<Question> Serial Number for 96-97 Upper Deck Hart Hopefuls Gold
I have a 96-97 Upper Deck Hart Hopefuls Gold Mario Lemieux. However, it does not have a serial number on back of the card. Is this a counterfeit or promo card? Does anybody have a clue?

The UD Hart Hart Hopefuls were #'d to 100. The unnumbered cards could have been excess stock?
I have seen a seller on eBay who has been selling Lindros Hart Hopeful Gold cards.
Without the serial number, I have chosen not to buy.Hidden Content

The card you are looking at is being sold by Kruk Cards, and they are NOT the real cards. I have seen the real ones and they are numbered out of 100. These must have been replacements or something, but nothing more. I have been looking for the real version of this and they do come up, but are pricey. I have seen some shady stuff from these guys before, and I avoid them, but if you are good with it by all means. I will continue my quest for a true serial numbered one.I collect Mario Lemieux and Ron Francis only. Everything else is for trade...
Lemieux (2067/6619 = 31.2%)
Francis (269/2117 = 12.7%)

They are still real but they are either ones printed that were suppose to be used as replacements or were stolen or back doored by Upper Deck or an employee.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content
