I'm highly considering selling all my Donruss Crusades, is there still an interest in such a set? ;)

Where do you get these great cards?
Bagwell hit eBay and Ryan [MENTION=8906]RStadlerASU22[/MENTION] helped me to get in-touch with Jay for the Big Mac. The other 8 have been on eBay (1998-2013). Via eBay I have only missed Ellis, Piazza, and Maddux; the other know cards I have never even seen a scan.

Nice! I'd kill for one of those. Find it on ebay?
Yup - TNT had it. I was concerned only because I had ordered from them a few weeks earlier and the item still had not arrived. Turned out the prior package was in a fire and was sent away to a sort facility to try and figure out where the item went because the entire package was burned, address and all. Thankfully - they had a packing slip in there and the card was almost entirely intact (small char on the upper corner and edge). It was also a card (hockey) that I had been searching for since 1998!!

I am not 100% positive if it was the first time, but 2005 Donruss DK gave away full sets of plates. I want to say it was in the Challenge sets. The base parallel redemption set was embossed with the word "Challenge" and as a bonus, each set also received a random set of 4 plates, so those are probably the easiest plate sets to find to this day. Not sure if full plate sets ever were offered as a group before or since.

Of course, I missed my set partially because I was scaling back my spending then, but also I was proving a point that I regret to this day by backing off on the set and letting a rival win. I was tired of driving prices way up because two of us would bid crazy to win these stupid cards. I believe the entire set only went for $120 or so!! Of course it still happens to this day. Of course, after a small run of little competition, I have to be one of the guys who now has nearly continuous insane competition for my player cards. I can't hardly win most lower print run cards now, let alone get a reasonable price when I do. Years down the road, we all will probably regret our passion for some of these cards when nobody will want to pay even a fraction of what we paid.

Does anyone know if either of the following Mattingly promo cards actually exists. I have heard about their existance, but have never actually seen one available for sale:

1990 Sportsflics Promo #150 (career and '89 stats left off)
1993 Pinnacle Cooperstown Promo

Thank you

The Cooperstown Promo 100% exists and I've seen it sell on more than one occasion, but I still don't own one. On the Sportsflics, I would guess in my best judgment, it exists, but so few people know of the 1990 Sportsflics promos, that may be a tough one to 100% confirm. The promo set itself, definitely exists, and I own a Will Clark, 1 scrub (Bedrosian), and have seen a small handful of other players over the years, so theoretically, a Mattingly is probably out there, but if a Mattingly sold, I missed it, and I search for them very regularly, both on active listings and completed listings. 1990 Score Promos are hard enough to come by and I put the Sportsflics far above them, as 1 of the rarest, if not the rarest promo ever made.
