Cards From The Binder (Chapter 10)

Something in my house is white and fat....

I'm not a binder kind of guy, but I do have one that houses a veritable potpourri of cards and other things that have absolutely no relation to each other. So every now and then I feature a few cards from this mess, which usually translates into a post with very few views.

I'm not a comic book collector, but this card was included in the "Death of Superman" comic book that was released in 1992.

I bought two to open and one to keep just in case, you know in case it became valuable (which it didn't).

This is a 1995 Fleer Metal Trent Dilfer. Like many of the cards in this binder, I can't remember how I acquired it. I was buying any sportscard magazines I could find and this was probably included in one of them.

They didn't call this a promo card, they called it a sample card...hence the S-1 on the back.

The next "sample" card from 95-96 Fleer Metal was definitely from a magazine, I just can't remember which one.

I don't think you can tell from the scans, but the left side and bottom of the card have perforated edges. If my memory serves me correctly (and we all know how that goes), there were three other cards attached to this one.

I actually liked Collector's Edge football back in the day. This was one of four promo cards released (the other three were Ronnie Lott, Jim Everett and Bernie Kosar).

I think this may have come out of a Tuff Stuff magazine. Anybody remember that one? I've read it's now called Sports Collectors Monthly. I used to buy this magazine a lot back in the '90s. I liked the articles but their price guides were quite unrealistic. I remember not being able to give away Starting Lineup pieces they were listing for $50.
