1993 Emmitt Smith attracts attention

This gem, another card I hadn’t seen before this week, sold for $107.51 on eBay this week.

It’s the 1993 Emmitt Smith Profiles card 2/9. Although it doesn’t look like a usual 2/9 card, it is a shot of Emmitt with his letter jacket from Escambia High School, in Florida. My guess is it’s as close as he would let them get to a picture from his childhood. But that’s just a guess.

The card received 26 bids, not including mine. My high was going to be $50, but it got way past that. So I had to back out. But that’s two of the nine Emmitt cards I’ve seen autographed. Still looking for the rest.


Haven’t seen this Franco Harris before

This 1993 Pro Line Profiles Franco Harris card sold for $33.85 on eBay not too long ago. It’s No. 6 of 9.

Nothing exceptional about this post, other than pointing out that I hadn’t seen this card before.

Carry on.

An Emmitt Smith card I haven’t seen before

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this card. It’s the 1993 Emmitt Smith Pro Line Portraits 7/9 card. This scan was posted on collector Jayson Morand’s website.

No big revelation here. I had not seen any of the 1993 Emmitt cards signed and certified before, and I just wanted to share.

Something else verified and on the list.
