Love when a lot of cards produces some surprises...and some really nice cards too.
We have 20 more additions to the 1994 Flair set build. The cards get more and more beautiful every time I see them. The overlay of pictures on the front make a pretty collage.
Sure, we don't get big write ups on the back, but we do get stats which are placed to work around fabulous background picture. Speaking of fabulous - getting a few more Jays is always okay.
Every time I see Pat now, I am reminded of a local baseball card ad on Kijiji (Canadian Craig's List) who is still - and has been for over a year - selling 1,000 Bowman rookie cards of the man. I am tempted at time to buy it, but $75 for 1,000 of the same card just seems steep. Not sure how long it will sit around, but if I find something else to buy from the seller - might ask for a price drop to pick it up as well.
There were about 30 cards which came up that I don't need, and not going to get into those today, because the special cards that came, I mostly needed for the set build, but will need better copies as these are going straight to the error binder...
Look at those wonderful miscuts! More than just a sliver of a card, and not a half and half deal, it's plenty off to keep which still enjoying the main card. I know some people are put off by these cards and would just trash them, but I love their uniqueness. It's like loving an ugly breed of dog - sure, they may look different, but it's part of what makes them special!
I'd take a bunch of error miscuts like this any day!
I have a couple 94 OPC miscuts if you want them..ReplyDelete
I would absolutely take them off your hands!Delete
Eek! Those are really miscut, which is a shame because '94 Flair is such a sharp looking set.ReplyDelete
As a Hentgen collector, I have definitely seen the Hentgen rookie lot on kijiji. That's a crazy amount of a single card. Keep in mind that if you're OCD with VARs like I am sometimes, there are "E *", "E*" and "E**" variations so you'd have a chance at 3 "different" cards. Then again, sometimes I look at these variations and wish they never existed.ReplyDelete
Yes...I would be OCD enough for the Jays cards, any of them, to look at the minor variations like that.Delete
