    You are still missing a few varieties, one is card #87 Jari Kurri comes with and without the trade strip.

    • Dylan January 5, 2013 at 6:19 pm #

      Hi Claude,

      There are several commonly-known variations missing and there are several yet to be discovered and added later. This is why it’s titled “ongoing checklist.” Thanks!

    Woo hoo!!! Welcome back Jackson. I love this list. I have a photo of the borqu and Gillis if you need it.

    • Dylan January 23, 2013 at 11:08 am #

      Thanks! I am 27 boxes deep into research here. With another 12 on the way. Adding new stuff to the list almost every day.

      • always on the hunt July 17, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

        i am about 21 boxes in and just got a fresh case today. (series one only) i am opening up the case now. 6 boxes in, i am only missing the hull #1 with no line in corner gillis and #131. im going to venture and say that this is an error case.

  3. Shawn January 23, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    I know I have a Mark Fortier and Teppo Numminen Red Blob cards somewhere. I just need to find them and send scans along.

    I am going to go to a few local shops tomorrow and pick up some more boxes.

  4. Shawn January 28, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

    Just pulled an upside down back of a bruins player. I will get the info too you. Also there are penguins players that have upside down backs as well. They are rarer than the all stars upside down backs. Thanks again for the updated list.

    • Dylan January 28, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

      That’s right, I do need to add the Penguins variations. Please feel free to post additional 1990-91 Pro Set variations that I should add to the list. Thanks.

  5. Shawn January 29, 2013 at 6:32 pm #

    Dylan,

    The upside down Bruin is #2 Dave Christinsen. Also I have some green tint North Stars and a heavy silver bleed on #381 Mark Messier. I was wondering if I could use your list when I post these to Ebay? I will be adding photos of everything that I can find. Let me know if that is okay with you or if I have to modify information.

    Shawn

    I have Jari Kurri #87 with the yellow stripe & double printed back

    Are these worth anything?

  9. John May 11, 2013 at 9:07 pm #

    I have some full uncut sheets of pro set football cards, but the backs are the backs of pro set hockey cards. Ever heard of, or seen that error/ variation? I can’t find anything online. Thanks.

  10. always on the hunt July 7, 2013 at 5:43 am #

    I just opened a box with some of the (u) variations as well as the (r) variations. plus i think I might have found a few more. can anyone advise?

  11. always on the hunt. November 8, 2013 at 7:49 pm #

    anyone know where to find a gillis?

  12. Confuzion Melodicmizeryrecords March 13, 2014 at 12:06 pm #

    i have a question, the small little hologram on the back of the card is that in the form of a stanley cup or is it just foil etched into the card? i got a case of these cards years ago and i just went through them recently and one of the card has a big holo foil stuck to the back of the card. i didnt know if this was considered a printing error called the stanley err or if this was just some random sticker that stuck and ripped to the card
