Greetings Everyone!

I'm wondering if anyone out there is an "expert" on the Sportscaster series for all the variations that are out there and avaliable (or as much as possible). I know that some languages have cards that ARE NOT in the US versions. Beckett has the checklist for the majority of the US version (I assume complete).
As far as I know, there are different printing versions of A,B,C,D on the sets and some printed in Japan and some in Italy...for the US version.
Also, different sets/languages I know about are:
French (maybe 2 different sets?)

There is a great website for Sportscaster cards. Maybe the answer to your question can be found there:
ya...that's a really good site for the US versions! Great photos and such. But as for an Int'l checklist, doesn't help at all.
Another one is this:

But still, as for an individual checklist for each series, that's what I'm looking for and if anyone knows of more languages out there...

Personal Collection interest with Kresimir Cosic making an appearance on one or two of them, and Stein Erikson (skiing).
Well...this is what I have for card numbers so far:
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar:
USA #02-03
ITA #0721
FRA #31-01
FRA #31-01 (D)

Really thinking that (Beckett) needs to maybe think about updating this series with the different languages (if we can find card numbers) for players.
Wonder what there is out there for the Bird and Magic Johnson cards too...
