No Canseco. Only 12 cards available as 1993 Triple Play Previews.Any ideas if Canseco has one?
Thanks for the response guys. Can anyone tell me if a "legitimate source" has ever posted the differences? PSA won't slab it as a preview unless they basically read it in beckett or sports illustrated, even though I saw it come out of a cellophane pack.No Canseco.

Found the original thread:
and a picture of my Grace "Little Hotshots" Preview (top) and Regular (bottom). Again, the most identifiable difference is the "ghosty" Triple Play logo.
The 93 Triple Plays are really tough to identify. Virtually identical to the issued cards, but the Triple Play logos are "ghosty" on back, while the regular cards have sharp definition. Also from the two I have, the red color outlines and name are darker on the regular version, and the number behind the player name is darker gray. I spent a long time looking for a Grace. The buyer I got it from had an unopened clear cello-wrapped pack of promos, so I know these were the promos even though there's no clear identification.
92 Triple Play previews are clearly marked "Preview" on back, and people assume the 93's are too, but they are not.
The black drop shadow behind the name on front is thinner on the previews. Here's scans of the Ripken card that shows it (tunahead's card). The Triple Play logo is fuzzy as it should be too.I believe there is something on the front too. Something with the block lettering on top? Maybe the shadowing?
