The only copy graded PSA 10 Gem mint! Thanks in large part to its invention of the Precious Metal Gems cards in 1997, the Metals Universe brand has become synonymous with the hobby's very best inserts. In addition to their ultra limited and extraordinarily expensive PMG cards, however, Metal Universe produced some of the most creative and visually alluring non-serial numbered inserts of the period. A case in point can be made with the offered 1998 Metal Universe Boyz With The Wood insert card, featuring New York Yankee shortstop and defending World Series Champion Derek Jeter. Interestingly, the card could be kept as-is, showing a red hot flame on front, or it could be folded and reconstructed to show Jeter batting before a regal purple flame. As any lay person can plainly see, unaltered cards like this offered PSA 10 show a significant although uniform amount of edge wear on back, which was the norm for many Metal Universe insert sets, including the PMGs. Bottom line, don't expect to encounter another gem mint copy of this card anytime soon, if ever again at all.
