Just an FYI there is a Facebook group dedicated to these releases. You may have luck there.
Nice pickup. I've still never seen the Jeff Fryes from 1999 and 2000.A few things to post in here, some nice things but this is one that I was crazy excited for when I saw it. Player/team collectors know what a huge pain these types of things are to track down years later. Just about every year the red Sox have a team 4x6 set released, it's usually a charity fund raiser type of thing. Tim Wakefield was included in four seasons, after hardcore collecting him for a decade I finally found the last one I need. I'm not sure why but the others I have seen multiple times. This is only the second one of this card I've seen.

I love that set, might be....might be my favorite auto of his, was also his first certified
Yeah, the design reminds of of an insert or maybe a subset from late 90s early 2000s, it's basic but it stands out a bit, of course I wish it was on card but the sticker doesn't make it awfulI like that Topps Baseball Stars design. Picked up a couple Sutton (Black and Red borders).
This totally reminds me of that "I am better than your kids" email where the guy critiques seriously crappy children's art. Topps needs to do better...Been a bit since I added anything, money is tight. Wakefield made it into 22 Diamond Kings, decent looking card....another sticker, I haven't added anything from that yet. I was pretty excited to see he made it into the Topps Spotlight set...I was less excited when I saw the card. The base is pictured below. I'm not trying to knock the artist...but... seriously???

When I saw it on eBay I thought, maybe it looks better in person....nah, this isn't one of those cards. I have a parallel already coming in, I won't be looking to complete the run on this.
