FS 1988 Michael Paraskevas Cards For Sale

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase the entire set of 1988 Michael Paraskevas cards to acquire the Don Mattingly card that I have been trying to obtain for some time now. For those that are not familiar with these cards, Michael Paraskevas is an artist who printed a limited edition run of 250 of these cards that were then given away to art directors he worked with at the time (he was doing a lot of editorial illustration back then), his friends and supporters. Paraskevas produced sets of cards for three years: 1988, 1989 and then again in 1994. These are printed on thick, card stock paper and were hand cut. I have been collecting Mattingly cards for over 20 years and have only seen these for sale three times during that period. As I purchased the set with the intention of keeping just the Mattingly I wanted to offer the balance of the cards to player collectors before putting them on ebay on Sunday as I know how rare these cards are.

Here are the cards from the set and prices. Im always willing to entertain trades for rare Mattingly cards from his playing days that I don't have or discounts if you purchase multiple cards.

List has been updated and prices reduced! Make an offer if your interested in any of them.

Good job with the pricing! :) I told myself I will not go over $20, but couldn't resist last minute. Plus, I was happy to get rid of an Ebay gift card that was burning a hole in my wallet.
Thank you for making these available!

Ditto! Thanks for making them available, surprised Nolan didn't go for more but happy to bring it home!
Is it still possible to get these on here, instead of eBay?
