About this set: So, much like Uncle Rico, when I hop in the time machine back to 1993, I will be king. I remember going to card shows where if there was even one of these things around it was a big deal. What a great set and concept. The star, 40 HR (David Justice, Jeff Bagwell, Matt Williams, Gary Sheffield, Rafeal Palmeiro, Andre Dawson, Larry Walker, Jose Canseco, Frank Thomas, Ryne Sandberg, Juan Gonzalez, Jay Buhner, Andres Galaragga, Ken Caminiti, Mo Vaughn, George Bell, and Mike Piazza), 50 HR (Albert Belle, Brady Anderson, Cecil Fielder, Ken Griffey, Jr., and Luis Gonzalez), 60 HR (Sammy Sosa), 70 HR (Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire)and HOF (Rickey Henderson, Ozzie Smith, George Brett, Paul Molitor, Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs, Cal Ripken, Dennis Eckersley, Ryne Sandberg, Nolan Ryan, Eddie Murray, Carlton Fisk, Dave Winfield, Robin Yount, Andre Dawson, Roberto Alomar, Barry Larkin, Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, Craig Biggio, Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey, Jr. and Mike Piazza) list for this set is off the chart. Special thanks to Josh Ball and John Stevens for helping me get this set together through both sale and trade. Glad to answer emails about the set or trade offers.

06129300282LOU WHITAKER9806806 
06129300383BRYAN HARVEY989208920One of the cards denoted as SP by Beckett. Population report #'s would show that it is not any more rare than a number of cards in the set. I can't see a reason to place any premium on this card and it is relatively easy to obtain.
06129300484CARLOS GARCIA971137113As far as scarcity, it closely mimics the Brett Butler. Probably looking to pay a little more than most commons in this set.
06129300585SID FERNANDEZ992149214 
06129300686BRETT BUTLER9777777A little bit of a premium on this card. It is not impossible to come by, but there is usually strong interest when it appears on Ebay. The perceived scarcity and appeal of Brett Butler put this card on par with what you would normally pay for HOFers like Murray and Puckett. Collectors looking hard for Gem Mint copies.
06129300787SCOTT COOPER822502250Pop #'s are real low on Scott Cooper but really doesn't command much of a premium.

061293010810CURT SCHILLING9443443Hugely underrated card. Potential HOFer and Top 5 lowest pop # in the set.

061293049849MITCH WILLIAMS965146514 
061293050850HAROLD REYNOLDS835493549A popular card in this set with relatively low pop report #'s. Sells on par with Willie Greene and is a solid bet to run at least $125.
061293051851BRIAN HARPER828702870The availability of this card has varied widely in the time I've followed this set. One of the cards ending in "1" that are believed to be scarce. The # of Harpers graded would indicate it is basically on par with most of the set. Patience will payoff as far as obtaining one at a reasonable price.

061293058858CHARLES NAGY820852085In my experience a somewhat uncommon common, but it sells on par with most commons in the set. Pop reports will show it on par with Brian Harper in terms of availibilty.
061293059859WALLY JOYNER976117611 
061293060860CHARLIE HAYES7465465One of the real toughies in the set. Pop report confirms the rarity vs. other cards. Usually sells at a real premium $150-$250. Not quite as impossible as some others though.

061293070870PAUL MOLITOR9713713 
061293071871BRADY ANDERSON830403040Brady is one of the most underrated cards in the set. Pop reports show it to be more rare than almost any card in the set, yet it sells for a fraction of the price of other "rare" commons. Also hard to find in 9.

0612931078107NOLAN RYAN 9OC32953295The toughest "star" to come by. Ryan remains a hobby icon and this card is the keystone of the set. Not sure how Ripken got the 10 weighting for the Registry. They should both be 10. Take any oppurtunity you can to scoop this up at a reasonable price. Condition sensitive to centering. Centered copies bring a big premium.

0612931248124JAY BUHNER827632763Tough card to come by. The cards ending in "4" following the All Stars in the set center are all scarce or perceived scarce. Buhner is on the more plentiful side and usually sells on par with Harold Reynolds.

0612931448144ORESTES DESTRADE9OC982982Top 5 Toughie. No one has yet been able to obtain a 10 so collector demand is sky high for good looking raw copies. There are many cards with similar pop #'s though. Expect to pay a bit for this card.
0612931458145JOSE GUZMAN9716716Interestingly this card brings no premium but has one of the lowest pop #'s in the set.

0612931548154RANDY JOHNSON9658658This future HOFer's card is fairly popular and ends in "4" and commands a price worthy of the Big Unit. Pop #'s indicate a healthy supply so don't get carried away.

0612931748174JIMMY KEY833503350ABSOLUTE TOUGHEST or at least a dead tie with Orel Hershiser. Pop report confirms that these 2 are tied for rarest with only 43 of each having been submitted. Collectors actively try to keep these off of Ebay. Expect any auction that comes up with this card to end early. Good luck.
