    Tim,

    I bet if we combined our collections, we still would not have them all. I noticed you found a (g) for Aaron. I have (number) and (a-f) for him, but no (g).

    Finding the right collection...

    According to my notes, Alomar has AT LEAST 4 different pages. 25 (with no letter) and 25a, both Blue Jays. Then 25b & 25c are Orioles pages. He could have more, but I don't have any others.

    I...

    Did you check the packet number designation? It might just be one of the later print runs.

    I am fairly certain that as the pages were rereleased in subsequent years, the letters got lager. For...

    Dang, I awoke a sleeping giant with this post.

    I need to dig out the dupes and start trying to get rid of some of these, so if you still need any, maybe we can do some trading.

    Yes, the Rivera comment threw me off. I guess if first Topps card was OK, then Mantle would be in the mix. I knew Piazza and Pedro definitely did not have true Topps RCs.

    Now if managers...

    You are being quite the baby here and I bet I missed an even better display, as I see you have edited everything. I am not knocking you or the players you collect. Quit reading into what I am...

    Well, then we need to find out which team has the most rookie card appearances so far for HOFers.

    I'll try to come up with Dodgers. Are we talking for newer years, first Topps card?

    Reminds me of a simpler time when something like that card might have actually been that players first card issued. Part of the reason I have no desire to chase modern rookies. You practically need...

    Coveted, rare, popular or significant doesn't always translate to aesthetics. I personally don't care for the pose. I am familiar with the proof and not downplaying it's position in the hobby, but...

    Just one in today, another Marichal. This might be the last one. Someone really needs to do a moderately numbered Marichal in a Dodgers uniform. So what if he only appeared in 2 games before...

    Like most things that rely on a vote, it is a flawed process. I also was a little surprised that so many solid players with surprising stats were nearly completely snubbed, although Jeter was the...

    Now that I am updating this thread as mail arrives, the little nuisances about my work mail delivery really start to stand out. Had a stretch where mail was late or not delivered.

    Are you saying that the Bowman Rivera would count if he were in uniform, because it was a Topps product?.

    Nice, I don't think I knew that off the top of my head either. Makes sense, as he is the youngest surviving former Brooklyn Dodger. He debuted in 1956, but a couple players debuted after him (1957)...

    Interesting when I went to see how the votes stacked up, this caught my eye. Walker and Jeter match up very closely on a lot of stat lines. The obvious is the AB and H differences, but think of...

    Guessing you are still relatively young. I just turned 50, but it is impossible for me to read card backs now w/o glasses and sometimes even with glasses, certain print is still too small to read...

    Topps defined the standard size and it was probably just a ploy to save money. Bowman was gone and they would not really have any true competition (aside from a few random Fleer & Leaf issues) for...

    Yes, that Ryan is actually a pretty good pose for 79 standards. The lack of col,or adds to the appeal for me. However, that 77 Reggie is just a terrible image for 77 standards. Now the 78 Reggie,...

    The thing is, do we really know if all cards got sample versions and if so, did they also include all with a gold version. You'd like to think so, but I guess only Beckett knows.
