Comments: Finding a high-end 1990 Donruss Schilling has been a struggle. When I decided to go with this issue for Schilling I picked out the best example from my own stash of 1990s baseball cards collected during my teenage years. I submitted it to PSA and it received a NM-MT grade. Graded examples are just not offered since I started searching for one in early 2011. I wanted to uprade the PSA 8 and purchased a full wax box of 1990 Donruss via eBay in April, 2011 for $10 including S&H. I opened pack after pack and would you believe, not a single Schilling card - no kidding. After looking through the other cards I learned a large percentage of them have rough edges or dinged corners. Some collecting friends informed me picking up a factory set would be my best bet. At the 2011 National Chicago I looked for a set - not the hottest item mind you. And, on Sunday as I was exiting the show I found one by absolute accident. At the hotel, I opened the set and found the Schilling card in sequence. Unfortunately, one of the corners is slightly white. It's not a good submission candidate. On August 21, 2011 I found an eBay auction where the seller advertised an example as MINT straight from a factory set. I should receive it in a few days - we'll see if it's the upgrade I've been looking for.
