Calling Card #444, Do You Hear Me Card 444?

Long story I won't get into, but one of my quirky collections is Baseball Cards numbered 444.
Yep, I want an example of every #444 baseball card.

Here's my list so far:
1981 Topps Garth Iorg Blue Jays
1983 Fleer Al Woods Blue Jays
1983 Topps Wally Backman Mets
1986 Topps Alex Trevino Giants
1988 Score Charlie Moore Blue Jays
1988 Topps Cal Ripken Sr Orioles
1990 Leaf Checklist Will Clark Giants
1990 Topps Kyle Abbott Angels
1990 Upper Deck Craig Worthington Orioles
1991 Leaf Checklist Darryl Strawberry Dodgers
1991 Upper Deck Rickey Henderson A's
1992 Stadium Club Lance Johnson White Sox
1992 Upper Deck George Brett Royals
1994 Fleer Darren Holmes Rockies
1996 Fleer Ultra Gold Medallion Eddie Perez Braves
2006 Upper Deck Jorge Cantu Rays
2008 Upper Deck Matt Murton Cubs
2009 Upper Deck Oakland Team Leaders A's

Short list I know, but those are all cards I found by accident, I've never actively searched through stacks of cards looking for #444.

As I build up the collection I'll start tracking which team has the most players with a #444 card and I'll determine if any one player was lucky enough to get that number more than once.

So, as you're digging through cards, if you come across a #444, think of me.


  1. LOL, I actually have an unannounced franken-set ( i have 3 for future years) that I've been building for about 6 months now. I call this one "Triplets". It contains cards 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, etc. I will be sure to remember any extra 444's I come across.

  2. strawberry has at least two - i'll send his 97 upper deck card your way.

  3. Interesting collecting niche. A variation of my birth date 04 April, but not my birth year. I was born 21 years later.

  4. I'll keep an eye out as I'm sorting, as well as for any Angels you may need!

  5. Awww man... I one of those guys who won't be able to sleep without finding out what's the significance of 444.

  6. Cool idea. I'll have to look for a few
