Trivia

  • Cards 800O and 800D of Pro Set Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year Emmitt Smith and Mark Carrier are in the design of the 1991 cards.
  • After initially setting out to name one Pro Set Rookie of the Year, Emmitt Smith and Mark Carrier were named co-winners of the award after the final round of voting done by five former NFL rookies of the year, Hugh McElhenny, Merlin Olsen, Gale Sayers, Lem Barney and Tony Dorsett, who selected the winners from a list of candidates determined by a national poll of 50 pro football writers, card collecting journalists, network sportscasters and NFL-related celebrities, ended in a virtual deadlock.
  • Cards #753-#780, plus a revised #134 of Andre Rison with a traded stripe, and #799 of Ronnie Lott's public service announcement were released as part of the Final Update set available through a mail-in offer by sending either 50 playbook points plus $2.00 shipping and handling, or $3.00 plus $2.00 for shipping and handling.
  • One of the five inserts (Santa Claus, Paul Tagliabue, Joe Robbie, SuperPro, and Payne Stewart) were inserted per 50 packs in Series II.
  • Card #338 of Eric Dickerson was pulled in early print runs because he had not yet signed a contract.

I remember this set well, and I'm replacing it and some others. My goal is to get all Pro Set cards. Getting product was Pro Set's goal. While most companies were concerned more with short printing and distributing primarily to dealers, Pro Set gave us a lot more product. The dealers didn't like it because they had to sell it "cheap"

I'm sorry they went out of business so quickly. They covered football and hockey like a blanket and gave us sets to be proud of.

thanks to Shane (ebay seller talyho-enterprise) for letting me post a picture of the 1989 Pro Set Error and Variations Set and the 1990 Pro Set Owners Edition Series 1 and 2 in the packaging section, both sets are extremely rare and are very high on my wish list, unfortunately their cost is also very high which cancels out any hope of getting them soon

When the company folded a few years back some of the sheets were sold out the back door...would a sheet of uncut cards be rare? i have a few sheets and was thinking of taking them to card show and try to get them autographed...if any thing they would be nice to frame...i am just finding a way to market them....i have few rare ones...lots of variations...mostly 1990 proset ..
