    I concur. I have several copies and there are no irregularities.

    Yeah, this one only has irregularities because of the case it was in. I've seen 3 or 4 Thomases in different states of even yellowing.

    I picked up a Jeter and this was brought up a few months ago I can't remember there thoughts but I don't believe it was from the sun. It looks mostly like a test run that they might have passed on it.

I seem to recall a picture of a Griffey shown here on FCB...but don't recall any info being provided on it at all. I may have found images of McGwire and Piazza on the web. Any info is appreciated.

    I gave up on debating whether these were legitimately gold long ago. Some people just refuse to believe. The exact same technique was used a few years later in 2003 EX Essential Credentials Future.

    They were discussed on 3-30-16, starting with post #16037 . I brought them up when several got listed on ebay. I grabbed the Vlad for $2, others went cheap too. They're definitely not yellowed by the sun (color is too consistent), they were some sort of test run as far as I'm concerned.

    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

    Well, I do not have the Gwynn, so I think they're yellowed by a light, probably a grow-light in some marijuana production plant, where some loser stoner is trying to make a quick scam.
    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.

    So because you don't have a Gwynn you are saying there fake that doesn't make since. I am pretty sure they had made other years sort of like what this card looks like I could pull some examples. This has the same look as the card that has been mentioned an I am sure it wasn't from Sun Light or any other suggestion you can mention. I have seen quite a few E-X color variations on different years and I can tell you seeing the card in person it's nothing that you have mentioned.
