Another Flair Showcase Mailday!
Like I previously mentioned here, I’ve been working on the Row 0 set from 1998 Flair Showcase (for over a year now) and the one man who has helped my set progress more than anyone has been a collector by the name of John Walsh. Once again, John has hooked me up with quite a few of the toughies from the set. For those that don’t know, there are only 250 possible Row 0 sets! I described the fracturing of the set/print runs in this earlier post. The cards I received this time were:
10. Chipper Jones
12. Todd Helton
14. Derek Jeter
17. Mike Piazza
19. Tony Gwynn
24. Mo Vaughn
38. Jeff Bagwell
59. Hideo Nomo
All of these cards are serially numbered to 250 with the exception of the Jeff Bagwell and Hideo Nomo cards, which are numbered to 500. I’m very happy to get these cards off the wantlist, especially the Hideo Nomo (we all know how much rare old inserts of him can go for)! I am now at 110 Row 0 cards, just 10 away from the set! Thanks again John!

You’ve made great progress on that set!
Which 10 do you still need?
Very cool cards. Flair Showcase has always been one of my favorite sets.
The ten I need are: Travis Lee, Frank Thomas, Ben Grieve, Nomar Garciaparra, Mark McGwire, Livan Hernandez, Scott Rolen, Jason Dickson, Ricky Ledee, and Darin Erstad. They’re all numbered to 250, but I should be to knock half of those out soon, including the VERY hard to find Ledee card.
