Rodney's Cardboard:1992 Wild Card 10-Stripe

 Being someone who didn't really get deep into collecting until 1995, my knowledge of products before that year are a little weak.

So, when I saw all of these "stripe" parallels all over my Rodney checklist it took some time to adjust to figuring out all of them.

But, after some research and some of the answers right on the card front, I think I have it all figured out. 


I know these were randomly inserted and the higher the stripe number, the tougher to find. I also see from the card front which levels and foil colors each one is. I had never noticed that before.
 
Nothing changed too much on each of the backs, it's the fronts that matter.

I am 100 and 20 stripe away from the complete rainbow.

I managed to find this one for under $2, I will take those deals all day long.

Thoughts on comments on this chase and if you have made a similar one welcomed in comments.

Rodney's Cardboard:1997 New Pinnacle Black Printing Plate

Today's card is my favorite Printing Plate in my Rodney Hampton collection.

Not because of the front,

 
But, because of the back. It is signed by Jerry Meyer Chairman of Pinnacle. This is the only time that I know of that printing plate was actually fully guaranteed like this. These are also very scarce to hunt down and Rodney makes only the second one in my collection. The other one is a card back of Yatil Green.

I can't imagine how many of these things that Meyer had to sign.

Thanks again to Wes for grabbing this one for me as well.

Comments on whether you own any of these plates welcomed in comments.

Rodney's Cardboard:1997 Stadium Club Yellow Printing Plate

  Well, now that I am past all of the hard to talk about Rodney Printing plates, I am moving onto two weeks of ones I can have a small discussion about.

Today's printing plate is actually recognized as one. This is from the 1997 Stadium Club set and features Rodney shoving Ray Lewis to the ground. I guarantee this is not something you saw very often when Lewis was on the field.

 
The back of the plate lets us know which one it is. I still have three others to chase. Who knows if they will ever show up.

Thanks again to Wes for this latest add. Quite a nice surprise for the collection.

Comments are always welcomed on these latest adds!

Rodney's Cardboard:1996 Collectors Edge Advantage Printing Plates (3 of them)




(there isn't a lot to say about these plates as I have many to post. They are 1/1's, they are legit as you can tell the use from the backing which is completely silver, they all came from one seller, and they all came to me via Wes who blogged for Area 40 blog. Thanks Wes!)

(side note, this is one front and two different back colors for this run. I am not sure if I have others as well. I will update when I check them)

Rodney's Cardboard:2023 Panini Absolute Historic Duals Red Ottis Anderson/Rodney Hampton Autograph /75

 Today marks the final run on the 2023 Absolute Historic Duals that I have so far. It's not too many and most of my focus has been on the bigger numbered cards as those fell cheaper.

Other than the 1/1, the /10 and the /25 have popped up once and both left my grasp. Hopefully they will re-appear. I have yet to see the Purple /5.

But, let's take a look at a card I have seen and own today :)

This card is the Red version which is numbered to 75. I guess you can consider this a team color parallel as well.

 
Back of the card is the usual Panini backing.

Here is the overall look at the chase so far. 

Historical Duals Black 1
Historical Duals Purple 5
Historical Duals Gold 10
Historical Duals Green 25
Historical Duals Blue 35
Historical Duals Orange 50
Historical Duals Red 75
Historical Duals 199

As I said above, had to focus on the easier ones first.

Stay tuned for new Rodney posts to come!

Rodney's Cardboard:2023 Panini Absolute Historic Duals Ottis Anderson/Rodney Hampton Autograph /35

 Today's Rodney Hampton is probably going to be my favorite of the chase, especially since the 1/1 is gone. It's a blue parallel which is team color match especially with their players jerseys on the card being blue as well.

The blue version is numbered to 35.

 
Back of the card is the usual Panini backing.

Here is the overall look at the chase. The 1/1 had already popped up and I missed it. But at least I can just chase what I can and hopefully someday the 1/1 will come back.

Historical Duals Black 1
Historical Duals Purple 5
Historical Duals Gold 10
Historical Duals Green 25
Historical Duals Blue 35
Historical Duals Orange 50
Historical Duals Red 75
Historical Duals 199

Stay tuned for a couple more of these!
