1993 CLASSIC AUTOGRAPH PLAQUE

RAREST RC OF ALEX RODRIGUEZ+

This auction is for a 1993 Classic 4-Sport Autographed Plaque of 8 Cards. It includes Shaquille O'Neal, Manon Rheaume, Alex Rodriguez, Chris Webber, Alonzo Mourning, Drew Bledsoe, Garrison Hearst and Rick Mirer. This is one of 100 autograph plaques that were from an impossible-to-find redemption card from 1993 Classic 4-Sport. All of the autographed cards are #'d 103 out of whatever total number of that card were autographed by the player. This plaque is incredibly rare as most collectors have never seen one. Go find any pack of 1993 4-Sport and you'll read about the redemption on the back. As you know, t are still tons packs from that set still unopened today. Only a tiny percentage of the redemption cards that were inserted were ever redeemed as the redemption period ended very early. Even after the redemption, some collectors broke the cards up and sold them individually.

This item is even rarer for another reason. The original plan was to have the plaques be made up of each of the serial numbered cards from 1-100. After sending the cards to the players to have them autographed, t were 3 different numbered cards that were either not returned or were damaged. Classic chose to use serial numbered cards 1-103 and just skip the 3 problem numbers.
