Remember That 1,200 Card Lot Of Andre Dawson That I Picked Up?? Check Out Some Interesting Things That I Found Inside…

Remember That 1,200 Card Lot Of Andre Dawson That I Picked Up??  Check Out Some Interesting Things That I Found Inside…

The organizing is done. 

The checklist is updated.

And the putting away is almost complete.

And as I started to go through my already large collection of Andre Dawson baseball cards to accommodate for the 1,200 new ones I have picked up, I found a few odd things that I wanted to share with you…

My process has a few OCD-esque elements – from the order of the cards, to the organization, to how I acknowledge unique cards versus doubles.  My process has worked well for me so far, and I have no desire to change how I get it done…

And with a keen eye, I ended up finding five more cards in this recently acquired lot of cards that I did not have logged into the official checklist that I maintain as new cards are obtained.

And all five of them are variations of cards I already owned…

Come see:

1994 Upper Deck Collector’s Choice – base card and Silver autographed version

1994 Stadium Club ‘Tale Of Two Players’ – Red logo in upper-right corner, Gold logo in upper-right corner, Red logo in lower-center

1991 Donruss – base card and border design variation

1991 Donruss All-Star – base card and border design variation

Kind of odd that I did not notice these cards were out there prior to obtaining this lot and having to go through everything I owned of ‘The Hawk’.

Of the five newly added cards to my checklist, I am most puzzled by the 1991 Donruss border variation cards – Does anybody know more about these and why there are two different versions of the border designs???

Thanks for reading!

  1. It looks like the 1991 Donruss border variations are wax / factory set.

    See: http://www.oddball-mall.com/faq.htm#4

    Never knew that. Now I’m going to have to look at my Hershisers.

    Darn those pesky no good variations.

  2. Did you end up with a bunch of Dawson as a Red Sox doubles? If wo care to take a look through my want list and see if I need any of them?

  3. They are indeed border variations. Be sure to look for Donruss border variations in the 88, 89, and 90 sets as well.
