I've never owned that card. I have a few 89 Fleer sets, but they're all the blackout version, I believe.

I love goofy cards, intentional or not.

My all-time favorite Chipper card is not his rookie 1991 Bowman, but his 92 Bowman:

I have been meaning to get one myself - will you let me know how much it sets you back when you find one? :-? ;-D


The unedited books for $15 and can be found for anywhere between $5 and $100 ( :-S ) by doing a Google search it comes up with some results. I'll do the work for you. I may take a trip to my favorite store and see if he has one first.

No doubt. When it comes to cards that are must haves for any serious collector, it ranks up there with the 89 UD Girffey as a must own.

Rick face..... Lolz

The whiteout version books for $120, it may be worth double checking...
