Unfinished Cup:1998 Playoff Contenders Leather

*takes a sip. gets ready for the first new post of the new month*

It's October and baseball is still on. But my focus is and always has been football. Not that I still don't root on the Yankees, but football is always my focus.

Which is why looking at all of my set needs, most are football related.

And speaking of those needs, here we are with a NEW Unfinished Cup.

*takes a sip*

Today's set is from the 1998 Contenders product which featured a variety of different base sets including, the base (with autographs), pennants and today's cards printed on leather.

Back in 1998, I was able to open a few packs of the product without a lot of success in pulling the top rookies of Peyton Manning and Randy Moss, but the leather football die cut cards really caught my eye and for years I wanted to chase the set. Now I am.
There are 100 cards in the set to chase. I have quite a few but still need quite a few more including the two big ones.

Here is what I have remaining,
18,20,21,23,30,31,33,35,37,48,52,53,69,70,71,72,73,74,78,80,81,82,84,85,86,87,89,90,91,93 and 99.

This set is at the top of the ones I want to complete, so I am hoping some of you out there will have some. If you do, please email me at

I hope everyone has a great Saturday and first day of October.

Thoughts on this set welcomed in comments.

  1. I always liked these cards. Best of luck with this set. I'm sure it'd look really cool in a binder.

  2. Never seen these before, but 100 of them seems intimidating. Might go after a few though as I love die cuts. Hope your cup won't be unfinished for long.

    1. It has been. That's why it has taken so long to complete lol


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
