Thank you psj! That is a catalogued error, the card is actually from the 1992 Stadium Club Murphy Dome set. It's supposed to read "1991 World Series." There's a corrected version in addition to the error.

Take care,
Jeremy

I'm excited to see this thread! [MENTION=5592]jszczech[/MENTION] and [MENTION=3401]K34PuckettAddict[/MENTION] have amazing collections and I know there are other collectors here with great cards.

Here's a nice SGA. Only for children 14 and under. Took one of my boys to the game to get one. Wonder how many are still floating around out there.
I went to all three games that weekend! I remember the Twins advertising that SGA as the largest authentic autograph promotion ever. Definitely a super gesture for younger fans. I don't think many superstars would even consider doing such a promotion these days.

Magicpapa, that's an awesome jumbo card. It took me a long time to find one for my pc.

Josh, that's a nice rainbow! I'm close to completing the '82 version. I believe I just need the yellow.

Recent acquisitions I've been meaning to post...

Another of the "this should not be hard to find, but rarely shows up at the price it should..." cards. A BIN for less than $5 delivered.


Rediscovering Topps, the 1987 Topps was my first Puckett.


And a 1990.


I'd had a hard time finding the complete set back variation on the 1995 Fleer Panini stickers. Bought the set. If you need your guy, let me know. Looking to sell a few for a few bucks here or there to eventually cover my cost.




Picked up these two promos as part of a lot. The Extra Bases Preview is in pretty rough shape, but the price was right in my mind and I was just happy to add one.




I'm a big fan of the MSA discs and squares, and there are just a couple of discs that I now need after this 1988 Weis Winners addition. Lousy condition, but for 99 cents plus shipping, happy to take it in any condition.


Oh, and sometimes you just get lucky. BOOM!

These 1995 Fleer/Panini/SAIM CA Venezuelan stickers lasted 6 minutes and 36 seconds on eBay before I lucked into them while refreshing listings.

I am not a Kirby collector but I love this card and enjoy showing it. He was one of my favorite players and this is the only auto of him that I own.

Lots of nice pickups! Those Extra Bases promos are slick. I always wondered why only Steve Taft seems to have them and why they have such problems with the surface. Beckett has graded 15, including 4 Pucketts. Highest grade for all cards is 9.0 (only 5) and the highest Puckett, an 8.5 (mine :D).

Perhaps I'm missing the obvious and it's just because it's late, but it's bothering me that I can't immediately identify what the source material for the gold is on this Puckett relic? Is it a Gwynn swatch even though it's on the Puckett side?

The first thing it brings to mind for me is the 1994 MLB Anniversary logo. The coloring looks the same, but I can't imagine the patch being that size...

Awesome rainbow Josh! I still need the two yellows to complete mine.

I could use some help from anyone who may have 2004 Leaf Exhibits of Kirby Puckett and don't want, have doubles of or find at shows, etc. This set is driving me crazy and I would love to finish it. I'm missing 15 of the 88 cards in the set. Here's what I have and what I'm missing. Between Josh, myself and others we'd buy any of them that's found. Thank you!
