Excited to add this card to my personal collection. This may be my second favorite set of all time, behind the 2005 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia Tools of the Trade set.

Anyone have a complete list of all Puckett porcelain cards that are out there? I’ve never had a decent list of them so I haven’t really chased them much. I’m starting to pick up some now and am seeing a bunch of different ones.

Here are the Puckett R&N China cards I have. I’ve tried to describe the details on some as there seem to be a lot of minor variations.

Until last week, I had no idea that Puckett has a cameo on this card (and I assume the gold version).

Matthew, I have the following porcelain cards:

1989 Topps Porcelain magnet front only w/o magnet back (1985 Topps)

89.180a.jpg

1992 R & N Sports Nostalgia, unnumbered (1985 Topps)

92.258a.jpg92.258b.jpg

1992 R & N Sports Nostalgia/front the Heirloom Tradition back, Oversized and numbered (1985 Topps)

92.218a.jpg

92.218b.jpg

1993 R & N China numbered (1985 Topps). I'm not sure what year this actually is since it's not listed anywhere. When I bought, the listing said it was 1992/1993...

1993 R & N China (1993 Topps)

1994 R & N China/Danburry Mint Tomorrows Hall of Famers, numbered (1985 Topps)

94.219a.jpg

94.219b.jpg

1994 R & N China, unnumbered (1994 Topps)

94.218a.jpg

94.218b.jpg

1995 R & N China (1995 Topps)

95.88l.jpg

95.88b.jpg


I assumed they would have all had the collectible boxes, wooden bases and certificate/inserts included with them which is why I didn't chase them all until recently. The hunt continues for more. =)

1998 R & N China Keeper Series, numbered (1985 Topps)

98.07a.jpg

98.07b.jpg

1998 R & China Keeper Series, Numbered "AP" only (1985 Topps)

98.13e.jpg

98.13f.jpg

I believe the bottom one is from that Keeper Series run. It's not numbered the same, but has that "silver" finish that my other Keeper Series porcelain card has at least. I haven't noticed that "silver" finish on any other versions that I have which is why I assume both of these are 1998 versions at least.

That magnet display is petty cool, I had not seen that before. I also like the numbered "AP" item. Let me know if you happen across an extra 1994!

Not mine, I found it in completed auctions, but it’s really cool.

1993 Topps Porcelain Magnets. That display board is pretty sweet with a pretty big Puckett picture on the back and top.
