1999 Bowman Chrome International Refractor Ray Lankford
First up this morning is the 1999 Bowman Chrome International Refractor Ray Lankford. The International Refractors are limited to a print run of 100 and differ from the normal refractor in the background of the card. The normal Bowman Chrome card has the same picture of Lankford, but there is a dugout in the background of the regular card. The International Cards have pictures or flags in the backgrounds depending on the year of the card. I rather like the flags, but this is still a nice new card to add to the Lankford collection.
1997 Skybox EX-2000 Ray Lankford Essential Credentials
I have picked up several of the Essential Credential cards for Ray Lankford over the years and posted them in my space here. However, I had never picked up a copy of the 1997 version until this past week. Skybox ran the Essential Credentials set as a straight parallel the first year they ran this set. Meaning that this card is serial numbered 299 along with all the other Essential Credential cards. The 1998 set began the leveled print runs.
