Topps Tribute
 
Just got an e-mail from Nick's Sportscards in Dallas, TX

Congratulations to Brian Leftin and Evan Bennett for pulling these two great cards out of Topps Tribute

Babe Ruth Cut Signature One of One
Jackie Robinson Cut Signature One of One

Evan pulled the Jackie Robinson first and a few hours and boxes later Brian pulls the Babe Ruth.
These are two of the finest cards I have ever seen pulled in our store.

It was a great day at the card shop!

Can't paste the actual pic of the cards on here from my e-mail. Will keep trying.


Here's the pics:

How much do you think these cards will bring? :eek:

nephinfan 01-11-2010 01:55 PM

Those cards look amazing! Thanks for sharing.

iluvfish2 01-11-2010 01:57 PM

Oh my! I wonder if these came out of the same case!

rambel 01-11-2010 01:57 PM

Dammit! That's like 15 minutes from my house!

JLR0747 01-11-2010 01:58 PM

TrueNE_09 01-11-2010 02:05 PM

If those came from same store or case. that is crazy. good job topps. congrats to owners

mwheeler27 01-11-2010 02:27 PM

Very nice cards. They could have done a better job with the Jackie Robinson cut out window, but I don't think anyone will complain. I love how Ruth is looking up at his auto.

thebear29 01-11-2010 02:34 PM

Are they both 1/1?

kidlou 01-11-2010 02:46 PM

isnt Beckett in Texas? hmmm...i wonder if Beckett employees pulled those cards...lol.....o by the way, nice collation Topps. way to distrubute them throughout the country :mad:

congrats to the peeps that pulled them :)!

[QUOTE=thebear29;428312]Are they both 1/1?[/QUOTE]

yup both 1 of 1 and from the same store...don't know if they are from the same case...e-mail just stated boxes later.

The window isn't great, but atleast the signature isn't cut off!:)!

JasonH 01-11-2010 03:35 PM

wow! Those are both gorgeous cards. John you have to email them back and find out if they did come from the same case. If they did shame on Topps. You have to make sure the best hits in a product are spaced throughout. Congrats to whoever got em!

Monsters 01-11-2010 05:51 PM

Nice to see both cuts used were in Ink...not a big fan of the pencil cuts.

37Jetson 01-11-2010 07:24 PM

After watching the Bryant Gumbel video regarding all of the fake Babe Ruth autos I can't help but wonder about the authenticity. Something seems "too clean" with this Ruth cut. For the sake of the hobby there must be a way for us to regain confidence in "certified" autographs.

I was going to say the same thing but did not want to put the thread down in anyway,

I feel the same way also. i will never pay a dime for a cut auto. How do you really know that Ruth or Robinson signed that card? You can't

papajim 01-11-2010 08:21 PM

How does anyone know the player signed anything, including those little stickers they use today???? I can see AP's nephew getting $3. a card from uncle Adrian:D

wee111 01-11-2010 08:40 PM

atleast it wasnt pulled in taiwan.

prodigylush 01-11-2010 09:43 PM

What do you think $5,000 Jackie and $8,000 Ruth?

luckyrollers 01-11-2010 10:13 PM

So are there any more hits left like those to get other than Babe 1/1?

boxbreaker88 01-11-2010 10:41 PM

well there goes the product lol

WizFan 01-11-2010 10:43 PM

[QUOTE=wee111;428675]atleast it wasnt pulled in taiwan.[/QUOTE]

Yes, finally.

pskell02 01-11-2010 10:48 PM

[QUOTE=WizFan;428831]Yes, finally.[/QUOTE]

Those guys don't open much baseball, so we are pretty safe to see the big pulls not coming from there. Texas, Cali, etc are where we see them here :D

Basketball and football, forget about it...
