1997 Topps Screen Plays Baseball

Here a product I never heard about. Topps Screen Plays featuring 1 moving action card much like Sportflics. For $7 for a pop at card shop let's see what I got.

This is back on the tin showing checklist of who's in it. When I open the seal underneath the checklist its...

Chipper Jones which one of six players on premium series. I know I'm getting his card. On back of the checklist....

....a profile of Chipper Jones along with how to display the card. As for the card....

I have to peel it to see it. After peeling it I got this....

As for the action shown you via webcam.

Looks like it was poorly execute product. Didn't work for Sportflics at the time it didn't work for Topps.

I used to have a Paul Molitor that I actually traded recently. I thought these were neat - the cards are a little too scann-y/line-y but the idea was interesting.

I actually liked these a lot too. I'm in the same camp as Mooss!

I was always big on the odd ball stuff. I have one of these in my Thome collection.

I have three of these, Bagwell, Bonds and Thome. I like them a lot. Much nicer than Sportflics. They were pricey however. I've had trouble with the foam the cards were packed into. I had kept them in their packaging and the foam started to deteriorate and stick to the cards.

I have the Jim Thome and love it. Once of the coolest conversation pieces I have. Well, to me anyway. :-)

Any chance you would be willing to trade this away? If so please let me know. flywheels at yahoo dot com

Whoa. Seven bucks?! The whole set should be available for that these days for forgotten (but admittedly cool-in-person) product like this.
