I hosted Thanksgiving, which means my parents took advantage of their drive up here to dump some belongings...just your typical load of a few monster boxes of '90's glory. I thought I already had it all but apparently not. I was a well informed collector back in the day so I never find anything too stunning but I did come across this:

It's a class 3 Cliff Floyd, #21 but not the Gold Label stamp. Here's a Class 3 from COMC for comparision:

It's clearly not black or red or your regular gold. It comes off a little darker in the scan. It has a fully reflective "shimmer" finish on the stamp so it wouldn't appear to be a printing error. The back of the card has no serial numbering:

Any help? I apologize if I missed the obvious, wouldn't be the first time! Thanks!

Are you sure the card is not serial numbered? I know the did not use foil for the serial numbers so it is hard to see. It would be on the back to the top right of his picture if it was. If it is you will see the number when angled in the light.

Yea, I double checked for the impression of a serial number but there's nothing. This would have definitely been pack pulled as well, by myself.

I've seen blacks and although I could be wrong I don't recall them looking like this. The scan darkens the foil stamp, here's a photo. It's definitely silver, sslightly bluish.

Still think black. I've seen several blacks that are nowhere near black. There were no silver or platinum blue announced, and I've never heard of them. The three below are Row 1, 2 and 3 black, and look pretty similar to yours in hue.

Here's a black from my collection. The foil does indeed have a slight blue tint to it when you're looking at it.
