    Cris Dishman was never really a hot player among collectors, and his cardboard is reflective of that. Honestly he doesn't have much in the way of RC's.

    An oddball company named Wildcard had it's first of three releases in 1991. Wildcard's gimmick was that you could pull a player card striped with a number accross it (5, 10 25, 50...etc). If you were so inclined you could mail that card into the manufacturer and receive that number of cards of the player (a 50 striped Warren Moon card could be redeemed for 50 of the regular issue cards). Rather than redeem the cards most people just hung onto the cards for their own value as short prints.

    As Dishman's RC appear in the 1991 sets his higher multiple Wildcard pieces must be considered his best RC's.

    This guy must have busted an ton of 1991 Wildcard because he has multiples of Dishrag's highest multiplier... I just bought one (and only $0.75 for shipping to Canada means that the price including the card is less than some charge me for shipping alone).

    He also has a Childress 1000 stripe up for sale. :)
