Default 2 Boxes Sporkings Series E; nice 1/1 Ripken

Just got these today from my Black Friday purchase, first time ever busting any Sportkings, and I' say I did alright.

Box 1: Dick Vitale Mini, Rickey Henderson, Gino Bartali, Martina Navratilova Letter R
Hit: Paula Creamer Silver AUTO/Jersey (but I can't find this photo variation on ebay out of the last 7 listed)

Box 2: Ken Griffey Jr., Franco Harris, Paavo Nurmi, Steve Cauthen Letter S
Hit: Cal Ripken Jr. Sportkings Patch 1/1

Anyone know about the Creamer, the only ones I see on ebay have her swinging a club with her facing right. The one I pulled has her with no club but facing left. Is it just coincidence that all seven on ebay ended listings have her with the other photo variation, or did I pull a rarer version?

Also, how many total Sportkings Patches were in the entire print run? Is it just one per athlete, and if so, how many athletes were in this series?

Thanks for the look, any input is appreciated.

I would find mwheeler... he could answer your Creamer questions and help with a value on the Ripken.

I found Sportkings' website, I guess there are 48 of the SK Logo patches made, one for every athlete in the set. Apparently that equates to one in every 250 Boxes, and I got the best one in the set. Kinda' stoked about that!

I was just going to answer this for you.

It's a nice hit, but some would argue if it's the nicest one or not. Ripken Jr. has quite a following, but so does Henderson, and Griffey Jr. You might not believe me, but the Doyle Brunson and Man O'War will both probably outsell all the rest. Horses always sell very well, and Brunson is a different kind of legend.

I'd like to add the Ripken to my collection. I have most of these from all 5 SK releases A-E. Hopefully we can work something out.
