“ I think we have a new record for physically heaviest card of the day! Would be nice to see it without the coating over his face, though.An otherwise excellent scan. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ These were made of metal/steel and were pretty heavy for card. ” -carthage44

“ I don't know why there is "protective film", but still ok ” -Thomas555

“ grrrrrrr....I hate scans of cards with the protective film left on. How can you possibly enjoy the beauty of the card? ” -C2Cigars

“ Always leave the coating on. While the card is kind of dark, I like it. Nice card of a player I still admire, I don't care about all the drama of his last few years in baseball. ” -Doc Floyd

“ All kinds of NO for this kind of card. I don't know where to begin. I've never been a fan of the metal plate feel kind of cards this looks like it was going for. Not a fan of the "finest" protective film you have debate Shakespeare over "To peal or Not to peal, that is the question" Some people say they look better without the film. Some of them do but many of them are still just as ugly without the film. ” -captkirk42

“ I have one of these. Somewhere. Cool looking, I like it. But hard to find! ” -Joshua825

“ Remove protective film! ” -switzr1

“ What is the protective film? I am unfamiliar with this set and wasn't sure what was going on. ” -muskie027

Muskie02, The protective film is a thin layer of plastic on the card to prevent it from being scratched. You know, so it won't look ugly. Because nothing is more attractive on a card than the words "Remove protective film."

I agree with Billy - these cards are very heavy. If you hold like 30 in your hand, it's hard to believe you're holding actual "cards".

For Sosa's card, shouldn't it be "Leaf Preferred - Cork"?

I think his MEM cards have pieces of cork.wink


Someday my cards may double in value and then be worth half of what I paid for them.

Dislike the "32 of Seventy-Seven".  Don't mix and match.  All numbers or all words, not both.
