Josh, I have the inverse of that 1991 MSA Jimmy Dean. Mine has an upside-down Kevin Mitchell front w/ Kirby Puckett back. I'm actually searching for the one you have, so please let me know if anyone has it available.

Added three new Puckett's today, it's probably been at least 10 years since I added that many at once (but then again, I haven't added much over the past decade).
1993 Colla Collection All-Stars
1987 Topps Sticker Hardbacks #146 & #274 . Never knew they existed before.
According to BaseballCardPedia:
This would be the final year Panini produced Topps and OPC's sticker set, as they would acquire an MLB/MLBPA license of their own for 1988. As a result, a rather rare "hardback" variation of this set exists. Similar to the stickers Topps would begin producing in 1988, the hardbacks were printed using a thicker cardstock rather than the thinner paper stock Panini used. It is believed that the hardbacks were a test issue.
Found them in a 12/$1 box.

Glad I got up really early on Sunday morning for a bike ride. I landed a 1995 Leaf Statistical Standout Promo for $7.50 delivered thanks to the early alarm.





Also found a 2017 Diamond Kings Heritage Collection Blue Foil /25 for $8.00 delivered on Sportlots. I'm a sucker for blue foil. Looks sharpe.

More items from "I was digging through stuff..."

Puckett collectors, what are your favorite magazine/program covers?

Three of my favorites...





Matthew, you have two of my favorites already pictured with the fishing themed one being #1 and the Sports Illustrated Kids being #2 . I need to see if I ever picked up one of those Mpls St Paul magazines. I shifted my Puckett collection many years ago to primarily only focus on his cards or card like items. Thanks for sharing those! Jeremy

Great prices for a pair of awesome cards. I still need to find a '16 /25 blue Heritage Collection for my collection. I haven't seen too many of them listed on eBay yet. Hopefully, I'll be able to snag one.

I checked off two more 2004 Leaf Exhibits from my want list recently. I'm down to only needing 13 more to complete the run (5 cards from series one and 8 from series two). Here's the new additions:

1921AML - Series One

1939-46BOLR - Series One

Please let me know if you have any of the 13 that I need to complete the run.

I find it funny that sometimes there are large stretches in which it is difficult to find cards that probably aren't that difficult to find, and then when it rains, it pours.

Since I got back into this two years ago one of my needs was the 1992 Score/Pinnacle promo panel with Puckett.

Couldn't find it anywhere.

Then one was on eBay in the last 6 months, but only very briefly and I didn't find out until after the fact because "Puckett" wasn't in the listing so I missed it.

This one was on COMC a couple of months ago, it arrived Monday, the same day that one sold within 12 hours on eBay. Go figure.

I always like the more unique stuff. Plus, 3/4 HOFers on here. Pleased to cross off one that probably shouldn't have been too difficult to find.

Does anyone have any information on this item? It's a small ceramic tile that of course has Puckett's '85 Topps Rookie pictured on the front. It's a standard thickness for ceramic tile and has THAICERA, 34, THAILAND and some other letters on the back which are upside down when the front image is right side up. I'm not sure if it's homemade or if Topps had them printed for something... I haven't seen one before and would love to know more about it.
