Default 1994 Miami Huricanes Bumble Bee Set With Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.....

I have been looking for this set for a few months and just got this in the mail today.

Unfortunately some of the cards are damaged and the Dwayne Johnson has a a surface issue. It is not a full crease but you can see it starts right under the corner of the Hurricanes logo.

The other key cards in the set are Ray Lewis, Warren Sapp and Dennis Erickson.


I was hoping for a better Dwayne Johnson card and will just keep looking.


This came as a full sheet and I took it apart and here are the scans of the key cards.

Yes I realize he has quite a few cards. The question was is this his only football card and I believe that to be the case.

Go figure, The Rock doesn't wrestle for over 10 years, wins the belt at pay-per-view, and all of a sudden his college card is a $1,000 card.

I missed out on that one.

This card raw is not even close to that price. I paid $300 for the set.

If a Dwayne Johnson in high grade from PSA ever surfaced it will blow some minds what it brings though.

I won't be sending this card in due to the surface issue but I do plan to get the Ray Lewis graded and see what it brings on the open market at some point.

You can ask as much as you want for anything in life.

I sent him an offer and his counter is much lower then the asking price.

This card though is going to be a monster and will never be cheap again.

There are only three cards graded from this set in total between PSA and BGS at this time.

How were these distributed? I assumed they are out of a magazine but now that I see the full sheet from the above auction, it is obviously much larger.

I think it was a college give-a-way, as most uncut sheets like these are, but I could be wrong.

My understanding is it was an Orange Bowl give away.

I just read that in the listing from this first set I bought.

Someone posted several dozen of these sheets for sale on this site or HK a few years ago.

Sometime you can get lucky with some of the college sets.

Bill Goldberg's Bulldog card, and Stacy Keibler's Raven Cheerleader card come to mind.

I think the Bill Goldberg is awesome too. These two examples are at PSA right now.

It appears this card is much more easily found then the Dwayne Johnson card as there have been 16 examples graded by PSA vs. 1.

Assuming the one I just bought is strong enough to get graded I plan on sending it to PSA soon.

If you have a scan of the Stacy Keibler card please post it to this thread. That sounds like an interesting card.

I did a Google search and found it. Very cool.

What kind of price range does this card sell for?

I haven't seen one in awhile. I think it used to be maybe $50+ or so (same with the Goldberg card). I'm sure both are well over $100, maybe quite a bit more for graded examples.

I recently purchased four complete sets of the 1994 Miami Hurricanes Bumble Bee set and one was signed by the entire team.

I also purchased a number of other Miami Hurricanes sets from the 90's and a few were signed too.

There were creases in the 1994 signed sheet and since I really purchased it for the Dwayne Johnson card I decided to break it apart.

Here are the scans of the Dwayne Johnson, Ray Lewis and Warren Sapp signed in 1994.

I also included scans of the other Dwayne Johnson cards. The hunt continues for this card in high grade.

I was blown away when the only high grade example of the Dwayne Johnson surfaced.

This card was graded nine years ago. I am very excited to get this card in hand.

I have never chased a tougher card and this is the only known mint copy.

This card is a real stunner. The Dwayne Johnson card is by far the most condition sensitive and hard to find card I have ever chased.

I am very pleased with this transaction.

I sold one on EBAY that was in rough shape a few weeks ago for $125. If I decide to sell anymore I will keep you in mind.

Thanks for the comment I think it is amazing too!
