    Has anyone tried to remove the cardboard top of one of the gold EX's of some crappy player or cheap one to see if the gold color is consistent all the way through the card? I would think if you see 2 tones of gold on the card once the top cardboard cutout of the player is removed from the card, that might prove or disprove one way or the other. I don't have any of these, so my knowledge lies from this thread, but it might be worth a try if someone has a crappy player in hand.

    Not even the same color and I have seen cards change color around the edges but never on the entire card. You almost have to own one so you can see as scans don't show the color off to me.

    Looks like that Chipper came from a smoker's house! Gross.

    That's really not a definitive test though, the term sun damage is a bit of a stretch, as sun speeds up the chemical process, but it can happen without any sun exposure at all, as was the case with the Studio Stars I posted. That said, I'd be curious too.

    Big shoutout to [MENTION=11496]goobmcnasty[/MENTION]!

    I had had the one on the left, but to see the three Griffey Longevity's together really is awesome!

    1997 Donruss Team Sets Pennant Edition Jamey Wright #95 - should be easy enough to find right? Have never seen one copy and it's all I need for my team set.

    EDIT - oops you said Legacy... I need to l2read.

    I ended up getting all of my 97s from Burbank. Soon after, one came up but I haven't seen the Belle 97s aside from them. And oddly enough, they apparently still have more, because they are listed on eBay. Their prices are high as usual, but it was worth it to knock them all out.
