    Dumb hobby ideas from the past

    Oh yeah, we know there's been some doozies made by all the companies.

    Post some up.

    Here's two

    Several years ago, in both baseball and football topps reprinted many modern day rookie cards which can easily pass for the originals.

    About twenty years ago, pinnacle came out with 8x10 cards which contained a small card inside.

    That's not the worst part as if the large card was an insert, there's no guarantee the inside card would be an insert.

    The 2016 Stadium Club buybacks (non-autographed versions) had no foil stamping to indicate they were buybacks.

    The Roger Clemens autographs in 1992 Fleer had nothing on them indicating that they were certified autographs.

    Mine would have to be the Upper Deck video cards. seems like some don't work anymore plus they used college football video footage. With a proper pro sports league license and current technology, I think they could be done better today by a manufacturer.

    Those cards suck. There are jersey cards in that set too, but it doesn't say who the player is. Could just be a coach or batboy.

    Any card that doesn't actually picture the player featured (SP Signature Edition for example).

    They were part of the ridiculous 6,700 card 2008 Yankee Stadium Legacy set, which had a card for every game in Yankees history. The jersey and bat cards were just random "relics" from unnamed players.
