I thought that was a good price for the Clark....

Until I saw the condition of the edges and corners...

Unacceptable.

Yet, we will accept it.

Why wouldn't they do the Tribute-style hard cases to protect these cards, especially since they're "more high-end"?

I just cancelled my case I was going to get, no way should a high $ price point like that have cards with chipping and corner conditions like that.

Going to wait to see a break to see exactly how it is packed. Could just be this particular seller/case.

Also, I hate how he says "a RARE beauty" for every single card.

That will be the case that holds the Ruth bat knob.

I'd be fine with the Gehrig bat nameplate honestly. Trout/Pujols dual auto logoman is fine with me too.

Just a guess, but I think the damage is happening before pack-out. I know on football last year they posted images of cards before pack-out and they had these problems.

I'm guessing it happens going to/from the subjects for signing.

If those 5 ebay listings constitute a "pack" of five star, then this product could be one of the more brutal a$$ whoopings of the year for sure.

I am in for two cases, and all I can hope for is that these cards were thrown away because of condition issues, and this seller went dumpster diving. If not, I am in trouble.

The print runs on the clark and vida blue are downright scary.

Now I am worried. See my previous post about adding base cards to compensate for watered down content. Booooooooo Topps.

Agree, although at least Will Clark generally sells (and as a Giants fan I would love to have).
Its the Nelson Cruz's and Rollie Fingers' that people have to worry about

I have a feeling this still will drop like a rock, especially if those edge and corner issues persist. let alone the numbers on players like Vida Blue/Rollie Fingers

we should!

we should also tweet them to star producing cards in the US instead of china. see the sig.

i have been like shawshank and written them an email a week, nearly a dozen now, stressing that creating jobs will diversify and multiply their US customer base. as well as create quite a few jobs that are needed.

I also purchased a case and a little worried about the quality control issues described in the thread.

Does anyone know if Topps exchanges damaged cards? I would think they should for high-end products but may be wrong. I did exchange a Bowman Harper RC once because of a small crease without a problem.
