Superior Galleries Collection Prototype 1992 - Sterling Cards Inc.
Page 146 of the 2008 PCE has an entry for a Superior Galleries Collection prototype card being one of 20,000 promoting a sports memorabilia auction house. Unfortunately no image is available

I have a card from the same company promoting either the same or a similar auction for July 8 & 10 1992. This card is numbered 2 on the back in the top right hand corner and is one of 70,000. See images below, does anyone have a copy of the card mentioned in the 2008 PCE to compare it against?

John, there are definitely 2 in the set.

As noted, this is what the 2 look like:


Superior Collection (1992) Sterling Cards Inc. Set number n.k.; source n.k.; photo; marked "Promotional Card" on back; back is also serial-numbered out of 70,000; back also says "The National Sports Collectors Convention Auction" and provides dates "July 8 & 10, 1992 in Atlanta, GA"; promotes a sports memorabilia auction.
1; card front shows a Boston jersey, a baseball bat, a trophy, etc.
2; card front shows a Harlem Globetrotters jersey, a Yankees jersey (Gehrig), an Olympic torch, a football, etc.


I can pull mine for you and send you a scan to post, if you need it.

David

many thanks and please can you send me a scan of the front and back of card 1.

Do you have the unnumbered card that is referred to in PCE? This would make the set 3 cards two numbered and 1 unnumbered.

regards

John

Looking at the card directly above, it doesn't match Todd's description of card #1. It doesn't show a Boston jersey, it doesn't mention the National and it's numbered out of 20,000 - not 70,000. It's hard to read but it's stamped/printed "1992 Prototype" diagonally in gray across the back. There must be two cards numbered 1.

Looking at Todd's list shown above I also have #3 on the list Gordie Howe's Game Worn Jersey'

I found an image of the front and back of the card Todd listed. It has the card number in black like the #2 card with both noting the National unlike the others with a black number within a white diamond and not noting the National so they might be considered a separate set.
