THAT was in the ol' archive at the parents house? Plus all those other cards you mentioned?

I'm gonna have to find a way to get myself invited over to their house for tea sometime :)

Hey Guys,

Recently did some cleaning up at the parents house and found a card that I know will mean a lot to hardcore Griffey/90’s Insert/1of1/unique card collectors. I discovered the Griffey masterpiece 1/1 from the 1999 Fleer Mystique set. It was the first card of 160 players to have a 1/1 (GRIFFEY WAS#1 of #160). The card has been kept in the cold and dark for 22 years and seriously seems to be a 9+ potential 10. Wait times for grading seem insane and the risk of the card in the mail has me questioning whether to grade it at all. Going to post a picture here and see what kind of interest it drums up. Thanks to any who send this over to Griffey or unique collectors! Email is [email protected]

“Crossed off” 4 cards in one, as I have been looking for the #’d /100, /75, /50 and the /25 version (for some reason they were on my checklist) for 20 years, and after finding this I discovered each player only has ONE version and Gwynn was the purple #’d /25!! I’d imagine most of you already knew this, I just wasn’t paying attention!

There is a Padres calendar like that, and I have a Mariners one too. Oh the fashion trends through the years...

That kicks ass. I would have guessed late 80's, but I suppose the early 90's weren't that different. Definitely very much of its era. And the Maddux...he looks like a choir boy. Completely belies the dirty - and very funny - sumbitch that he actually was.

Not a card, but this 1991 Cubs Calendar I found is the most 90's thing ever. That Greg Maddux photo is so Maddux. Best 99 cent purchase in a long time!

Hi everybody. Posting here after a long and complicated battle with consigners and multiple attempts at grading this card. Long story short my BIG consignment company I hired to sell this 1/1 masterpiece failed to get it graded by both PSA and Beckett so I feared the worst. After calling in a favor and having a very credible member of the industry submit this card for me it finally came back. I’m fielding all offers right now (already have a 9 and 10k offer) but I’m being transparent and letting everyone know that I’m shopping around offers right now. I think a private sale may be best for the card and this community. Let me or anyone else interested know. Thanks! Feel free to email at [email protected]

Let me guess...you only accept payment by "friends & family" or Bitcoin.
