  10. QUESTION 8: Is it a hologram card?

    Answer: no, and what a strange question.

  11. QUESTION 9: Is it a Fleer card?

    Answer: yes

    So far we have that it's a Fleer card, from before 1990, that it features a Chicago baseball team that is not the White Sox. and it's not a manager or a hologram card.

  12. Is it part of a base (regular) set?

  13. This may be in the rules which I dont feel like looking up, but...

    Is it the back of a card thats showing?

    ReplyDelete
  14. QUESTION 10: Is it part of a base (regular) set?

    Answer: yes. This card is part of a regular-issue Fleer major-release set (i.e. not some rinky-dink set stamped with the Fleer logo...it's from the regular major release for Fleer for its given year.)

  15. QUESTION 11: Is it the back of a card thats showing?

    Answer: no. There's nothing in the rules about card front or back, but this is the front of this particular card.

    Here's your hint. Question #4 asked if it is a Chicago team showing, presumably because it appears that the letters "A" and "G" are visible in the card (and they are in the middle of "ChicAGo." Those ARE the letters A & G, but they are directly in the middle of another word that has those letters, not Chicago. It was coincidence that this happens to be a Chicago card.

  17. QUESTION 12: Is the card 1989 Fleer Goose Gossage #425?

    Answer: Nope (nor is it any variation of that particular card.)

    Not sure why you guessed that one. Here is an image of that card.

  18. Is there more than one player depicted on the card? (By that I mean as the central subject of the card, rather than just some guy wandering around in the background?)

    ReplyDelete
  19. QUESTION 13: Is there more than one player depicted on the card?

    Answer: yes! Now we're getting somewhere!

    7 more guesses.

  21. "Is it a league leaders card?"

    That was already asked (see #3 above)

  22. Are there any Hall of Famers pictured on the card? a new question just to mix things up!

    ReplyDelete
  23. QUESTION 14: Are there any Hall of Famers pictured on the card?

    Answer: nobody on the card is currently in the HOF

    Since we seem to be having trouble with this, I'll mention that nobody pictured on the card is eligible for the HOF (except by Veterans Committee) however one guy on the card DID get multiple HOF votes at one point.

  26. It is???? Aaarrgh!!! That's one of the cards I considered and rejected. Man, I need to sharpen my skills. (And it's "skills" not "skillz." I'm not good enough at this yet to earn my "z.")

  27. I knew it was '88 Fleer. But that's all I knew. Glad I could boost things a long at least a tiny bit.
