Props to topps for fixing the mistake, but what really bothers me is the fact they screwed up such an important card with such an obvious error in the first place!!! How did this slip by QC? What the hell were they doing?

Plus, they were just plain lazy......they should have made a new card for the guy!!!

It is not related to this instance, but I have a family member who was on a federal grand jury that indicted some guys selling regular jerseys as game used ones to a bunch of people including trading card companies.

Ultra-rare bat knob? How can you be so sure they went "to all that trouble"?

I've seen bats that old with knobs like that that aren't very valuable at all. How do you know this one is "ultra-rare"? I mean, if Topps is going to screw up like they did with those jerseys, who's to say they didn't "screw" up the knob as well. After all, wouldn't it be harder to catch as not being authentic to Gehrig?

I'm under the assumption that it's a genuine game-used Lou Gehrig bat. They can cut a bat up into a few thousand chips, but you only get one nameplate and one know out of each bat, making them rare!

There are a lot of conspiracy theories out there and I don't subscribe to them. If you do, then great. Keep collecting cards made with an exact-o knife and leave the crappy old Topps cards to everyone else.

There have been many proven inaccurate and incorrect assumptions concerning memorabilia pieces in Topps cards already. I'm just curious as to why you are so sure this knob was from a game-used Gehrig bat?

You don't have to subscribe to any conspiracy theories to know facts.

Don't let your curiosity get the better of you.
