always perfect but it's legible

    [MENTION=4682]RustyGreerFan[/MENTION] it also appears that particular one was listed back in 2011 and is no longer available. The page is in Japanese and is the pricing of available cards (Yen)

    I have 69 of a player, 68 of another, and 65 of a third. I knew a few guys at Pinnacle. The thought was 45 set were packed out, 30 sets (of all colors) were to be given away to employees. At some point in 1998/99 D&A bought a bunch of Pinnacle stock that included the 30 sets plus the 1998 Mirror Red and Gold proof sets.

    I always thought 75 but having 69 of one makes me wonder if the number is not a shade higher. I have considered 90 in past conversations but the lack of any of my players in the past 3-5 years makes me believe 75 is pretty close.

    Thanks for the help, guys! At least now I can say I've seen it. Hard to believe there's a card from 17 years ago with 50 issues that I've never seen until now.

    Send the guy an email using translation tools, you never know! Plus what a great story that would make if he still has it around!
