By the way, I can confirm the 98 Crusade Roberto Alomar unreleased green card exists because I have it. It's #145.
Collecting Roberto Alomar. Over 4000 unique cards, but always looking for those I'm missing!
Not trying to pee in the pool here, but does anyone know if COMC has any issues with their scans being used? I know that this type of "intellectual property borrowing" became a huge issue with Beckett eventually, with folks sharing "their checklists".
Not sure how rare this is vs. others from the 1996 Aficionado First Pitch Preview set, but just picked up this Ben McDonald for $.99 with free shipping. I mean - the math on this is neurotic. $.55 for first class stamp and envelope, $.32 for paypal fees, $.10 for ebay fees. By my math the seller just got paid 2 cents to sell this card to me, assuming free listing and no other costs. Yikes. There are a handful of sellers out there like this guy - making no money at all or even losing money just in transaction costs, assuming initial cost of the cards was free. Does anyone see how this makes any sense for them? Not complaining here, happy to find a great deal!
I took about a year off from collecting and reorganizing my collections and have just started getting back into it. Grabbed the Ortiz the minute I saw the listing. As for the Bonds (1993 Donruss Masters of the Game), I have been looking for an original Dick Perez and was amazed to find it for as cheap as I did. Being a kid of the early 90's, I always loved the Diamond King Inserts of '92 and all of the Elite inserts that Perez had a hand in. I think it's funny since generic art in 2nd hand stores sells for as much.
Here's Manny Ramirez #147 CTA unreleased. I've got 9 total crusade cards for Manny: pack issued, executive prrof XX/#, and these unreleased CTA. I have it in the back of my mind that there may be a 4th version, that being the regular pack issued version of the cards with no serial # and no XXX, the area of the serial number location is just blank. I think I recall seeing version of Jose Cruz Jr. like that. The thought was that they might have been replacements for pack damaged cards...anybody else remember seeing those for any other players?
These definitely exist at least for the leaf rookies and stars set. A while back I had about 40-50 of these both greens and reds. I donít recall having any purples. Another seller recently sold a handful of the reds...they went cheap before I could snag them. Recent sales were for Kerry wood, Rich butler, a few others. Search for prior listings and you can see them. Havenít seen no serial versions from the base 100 card set but they may yet be out there. A never ending chase! Have been following/dealing in crusades since around 2000.
