My friend gave me some cards and this one stuck out. I thought it was a Starting Lineups Card at first. Or a Promo card? I just don't know and I was wondering if you can please tell me what kind of card this is, it has no manufacturer stamp or card number on front or back of card. I just hope it's not a cereal or sunflower seed card. Thank you very much for your time.

  I am traveling and away from by books right now. So I can not look anything up to confirm. But the card is not licensed so it will not be worth very much. I am positive it would be worth in the $1.00 or less range. There are hundreds of licensed Nolan Ryan cards out there and lots that  are worth less than a dollar,  so this should be worth less than those.
   Plus the card is badly designed and just plain...well plain ugly.
 So it does not matter how it was distributed. It is of little value.
Good luck, and I will update if I find exactly what it is.

Pricing information on Baseball cards, Basketball card and Football cards was supplied to Jim Beckett by myself and my brother for inclusion in his price guides.

I have made hundreds of thousands of deals in the collecting field. And in so doing I have made lots of mistakes. I remember some of my good deals and all of my mistakes. General Education: St. Martins University 1979, University of Washington 1983, Ho Chi Minh University
