Two Raves down, two to go

I'd love to collect all of the Tino Martinez Circa/Skybox Thunder Raves. They are hard to find, yet over the past few months, I've added a couple to my collection. I purchased two 1997 Raves, as I found one for a price I couldn't pass up.

If you collect a player from the late '90s, even if not a superstar, you might be surprised by what Raves sell for.
My second Rave comes from 1998. In true Circa/Skybox Thunder fashion, the card is loud and a bit all over the place. I didn't expect the font with the player's last name to be so shiny, but it has an awesome effect with the foil.

I still need 1996 and 1999, so I'll stay on the lookout for those. Then, of course, there are Super Raves. I don't think I'm ready to chase those.


  1. That is a pretty sweet card! Good luck on your quest for the others!

  2. I think I paid over $10 for the Jose Guillen Super Rave.

  3. With this having been early on in the chase insert card era and knowing of how many thunder packs ive seen in bargain bins over the years. I just wonder how many of these will never see the light of day. I wonder this too about the woodard signature rookies card as ive only seen about sixty online for sale and there are 7750 of them. Makes the raves and super raves pretty hard to find

    1. Good point on all accounts. Lots of gems wasting away in bargain bins!
