This Can't Possibly Be A Good Sign If You're Still Looking for SP Cards...

Friend of the blog, and all around good guy, tdlindgren sent me an e-mail today (I've been out today for a family health day thing...), so I didn't get it until now. But it looks like the number 1 source in the hobby did a box break on the not yet released, but highly anticipated, 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights product.

I'm not going to post the video of what they got, but the image below is very, how do you say it, disturbing. As you know, I'm still looking for five more of the 2009 Topps Series II shortprints (Schmidt, Ryan, Ripken, Frank Robinson, and Marichal). If you have them, please let me know...ahem...

Take a look at one of the cards the boys at Beckett just happened to find in their box of goods. Close your eyes if you're ticked off that they even got stuff from the manufacturers...

2009 Topps Updates and Highlights Johnny Mize. Short print???

Wait, didn't Mize already have an SP card in series 1???

2009 Topps Johnny Mize #320. This is from Series 1.

I thought so. Why do I now get the feeling that the search for SP cards is continuing in Updates and Highlights? And why didn't Topps say anything about it??? Let the games continue!!!

Sincerely,

JayBee Anama

And you should note that it's a gold foil card... the veteran card of Tony Gwynn -- pulled from the same pack -- was standard foil.

Things may have become even more complicated in Updates & Highlights...

Wow. So, when does Updates and Highlights officially come out?

Sweet Mizes. If that's a word.

Topps is doing gimmicked SPs of "traded" players in TU&H. Hence the gimmicked Johnny Mize card.

there's already a bunch on ebay, including a babe ruth/boston braves card.
