Spring 2017 Major League Baseball "Set Registry Masters" Premium Auction
The 1998 Donruss Crusade inserts are among the most popular baseball insert cards ever produced. The cards were inserted throughout several different Donruss brands in 1998, and they could be found in one of three different super short-printed parallels--Green/250, Purple/100, and Red/25--all of which are color variations of the same striking design. Similar to Topps Refractor cards, the Donruss Crusade cards employ a holographic surface that shimmers with different colors when reflected at different angles under light. In the background is a medieval-themed stamp or seal that floats in three dimensions on the holographic surface of the card, and vertically along the right are the words "Call to Arms" in a medieval font. The cards are of course a play on the Catholic Crusades of the Middle Ages, and their odd juxtaposition of medieval times with flashy modern printing technology has endeared them to more collectors and fanatics than perhaps any other insert set of the entire 1990s decade. One of the key players of the set, offered here is the coveted Red parallel of the popular career Atlanta Braves player who will almost certainly be the game's next Hall of Fame inductee, Chipper Jones, serial-numbered 03/25 on back and recently graded PSA 10 Gem Mint on behalf of our consignor as a part of our popular Cost-Free Grading program . A "Holy Grail" grail if ever there was one, don't miss this rare opportunity to finally call this mythical card your own.
