Kerry's Cardboard:1997 Donruss Studio Stained Glass Stars

Today's Kerry Collins comes in hot!

1997 Donruss Studio, you know the oversized cards, randomly inserted a pretty slick looking insert called Stained Glass Stars into it's product.

The 24 card set included some of the biggest names in football at the time and looks just like a stained glass. But, it's acetate.

Kerry was on the checklist and I was the only bidder to bring this one home

Each of the 24 cards are limited to 1,000 each.

I previously got one of these before from Dennis from Too Many Verlanders of Michael Irvin so I already knew what I was getting when I bid on this.

Most of the higher names in this set can go for $25, so for me, a set chase is most likely out of question even though it would be fun and quite the good looking set. I would also question how to display/store such a set.

More Kerry's Cardboard coming up next week!

  1. Love those! I am chasing the slightly more affordable 'Gallery Heroes' sets from 97-2000 Topps Gallery baseball. The stained glass look is a lot of fun, and tickles my fetish for color!

  2. I don't have any of the 8x10 ones... but I own a couple of the standard size baseball cards. I just looked up to see how much a Favre would set me back. A little too rich for my blood.

    1. Yeah some of those hold good value still. I felt the same about Griffey

  3. I've never seen these before, and given everything that you said (especially the bit about the prices), I don't want to even look at the checklist, just in case there's someone on there that I think I need.
