Does anyone have other Dad’s Kid Corp 3D cards of Puckett? I’d like to know if there are other cards/years available. I have an ‘88 score on my want list as a 3D cut card, I assume it’s a Dad’s Kid Corp card. Would love to know about or see pics of different ones you may have.

The ‘91 Fleer Provisions is the new one I recently found and the only open one I have so far... the two ‘91 Donruss are the different border variations from that year...

My "rare error" Puckett has had some setbacks. I let the glue dry too much, so I think the tear might fck up now. . . I will have to peel it off with the tweezer method.

I have to assume that set is uncataloged, at least for the different cards they may have used. I have not seen a checklist at all, even of the players featured period. I have a F. thomas and R. Henderson, maybe 1 other i feel I am forgetting. I believe both are 91 Donruss.

I can’t wait to see it. Please share a picture when it’s ready.

The glue came off too easily, it did not give the desired effect. I think the error streaks might be redone with peanut butter or olive oil. Undecided.

The card was turned into a fisherman theme, based on the angle he is holding the bat. . . it kind of looks like dick n balls though. 🧐 Also some sunglasses because the glare off the lake can be brutal when fishing.

That makes sense. Most of the ones I’ve seen are from 1991. There’s a 1992 Sandy Alomar listed on eBay now. I was hoping someone had different Puckett’s I could see pics of.

I picked up 6 other players in the lot I bought to get the Puckett Provisions card. I’ll snap a picture Incase someone needs them. I think there were three Cal Ripken Jr cards, 2 were the same...

I have kept track of these over time, but I doubt this is a comprehensive list.

I thought those cards were neat when they first came out, but can I just say that "Dad's Kid Corp" is the stupidest name for a company I have ever heard?

Anyone have other examples of Puckett glove tags? I have some others on my want list, but haven’t seen any besides these three.

I'd seen references to Puckett being in Wave 5 of 2020 Topps T206 on eBay. Is this the first visual confirmation of a Puckett return to Topps products in some capacity?

Well, interesting you posted that. I bought a sweet patch card from the set without reading the listing title...so I missed it was a digital card. The seller clearly included digital in the title, so I’m not arguing for a refund. I didn’t read it and just purchased from the picture. I won’t be buying anymore 1’s and 0’s though as I could have just saved a picture of the listing image instead. Man I feel really old today... digital cards?? And I bought one for $25.

Anyone know if physical cards of Puckett are actually coming from this T206 set or are they all going to be digital?

Also worth noting, Puckett hasn’t ever had an official digital card available from Topps or any other company until today, so this was all new to me. I’ve lived under a Puckett rock for 33 years.

I just checked and you are correct. What is funny about these digital cards is that people do buy them, either as aftermarket purchases or through the playing of the game and buying coins/diamonds, yet you can view ANY card and it looks no different than if you owned it! I enjoy logging on throughout the day to get the free spins, packs and such, but would never consider buying coins and I will have to admit that I bought a couple Garvey cards early on, but paid about $1 for each one. Oddly enough, I have seen them sell for more since. I wonder what my whole portfolio would be worth to the right person. I might only have a few cards anyone really wanted, because I have not paid for them. I have 73,548 cards at current count, which I am sure is chump change compared to many. I have exactly 1 Iconic card and it is of a common. I have 34 super rare cards. From there, it jumps up dramatically, so I am guessing the Super Rare and Iconic are the only cards anyone would really covet.

Absolutely floored to see this too!!! I wonder if a statute of limitations expired allowing Topps to finally use his image again? I thought the Puckett estate was blocking licensing of his image to Topps. Or maybe Upper Deck had exclusive rights?
