Marilyn Monroe I
Sports Time - 1993

Notes: Thanks much to Jason Fox and Ralph & Beth Anderson for updates! 
Quite a few items, including proof sheets and unique items out of the manufac-
turing process, have reached the aftermarket after Sports Time ceased operations. 
Some of these items are similar to other items that were made available to the 
"Sports Time Collectors Club" as mail-in offers. Items that seem to have been 
available only to Club members are grouped with Promo Items.

But Mary reports that there also are a considerable number of knock-off or 
unfinished uncut sheets circulating, potentially hurting the market for "genuine" 
sheets that were meant for distribution to the public. Most of these sheets lack 
the gold signature and are UV-coated on only one side. Thanks to Darrell Warner 
for the update!

Box: 36 packs of 7 cards.
Common sets: approx. 2.49 per box if collation were perfect.
