Does anyone have a list of Trump Under Fire & Clinton Controversies Short Prints? PLMK, thank you

It is a shame that the manufacturer does not employ better quality control. I noticed with interest (and some disbelief) that there are a few Gem Mint 10 base cards on ebay. With the way the cards are packed, in the flocked trays in hobby boxes, it’s amazing ALL cards aren’t damaged while being removed. I have some otherwise beautiful and rare “hit” cards (autos, flags, coins, shredded $, etc) with edges looking like the lid of a poorly opened tin can. Shame on you, MR. WALLOS! Going for the BUCK and ruining the BANG in the process! Oh.. and I’m not an idle complainer… so far I’ve purchased over three cases (16’s) across all 3 series. Guess I’m a much slower learner than I realized…

Frank Johnson

My question is there a list of ALL THE MONEY CARDS they printed and which ones are the rarest?

I’ve been trying to put together a list which is very hard to do..

Thanks for anyones help!

Great cards. How is Leaf going to finish off the campaign? Where the first set leaves off is only a sample of how the 2016 presidential race will make history.Series two could be a big hit.


And now this: the latest eBay seller of the Biden and Johnson Candidate Portrait inserts claims that the few copies that are out there were distributed directly to dealers. So any collector trying to fill out the holes in his or her set through packages is apparently being played for a sucker . . .


Well, the Biden and Johnson Candidate Portrait cards have finally started to show up on eBay, but only in the color version. And I note on the official web site that these are now listed as “SSP” cards. But here’s the unbelievable part: while the number of Biden’s card is CP21 as is listed on the checklist, Johnson is CP28, not CP27 as listed. Brian Wallos, the Benchwarmers guy who created this set, ought to be ashamed of himself. Either his company is guilty of gross incompetence, or it’s intentionally trying to create the impression for collectors that there’s another CP27 out there.


The Rick Perry #21 does have a correct version (Santorum error version is common). I know one dealer only found 1 correct Perry version in 2 full hobby box cases (24 hobby boxes), and I was fortunate enough to grab the Carly Fiorina error card on Ebay… only one I’ve seen, so I’m curious what that ratio really is.

Err or Short-print Card #4 Carly fiorina ~ have her right & left hand up, Actually a mirror image


Has anyone seen Candidate Portrait inserts of Joe Biden (CP21) or Gary Johnson (CP27), in either the color or black & white version? Neither card has made an appearance on eBay since this set was released . . .


As for errors, in addition to the Rand Paul #88 having been printed with an #86, the Rick Perry #21 card identifies him as Rick Santorum on the front of the card. Another round of proofing before this set went to the printer would have appeared to have been in order . . .


The higher numbers of both the Candidate Portraits and the Trump Under Fire chase sets appear to be short-printed, at least in the Hobby boxes. For the Portraits, 1-18 appear to be available in greater numbers, 19-27 in lesser. With the Trump Under Fire, its 1-18 common, 19-24 more rare. It’s a little irritating; the sets are hard enough to complete.


There is 2 different of the #86, but no number 88. At least in the case I opened.

Not sure on the colored parallels or the reverse flag patches, wish they would put out some info on these.


anyone else running across Martin O’Malley and Rand Paul both having card number 86?

Also, any word on the rarity of the different colored foil parallels? (1:??)


The gold is the most common, I also got red and blue mini flag patches in my case


On the mini flags some are green and some are gold. Any idea of which is rarer? I have a Ted Cruz Gold

It will be interesting to see who they can get to sign for this set. I don’t want to start anything political, but sell high on Hillary! Not that it matters, actually…

Good to see they got Trump and Huckabee autos there, anyway.
