I add some great and rare 1990s insert cards to my collection in today’s video episode. More specifically, I discuss the following cards:
- 1996 Flair Diamond Cuts, Greg Maddux
- 1997 Flair Showcase Diamond Cuts, Greg Maddux
- 1996 Select Certified Mirror Gold, Johnny Damon
- 1998 Flair Showcase Perfect 10, Scott Rolen
The 1998 Flair Showcase Perfect 10 insert set has a print run of only 10 cards, and as such, most search inquires lead to zero results. For this reason (and others discussed in the video), the aforementioned Scott Rolen card is now one of my favorite cards in my collection. It took me a couple of years to track this card down, and I am thrilled to have done so.
What card did you have to pursue for a long time before adding it to your collection?
