Default David Dahl USA Baseball Auto

Appears this one is short printed. Zero active ones on eBay.

1st one sold: $9.99 BIN (ouch)
2nd one sold: $35
3rd one sold: $68

yes...I'm writing this because I just pulled one from a retail box :-)

The 2011 Topps USA Box set. Although I think all 3 have been pulled from retail and there are ZERO Red ink or Green Ink on ebay

I've opened 12 of them and only pulled Blue ink, so it seems you can't get other colors

I haven't gotten a hobby team set yet, so I cannot compare to see if Dahl is retail only, that may be the key, I pulled his auto from my one retail set break so far as well.

Thanks for this post- I have 2 sets sealed next to me that I am holding. Hope it gives people a reason to buy these sets from Target.

Did you notice the Dahl auto is a sticker and the card is glossy? I've opened several of these and the Dahl is the only auto that is on a high gloss card. Check yours out and see for yourself. SP?

Yes. Sticker and glossy and he is NOT in the base set

I opened six of the sets today and got 3 Gavin Cecchinis and 3 David Dahls. All the Dahls were glossy with the blue ink sticker autos. Wasn't too happy with that collation until I saw the ebay auctions as well. Seems like he was a pretty decently rated prospect, but I'm pretty sure I pulled autos of his from Sterling I think it was? They didn't really seem that in demand. Hopefully its a retail only or whatnot, but if its a SP then I apparently got really lucky

I'm thinking it's an "SP" because they didn't have time to put his auto into the Hobby sets. A lot happened with the 18u team this year and pushed the games back a few months. Many of the players originally on the team left and Dahl may have been a very late add. Good job by Topps to get him into the set.
