Trade Me Anything V #3

Jim from Garvey Cey Russell Lopes was kind enough to trade me anything for a couple of Dodgers. Let's see what he sent.

Man, that Hickey card deserves to be scanned. It's a little known fact that Donruss had actually planned a Diamond Kings card for Hickey's hair/mustache combo as the final card in the subset, but with the set already planned the company's higher-ups decided they didn't want to axe either the Terry Kennedy DK (#26) or the first regular base card (#27 Gary Roenicke). The four printing plates for the card are rumored to exist, but only the cyan plate has ever emerged, reportedly sold for $350.00 at a bowling alley card show held in Saratoga Springs, NY, in the early 1990s

Thanks, gcrl!
