Inconsequential Variations (Part the First): 1990 CMC Pre-Rookie #441 Bill McGuire

     Welcome back, everyone, as it is time, once again, for the introductory installment of everyone's favorite recurring series where we explore the unknown depths of the obscure backwater that is inconsequential variations amongst baseball cards.

     Picking up where we left off last week, let's begin with a card from CMC's 1990.  For all you hardcore Bill McGuire collectors, you might want to have a look through your 5000 count box of McGuire duplicates and see if you have this hidden gem.  On the left, we see the typical #441, flawless in every detail.  On the right, just above the team name, a lovely flock of yellow dots.

Here's a closer look.

The 1990 CMC Pre-Rookie set is a gift that just keeps on giving, year after year.  You're welcome.


  1. Looks like UFO's. "There were these yellow lights and they were flying in a triangle formation and then they separated and flew off faster than anything I've ever seen before and then they just disappeared."

    1. That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw it. I've seen them in the sky before, never on a card. Maybe they were actually in the sky in the photo, and they're bleeding through the border!
