Yeah, the ones sold on the QVC type late night show with the past owner of Classic, Scoreboard, Signature Rookies, Front Row, etc...

Came on wood plaques where the screws holding the plastic went right through the photo too... but the photos were not even printed on photo paper, to look older.

Ken Goldin was his name
