I’m stumped. I don’t know anything about this card, but when I saw it on eBay last week I decided I needed it. It’s not an officially-licensed card (by either MLB or the MLBPA), but it’s not a collector’s issue either. Based on the fact that it’s signed (and it looks completely legitimate when I compare it to the other Luzinski autographs in my collections) and the information on the back of the card, my best guess is that this was produced for an Acme in-store signing that Luzinski took part in. Acme then somehow got McCormick (the makers of various Lawry’s seasonings) and Lancaster Brand to co-sponsor the signing, in what I assume was an effort to offset the cost of paying Luzinski to sign autographs for free. But all of that is based on supposition — the lack of copyright date on the card means it could’ve been printed at any time in the last 20+ years years — as I cannot find anything on the internet about it.
So, if anyone can shed some additional light on this card, please share as a comment. Aside from the scans, the only information I can provide is that it measures 4″ x 6″, the same size as every Phillies team issue set since 1989. I’d love to add it to the database, thus adding it to my official count of Phillies cards, but without knowing anything more about the card, I don’t feel as though I can do so. Nonetheless, it’s a niece piece to have — it’s just a shame that I’m a vegetarian and that there’s no way I’m actually going to try the recipe on the back.
