As much as I would like to think that, I'm willing to bet several of those listed as not shown up are probably being held back at the Topps offices.

I can understand why you would say that given their track record on occasion, but really the Gehrig, Ripken, and Aaron are the only major knobs still left. The Ripken/Gehrig dual bat knob was pulled in Ginter so I don't know why they would hold those back for Tier One. Who really knows though....

Wow...nice catch by you and horrible job by the seller (although they did get almost $1500, so it's not that bad).

So, here is number 78......Cal Ripken Jr.

Nice.

Personally, the Gehrig would be one of three of the major knobs I would want (Ruth and Cobby being the other two). And I pick those three because at $1500 for the Ripkin, I could have purchased a full bat with his auto for far less, whereas with the three above, that would be impossible.

As much as I would love to bust some Tier 1, I've seen enough of the breaks that it makes me way to nervous to even bother to try.

I was shocked with such an awful listing , the seller did pretty good. The neighborhood of 1500 is about right for Cal
