I stumbled upon this site a couple of years ago and then lost track of it, finding it again last year. I haven't seen anyone mention it here so check it out:

That one used to be harder to find. Unopened packs went for $20-25 back in the 2000's. A lot of packs appeared on the market after around 2010. Today, it's easy to find for $2-3/pack or as a set of singles.

Yeah, it's a good set to have. There was a story that Pro Set was going to make a regular set but MLB didn't like that idea so it never happened.

I've seen this Flopps promo set mentioned a couple times recently and see that no one has brought up the 6th card, the "Dave Porker" scratch'n'sniff card. Surely it can't be that uncommon? Anyway, here's a scan for those who may not have seen it:

I've seen that card for sale but was suspicious of it for some reason. I did hear it was unreleased. Have you known about this card for a long time? It isn't listed in PCE2008.

I can't say for sure when I picked them up...I'm guessing at least 10 years ago?

None of the Flopps cards were released because the company was enjoined from doing so after MLB sued Pro Set and won.
The "Dave Porker" card is quite scarce. It was supposed to be a chase card for the set that never was. It surfaced only after Pro Set closed its doors. Originally, the Bankruptcy Trustee for Pro Set was the only one who had these. Since Pro Set had almost no assets to speak of, he told me that he was partly paid for his work in trading cards, a topic he knew nothing about. Afterwards, he sold off everything in a couple of months on Ebay in the late 1990s and sailed into the sunset.
