I don’t remember posting pics of these pickups I added last summer. It’s a pair of 1990 Upper Deck errors, blank front and blank back.

I’m happy to have picked one of these up recently. It’s a cool card, heavy and thick. I wasn’t aware it was a metal card until I received it in hand. It looked like that was the case in the pics I’ve seen, but I wasn’t familiar with this set at all. It’s strange having Puckett included in releases from Topps again.

I was also pleasantly surprised by this card. It is way nicer than I thought it was when I bought it.

Checked off another odd variation that I’ve been chasing down for years. A fellow Puckett collector showed me this variation years ago that he found in a lot of cards he’d purchased. Until then, we’d never seen a blue 2002 Upper Deck Sweet Spots bat relic before and had only seen green ones. It’s more than likely just a print variation that didn’t have enough yellow ink or whatever to produce the standard green color almost all of them have. I’ve been on the hunt ever since seeing his blue version and finally found one on COMC. I hit buy and thought I’d have to wait a long time for it to arrive, but it was here very quickly, less than a week.

Anyone else see a different color variation for their player from the set?

Think I still have a couple blue tinted ones that came in a lot I picked up a while back. I didn't realize it was a variation though. I never really chased that set much. I'll try to dig this weekend and see if I still have them. I don't even remember what players they were off the top of my head.

Hello all! It’s been too long. I always enjoy seeing your additions! Haven’t picked up a lot of noteworthy stuff. A few finds on COMC that I’ve finally gotten around to requesting shipment for. One steal of a deal that I need to figure out what to do with. But other than that, just a lot of low end 2021/2022 items.

I know some of these eBay sales can be a little flaky, but yikes! Glad to have these already locked down.

1.20.22 - 1996 Circa Rave - $403.87
1.30.22 - 1996 Leaf Studio Silver Press Proof - $405
2.5.22 - 1996 Pinnacle Skylines - $242.50
2.12.22 - 1996 Select Artist’s Proof - $63.80
2.20.22 - 1996 Ultra Thunderclap Medallion - $232.50
2.27.22 - 1996 Fleer Promo/Prototype (Green) - $350
2.27.22 - 1996 Select Certified Blue - $244.50

Hey hey, I’m with you, I enjoy seeing what other Puckett’s everyone is picking up, so keep them coming everyone.

Yeah, some of those recent prices have been crazy to see. That Pinnacle Skylines card has done that years ago as well, so it ebbs and flows, but may be the least surprising to me in that list along with maybe the Green ‘92 Fleer Promo.

The ‘96 Select Certified blue is the most surprising to me from the list with the Circa Rave my second most surprising.

Agreed the 1992 Fleer promo seems to be pretty standard unless I just don't pay attention.
There is a purple promo on ebay now. Seller wants $600 which seems to be in line with past sales.
