Every now and then, I come across some obscure mystery release unknown in origin. This Mike Greenwell broder is one of those mystery releases. The front looks something akin to what a high school yearbook committee would put together last minute. It’s simple enough in design and color and there’s really not much else aside from the pic of Mr. Greenwell. Given Greenwell’s career span and judging by the look of his age in this picture, I’d guess this card was released sometime between 1989 and 1990. I will also add that other discovered mystery issues similar in nature have revealed that they were released during that time frame with a standard deviation of 1 (give or take). The back of the card provides next to no info at all. All that’s left after the player’s name are the incredibly descriptive and highly clarifying notes: “series 2, card #15.” Okay, so we know what series and the card number but nothing else. There isn’t a year, brand name, or MLB licensed logo. I guess anyone could have made this card given that it’s not licensed by the MLB. This card is so obscure and lacking so much pertinent information that there really isn’t any logical way to research more into this release. If you have any information on this card, I would love to hear from you. Until then, I will continue to be stumped by this inexplicable and somewhat bizarre release.
