Thank you gents. So we have established that the recent ones are coming from the same seller overseas, who also had basketball and perhaps football versions with the same clear yellow plastic stock color that was never pack issued. In house test/proof run/prototype seems like the most likely explanation. I'll add to the updated checklist of observed cards. If I can come up with an extra base Manny I will leave it on a windowsill and that could close the book (or prove!) the yellowing theory
However, if I could get a Gwynn into my collection, then I'd think they're executive proofs, only one set made, then given by the owner of Fleer/Skybox to the leader of China in a good-will effort to extend production to their country.
^^^ Good stuff. Thanks for the laugh.
