Besides its backdoored and not worth as much as you would like to pretend it is.

This is the 1/1 autograph throwback from the set.

I am unsure you can wipe an autograph off a card that easy without causing some sort of damage or without the grading card companies saying the card was altered if the autograph was removed.

Please quit saying this card was back doored without proof. This card was in the readers write section of Beckett and Clay Luraschi from Topps said that card stuck together during the signing process and thats what happened here.

Right now not nearly as much as it would have when I first started out on this adventure.

A few years back having it signed and graded I think a fair price for a BGS9 1/1 like this with the odds to pull at 1:614,088 packs would have been maybe two thousand dollars.

I cant seem to find it now and the links were deleted from the old thread, but I had found mention of one identical to the OP's on another forum right around time of release. That person had pulled it from a pack and that person stated that topps told him these versions were not intended to be in the pack. that person laughed it off and sold it on ebay.

As I recall this OP bought this card on ebay.
So effectively he is trying to get topps to "do something"
about a card that he bought on the secondary market.

There was also another thread from another forum that was verbatim to OP's long story from 1st post of previous thread,

except the previous thread neglected to mention he received a $200 Arod auto as compensation, but felt it wasnt good enough ....

I am sorry but you might be mistaken. As far as I know Topps never told anyone these cards shouldn't have been in packs and if anyone has proof Topps did say that I would be very eager to see that.

Topps did comment to Beckett (December 2005) in the readers writes section of the magazine years back and they said "During production, chrome cards have a tendency to stick together. This is what most likely happened and an unknown number of unsigned cards were accidentally inserted into packs. Any collector in possession of these cards needs to contact our customer service department so we can resolve the situation."

I did contact them and was always told to just send the card in and they would replace it which I did not feel comfortable doing without knowing what would be sent in return.

They did send me another arod autograph card which I sent back to them as I didn't feel it was a fair replacement.

Did you ever get to check to see if yours has stickers on the back?

I went to my safe deposit box yesterday and wasn't even thinking of this card till I opened the box and saw it on top.

So I remembered I promised a full scan of the card and grabbed it and brought it back home.

So they sent you an autograph of A Rod as a replacement for a card which is missing an A Rod autograph. And that isn't fair?

Your willfull ignorance of reality is both amusing and perplexing at the same time. I can't tell if you are just f-ing with all of us or if you really aren't too bright.

If they were backdoored why would there be so many extra 1/1s?

If they were backdoored why wouldn't Topps have some sort of police report about them? That would really solve everything as then I would be in possession of stolen property and be forced to surrender the card.

With Topps statement though in Beckett in 2005 I feel confident that these were not backdoored.

Let me ask you this question then, what would Topps have to gain by admitting that these were backdoored?

The difference being, when told by topps that it wasnt supposed to be in the pack to begin with, he simply sold it on ebay.

So you are saying all autographs of the same player are equal in value no matter what?

An autograph of arod that has the odds to pull at 1:100 is equal to an arod autograph with the odds to pull at 1:614,088 packs?

My answer would be no they would not be the same value.

Read what you just wrote, and apply it to all cards that are known to be backdoored.

I will have a fantastic rebuttal of the above quoted remarks after I finish off this bottle of Draino and paint chips. I've got to kill off a few brain cells to make it to your level.

See here is your problem. You are trying to use common sense with this fellow. You will get so frustrated you will resort to using Black Tar Heroin.

You would have an easier job getting Raymond Babbitt to miss Judge Wapner

The good feeling of telling the truth?

Plus then perhaps they would have caught the thief or thieves and it would send a message and be a deterrent for future problems?

I just have one last post on this subject..Your card is neither a.) unique or b.) valuable. Try posting it on ebay and see how much you get for it, then we can see if continual posting of this is worth discussion.

Of course it's worthy of further discussion. It's hilarious!

Except yours isn't the one that is inserted 1:614,088 packs, that would be the superfractor 1/1 in which yours obviously is not. No 1/1 stamp and neither is it a superfractor. You have some card worth maybe $3

Without some sort of police report or confirmation from a company how can we know for sure what cards are backdoored and what cards aren't?

If and when Topps or UD or any card company finds that a card or cards they should have in inventory is missing they should file a police report.
