    this the 97 power package jumbo?

    I actually snagged the Bagwell a long while back. It went pretty cheap as a BIN I think.
    that is the only one i have seen of any player!!!!!!!

    Yes that is it is it available There is a Mark Mcgwire one pictured on the Mcgwire site.

    Well...I am assuming I have one. I mean, looking at the checklist, its the only one on there. Numbering matches up and everything. Trust me, once I got on ebay for the first time, a new giant door was opened to me.

    Scratches are on the holder its in...

    I purchased a large number of these when they were released (early 1997, IIRC) from vending machines at Toys R' Us in Burbank, CA. From what I recall, they were $0.50 a piece and there seemed to be 3-5x the amount of some players than others - Paul Molitor and Glenallen Hill immediately come to mind. I probably bought close to 100 cards from that machine and yes, the foil cards (1-6) are produced in smaller quantities. I spoke to the seller who has them up now, who worked for the vending company and he says that the 500ct vending boxes have far fewer of the foils than the remaining 42 subjects. It was also my experience that Barry Bonds' foil showed up more often than any of the other 5 players. I never once saw a Piazza or a Frank Thomas at the time. I remember that they were not available for very long either. I was trying to build a set, despite the maddening amount of duplicates and before I came close, the machine had been switched over.

    For years I held on to these singles, sometime in 2005 or so, I sold my lone Jeter, my Pucketts, Bonds, Sosa and Gwynn. All the remaining "semistars" were probably junked in a craigslist super-lot. I think by that time I was tired of waiting for a guide to acknowledge them. I searched often, but couldn't find any mention of them and interest was minimal.

    Apparently, UD also produced these sets for 1996-97 basketball and 1996 and 1997 football.

    I'm glad to see some interest in these oddball items and getting to talk to someone who distributed them is very helpful. Until a massive glut of them show up for sale, I'm pretty certain that these are considerably rare. Or rare in that "magazine pack" or chain-store exclusive way, not unlike 1996 Team Topps or any of those odd Wal-Mart packaging types that offered a jumbo version of an insert. We'll see, I guess.

    Anyone happen to grab the full checklist on these? If so, could you PM it to me? Thanks!

    You have I think a tough card but you can tell by the size and the non die-cut as the
    pack issued inserts were die-cut. Thanks for sharing.

    Bunch of 1998 Topps Tek Diffractors got listed by Burbank yesterday. Half have been sold, half are still available. Prices aren't too bad. I snagged a Grace I needed. Thought about buying a Jeter at $48, but didn't pull the trigger. It's gone now. Here's what's still available.

    I don't check this thread often but I decided to poke my head in here to give it a look.

    I emailed Chris Carlin about these sets a while ago and never got a response. I have a few of these sets and also have the football and basketball sets as well. I know Jordan has a foil card as well. I found these at a show a while back. I should have bought all the guy had but I thought they were those one per pack walmart type inserts or a redemption set. I'll have to see how many sets I have of each when I get home tonight. I know I bought most of the baseball sets but only 2-3 of the football and basketball.

    Let the MLB know youd like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.
