    Thought I would bump this thread with a fun acquisition. This one had been teasing me for a while and the price seemed to keep getting a little better. Then with the 10% eBay bucks I took the plunge! I didn’t start out trying to do it but I have a nearly complete set at this point too. Missing a couple of the keys in Will Clark and Frank Thomas but many of the ones I do have are BGS 9s and 9.5s.
    What’s the story behind these? Why are they so rare?

    A very limited amount of 5" X 7" cards were produced. These issues were never formally released but these cards were intended to be premiums in retail products. I've also heard they were salesman samples................... so who really knows
    Let the MLB know you’d like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.

    I've told this story for years, but I got one of the DKs out of the bottom of a box of 1992 Donruss cards at a gas station. It was just in a white sleeve, totally unmarked. I almost missed that it was even there because it just looked like the bottom of the box. I spent the summer buying all of the packs from this box, grabbing one or two with my allowance when we would go to the lake on the weekend. I asked the gas station attendant how much for it and they just gave it to me. I have no idea where it is, but if I ever find it, there is another Frank Thomas out there.

    you sure it was 1992? 1994 had them as toppers
    Each retail waxbox came packaged with a 5" X 7" oversized Diamond King as a box topper, which is serial-numbered to 10,000 copies. also 1993 had Elite Supers, not sure how they were distributed

    100% sure. I opened so many packs of 1992 Donruss that year, and I don't know how anyone could confuse the design of 1992 with 1994 lol

    Also, the 1994 oversized Diamond King cards were marked as such on the envelope. This envelope was just white with nothing on it. It just looked like the bottom of the box.
