Default I've got a few

I just acquired over 300 of these babies to sell for a friend. I told him not to expect too much. Contact me if interested in any specific cards or the whole enchilada.

I've been slowly but surely going through my collection of these, making upgrades to my set and putting aside the extras. By the time I'm finished I will likely have somewhere in the neighborhood of about 1000 or so extras, including the biggies (Gretzky, Magic, Bird), and most of them in good shape. Once I'm done I'll post here and see if anyone is interested in nabbing some of the extras, though the set upgrade process is going to take a while, perhaps until the summer.

I just acquired a large lot of these and I am in the process of sorting them. As I sort, I have noticed some say printed in Italy and others Printed in Japan. Was wondering if building the sets does it make a difference to mix them? I have also noticed some number variations. Is there a way to know if any variations are rarer than others.

Thanks

If anyone has any clear Garvey variations they are willing to part with, please let me know. I have 2-3 different of each of the 2 cards he is featured on (his and the ASG card with Morgan), but there may be a few other versions out there i don't have. I know none of mine say printed in Japan, for example.

What Number is Garvey? It will be easier for me to find him that way.

It all depends on what you mean by 'set'. Some likely will not care if they have a Japan or Italy card or whether they have the Lausanne or Geneva variation of a particular card or an 'A' or 'B' variation...but then again, some will.

I just finished completing my set of 2184 cards in which are mixed all kinds of variations. I have enough of the variations available that I might consider building a master set but, of course, that's a toughie given that most cards sold online rarely feature the back of the card and that, of course, is what you need to see to determine which variation you have.

If you are finding number variations, you may have a lot which mixes the US version of the cards with those from the UK. The Atlas page linked below gives you an idea of which number prefix is associated with each set...

http://www.atlaspicturecards.com/Spo...ter_cards.html

As you might guess, the higher numbered series tend to be tougher to find...series 1-55 are the most readily available but also, in my experience, seem to be the series with the greatest number of variations. Series 80 and above tend to be the toughest but also appear to have the fewest number of variations.

Default Sportcaster Cards Help

I hate to dredge up such an old thread, but I found a collection of these at an estate sale. Most of the packages are unopened, so I can only see the card on the front and back of each. Does anyone know of a listing somewhere that will tell me what cards are in each pack? Each pack has a slip of paper enclosed with information that will say something like "Sports Cards TM Control No. 03 005 87". I notice the last card in the pack will have the same control number at the bottom and be a -24. So I assume the packs go by these control numbers. Each pack has a mix of sports, so it's hard to guess what might be in any package in particular. Any experts out there for these cards? I'm hoping someone might have created an Excel spreadsheet with a list of the card numbers/pack listing.

Along with the cards in packs, there were several Sportcaster Digest mini magazines. I have never seen these. They included No. 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, and 15.

The group included the following unopened packs (All say "Printed In Italy"):

Awesome find and I love to see old threads dredged up, especially if they are on interesting, yet more obscure subjects.

One of the Almanacs/Big Books (Beckett or Krause) had them listed by series. I will take a look and see if I can find it.

There are two guys on ebay who sell a ton of sportscasters maybe they can help. One is pepinski (he may have a number after his name if you can't find him let me know) and one is oddballsteve. It's an amazing and very complex group of cards, an absolute must for collectors of rookie cards in the non-major sports.
