Should sell for more than they do. Sold two copies for $15-25 a year or so ago. There are three versions.
Yes, he is absolutely not part of this partial parallel set. Once again, Beckett is wrong about these cards.
Can anyone confirm that this card exists?
I’ve had a handful of emails come in via my blog regarding this alleged 3rd Variation. Any expert Ryan collectors with bulk supply to check?
These have both been selling for a couple of years-ish now. The Cox and others from the same sheet have been known for many years, actually. They are print flaws, not variations, which were created...
I need Arias but would also like a Wilson. I actually remember seeing several players with the promo “gold foil” on front and had been prospecting Arias at the time. No clue what happened to that...
“Low” print run on 1996 Topps factory sets. At least this has always been the answer given. 1995 and 1996 factory sets were allegedly produced in smaller numbers.
Now, why the 1996 (and 1997)...
Beckett is wrong.
They often are about error, variation and promo cards. Especially ones discovered after they stopped cataloging and noting them.
As mentioned earlier on the thread, only 45 players from series one have this variation.
Yes, sounds right. I had Klesko, Rickey Henderson and, I believe, Chipper Jones, at various points. The golds seems to fall outside of “the 45” but a handful of E&V collectors confirmed several of...
45 total affected subjects. Same goes for the base cards of those 45 players. The entire set absolutely DOES NOT EXIST in this variation. The 45 players can be found in the following varieties:
CARD # NAME VARIATION
659 - 659 back
659 - 665 back
659 - 659 back with 665 number
Well first off...thanks for the kind words! I appreciate the recognition and am always glad to provide info/notes if you or anyone else needs it. Definitely did not think you were being cagey about...
I sure know what you mean. My unsolicited two cents on this subject:
I've devoted an extraordinary amount of time and work to discovering, cataloging and discussing junk era discoveries. And like...
Also, 1998 Topps Stars stink too. I think football may be worse but the smell is strong on the '98s as well.
I too am curious what the rarest variations are.
Also, I have found a handful of new variations in the DK subset and the Grand Slammers subset.
This is a set that I have fond memories of.
I worked in a shop at the time and I recall them releasing as a mediocre line (as several recent new/experimental lines did in recent years) but very...
I don't have my research/notes accessible these days but I am fairly certain there was a "tell" to the Baines that gave it away. I think it was related to the seemingly separated piece of line that...
Just an aside but the Nolan Ryan King/5000Ks, Harold Baines Line and Brian Downing (and likely the Ruben Sierra DK) cards are definitely intentional variations in that set meant to capitalize on the...
This is true with Yount, possibly others too.
Back during the Galarraga madness, I sold a lot that had more than 3 versions. Generally there are variances in what I define as the 2nd, or edited,...
Here is one example of 2nd type: https://www.comc.com/Cards/Baseball/1989/Donruss_-_Base/5/Robin_Yount/1942111 (in case it links to the whole page, it is the card being sold by...
Very interesting stuff, especially the Archives/Fan Favorites cards.
I've seen the 1997 Topps with gold name cards before. The strange thing is that the foil applied is from 1996 Clear Assets (a...
This variation has been known to me since 2005-ish. Few collectors care about them based on the multiple times I've listed Yount and others on ebay over the years.
Usually there are three types:...
