Cards you’ve never seen: 1991 Pro Set Platinum James Brooks Prototype

21 Jun

Another mysterious Pro Set prototype issue. Meant to sample their up-and-coming, premium line of card, Platinum, this promo features former Cincinnati Bengals running back, James Brooks. This one looks like it was an in-hand sample, photocopied for use in the ad, rather than just an image on a sheet sent to the dealer:

Obviously, the backs of 1991 Pro Set Platinum went through a few design changes. What you see above, is the only reference for the card I have ever been able to find. Certainly, at least that copy must exist out there somewhere, but as of 2010, not a copy has surfaced on any of the usually channels.

PS: Check out those case prices. They are extremely limited!!

    I used to have the two Pro Set Platinum prototypes can’t remember if James Brooks was one or not. I have since sold my set to pay for a new engine/tranny. I also acquired a Platinum Player’s issued set. It was the regular issued set in a binder with the Player’s name embossed on the front with the Proset logo.
