1988-89 Star Gold Edition - Hershiser

Here's a player set from the very confusing Star series of the late 1980s into the early 1990s.

In 1988-1989 they produced Star, Star Promos, Ad Cards, Gold Edition, Nova Edition, Platinum Edition, Platinum, Silver Edition, '88 Promos and '88.

These are cards #111-120 of the Gold Edition. 1500 of each of the Gold Editions were printed. The cards are not numbered, but the baggie that they came in is. My set is #0210. The last card, Personal Data, although listed on the card as 110, is an uncorrected error. The card is actually numbered 120.

Part of the confusion come into play with the checklist. Shouldn't they be listed as:
111 - Checklist
112 - Minor League Stats

I won them on ebay for 99 cents. I had bid on another set of these but was outbid at about $7.00. Sometimes patience is the best thing. Or the cheapest.

Yes, this is two Orel Hershiser centered posts in a row. There will be more as I continue to scan and organize.

Yes, this is a 'long' post for me. It is in homage to Night Owl. But he writes better than I do. They say a picture is worth a ... I'm letting the cards talk for me.

Yes, I posted them to Zistle.

  1. Wow, that's a lot of Hershiser. I actually like those cards quite a bit.
