    Which "Impossible Oddballs" are you searching for?

    There's always an "impossible oddball" on a player collector's list of wants. Interested in seeing what's at the top of your want lists. Maybe somebody will have a lead for you!

    For my Grace collection, I'm looking for these two Topps test issues. I have a 1998 Topps ProShooters Marble, but have been searching for the checklist card #1 for a long time. Thought I had a lead on this last year but the guy suddenly stopped returning emails.



    I'd also love to find a 1998 Topps SportzCubz#6. Never seen one for sale but someone emailed a photo of it to me.

    thanks Brad

    I emailed Mike about the Tattoo, but he won't budge from $25. I'm willing to wait it out...

    examples of two aqueous Pucketts can be seen at www.twinscards.com, so they do exist.

    Re: Which "Impossible Oddballs" are you searching for?

    For me, Dave Winfield has some Rainbow Foods cards from '96 or '97 they are somewhat hard to locate.

    For Perk, he has nothing oddballish that I know of, but I am searching for the 2010 Topps Chrome Glen Perkins w/Andy Oliver back. I doubt it exists, but I try to keep an eye out for it just in case. I have the Andy Oliver w/ Glen Perkins back, so I assumed there is a flipped version.

    Also any Just Minors Parallels
