I was excited, as I LOVED the Football's Finest set and always wished Marino was included in the set. I was disappointed though as he stated it was a rumored card and that less than 10 exist. The other collector said he saw a picture of one once, but did not have a picture any longer. I more or less wrote it off, until one day I saw one on eBay. I placed a huge bid in and won it for $42. I couldn't wait to get the card in! I was puzzled as it did not feature the team logo. Nor did it say Topps on the front, so I waited to get the card in to see the same back as the factory set. Only... this is what I saw...

Although cool, I thought maybe I bought one of those unlicensed cards from the mid-90s.I searched "Signs & Glassworks Inc." to no avail. I kept staring at the front of the card. The only other difference was the patent number. I grabbed other 'Chrome' technology cards, the same patent. I looked up the patent number, and Signs & Glassworks, Inc. was involved in the original patent. Along with consulting some of my older dealer friends, I came to the conclusion that this technology was developed by S&G. Topps is the one that bought it and rushed to get the product out using the same original design for the set. I believe they used this Marino card as a Sample to sell to the technology to the card companies. If this is all true, its by far the coolest, most historical card I have in my collection. The first Chrome card.

That is so cool. Amazing find there.
