It's been slllloooooow going of late. Picked up a few Kirby cards, but not a lot of note.

I was pleased to acquire this 2021 Topps Allen & Ginter Stained Glass card. Nice look.

Also, I was unfamiliar with the 1989 Smokey's Fire Prevention Activity Book. I'm a fan of the vintage artwork and only one page of this book had been used (connect the dots).

The activity book compliments one of my favorite items, the 1988 Smokey's Fire Prevention Color-grams, quite nicely. (I do have an extra Color-grams if anybody needs one)

I have a Gaetti of the large cartoon, but not the whole panel that includes the B/W card. Does it look similar? Are you willing to violate the book for a potential trade or purchase? :unsure:

Added an odd variation recently. It’s an uncut 1992 Ballstreet Volume 2 panel. What makes this one odd, is it’s a matte finish instead of a glossy finish that most of these had. Here’s a side by side.

Here’s another material variation, this time from the new 2022 Topps Series 2 release:

Bat:

Jersey:

I’ve only seen bats associated with the numbered Relics & the All-Star Relics so far, perhaps there’s jersey relics throughout?

I found the all star jersey material variation to pair with the bat material.

Pleasantly surprised to add the 1991 Score Promo. Reduces the number of Beckett listed Puckett cards from 1983-1998 that I need to 10.

Based on the info I had, this Puckett card hadn't surfaced on eBay in about five years, and it actually sold for ~$50 more at that time. The George Brett sold on the same day this year sold for about $100 more, which I also found surprising. Could be this is a tougher-to-find 1990s card that collectors don't find too exciting?

That is badass. Congrats. Those Score/Sportflix promos from the late 80's and early 90's are so cool.

There are a lot of post-career Puckett cards that don’t interest me, but I’ve always liked the look of the 2004 Donruss Classics Legendary cards. I believe I now have all but two of them.

In search of a Legendary Hats /50 if anybody has an extra.

A very old checklist I have also suggests that the following exists. “2004 Donruss Classics Legendary Jerseys Game Used Jersey – Prime.” Can anyone confirm, and/or do we know what it is numbered to? Baseballcardpedia lists Puckett simply under “Prime.”

Thanks!

Love early/mid 2000 DLP brand sets. I have one hat /50, but will keep an eye out for another. I’m surprised that I need the square jersey card, I must have deleted it from my want list. I’ve never seen a prime, but I believe it probably exists. I have it numbered as a 1/1 on my want list.
