Default The "Prize" of my collection... Roberto Alomar

This card was a McDonalds give away back in the day. For anyone who knows about these, knows they are hard to find. Alomar was my hero growing up, and although I played shortstop my lucky number was, and still is to this day #12. So without further ado, here is my favorite baseball card

Awesome. I remember the really long NFL ones. I have a few, but they are in really bad shape.

I wish that I saved so many things/took better care when I was younger. I keep finding these awesome things in horrible condition from my childhood.

Looks like a set of 6 + the auto'd card, for 7 total cards.

Here's an old listing with scans:

They sell for around $200 as they are ridicukously hard to find... I have seen one sell for $350 on ebay and $400 at a show. Took me forever to land one.
