    two different types of topps triple header balls?

    I've heard there are 1991 and 1992 versions ... is this true, or are people just not listing properly? Here is a refresher as to what one looks like:

    Believe they are dated 1992 on the bottom of the box. Here is a sell sheet that you may want btw. If you look in the bottom right corner it does give a code that ends w/ -91. So maybe that's where the 1991 comes from?

    [MENTION=2659]tpeichel[/MENTION] or [MENTION=4035]DaClyde[/MENTION] ever see a box marked 1991 ?

    I've always thought it was just the one year.

    Just one year. I had to figure this out long ago. All the major catalogs list the Cubs ball with Sandberg, George Bell, and Grace, but Grace isn't on it, rather it is Andre Dawson. Plus two of the balls are short printed, Cubs is one of them. I thought maybe there were two years too, but after extensive research determined only one. Wonder if [MENTION=10405]Hawk8[/MENTION] knows about this issue?

    The reason I asked mainly is because a guy I'm buying several cards from ... he had two of them, and I wondered why. I went ahead and asked him.

    Only one set ever came out that I am aware of. However, player placement variations do exist. I purchased a box worth of Astros to verify this. Your player could be on three different locations on the ball: left panel, right panel, or in the middle. Not sure if this is the case for all teams. However, it was for the Astros.

    Cool, thanks for the info. Hadn't known that and am curious about the Giants now.

    I'd like to know what you find. So maybe we can confirm its for other teams too.

    I do have the Cubs ball and now I will have to be on the look out for more balls to see if there is a placement difference

    Interesting, I was aware of two different variations, but I didn't realize each player could be in any spot on the ball. I've got a few more to pick up!

    It was for Bagwell. So I'm assuming it's that way for the other players(Biggio and Caminitti in my case). I think it would be odd if only one player jumps around to all three spots. I'll have to look through that box later and see where the other guys are on these variations.

    I'm going to pretend I didn't see this thread. I have 1 ball, that's good enough for me. Unless someone wants to send me any others.

    Dude, don't sweat it. They don't pop for Bagwell much anyways. Had I not gotten really lucky to find a box, I'd be in the "I didn't see this thread" crowd.

    There is a joke in there somewhere...
