Card Review: 7.8 (but really, just a middle finger to Leaf) Let's be straight about this, this is a 1990 Leaf. Literally. It's not a new card, not a reprint, it's twenty four years old. Leaf just put some new foil stamping on an old card. In the card collecting world that I grew up in, that makes a card less valuable, not more. For more on this money-grab of a set, read what I wrote about the "base" card by clicking this link. Once again, my OCD forced me to pay $2 for this card on ebay, plus $3 in shipping (I'd be looking to rip people off too if I paid $135 for a 12-card "box" of these). I didn't even like this set in 1990, and feel it has only gotten uglier over the decades.
This gold variation is only numbered to five. Very fancy. Now I have one. And if I'm being honest, I won't hesitate to buy the other four. Unless they go for the kind of insane prices the "Super Special" one of one went for. Then I will hesitate, and let the other Wallach collector in Texas pick it up.
Number of this card in my collection": 1*
*I also have 4 that have been stamped with numbers out of 20, and another 30 copies that are still in Mint Condition and haven't been defiled by Leaf stamping machines.
