Pretty sure Topps is the one selling these...
Edit- The sheets not eBay auctions, how could they sue anyone for selling something they bought?

Anyone with a Twitter account want to blow them up until they answer why they are doing this?

I would love to see what Topps has to say and that's if they respond.Somebody needs to get a answer out of Topps because this can cause alot of damage to the hobby and if those cards have backs then you pretty much can see a decline in what final sales of super's and would cause a uproar with in the hobby

Topps should never allow uncut sheets out to the general public and they should be all distriod.But then again Topps has done some stupid things in the past by throwing #@#@#@#@ out in there dumpsters.

I use to hear all kind of BS in the local hobby stores when I was young.I live near the Duryea plant where the cards use to be made.I seen all kinds of uncut sheets at the local flea markets.

1 time a dealer was telling me people where coming in there shop with zip lock bags of old baseball,Hockey,Basketball and football packs and people where walking in and this was going on for weeks and he thought something was wrong and figured they where stolen so he decline buying any of them.

Owe well the cards are no longer made in Duryea and I am sure they have learned from people dumpster diving back in the 80's and early 90's.

Stupid that topps releases these.

It's ok. He'll pay back the community by running one of his awesome contests for his crappy website where he gives away a Bowman Draft Paper RC!

So to be clear. When anyone is going to post anything on this message board, they should do a search for each and every topic? Just want to learn what the expectation is moving forward...

And a question. When someone is trolling you, do you just report them to a mod or what? Thanks for the info!

The same seller is now listing color refractors that are "test runs." The boarders are huge on them as well. Just saw a purple and orange ozuna pop up. They look like the auto card with no auto. He says the backs look like a normal card but don't have the /10 or /25 stamps. How is this guy getting away with selling this crap?

I said it above too but looking at the one link to uncut sheets in guessing he bought them from Topps and just cut them up. Thinking he cut out the bigger names bigger just to make sure they weren't small? Doubt he can get in trouble for selling something he bought from Topps.

Guy is making BANK.

Not only is he selling players in the set; more than a dozen of these orange, purple supers are guys that weren't even in Chrome. No clue why people are buying them but they are. Pretty nice gig this guy has buying uncut sheets if that's how this came about. Another brilliant move by Topps to allow this to happen though ... these guys just can't miss in the eyes of the consumer.

I sent the seller an email, asking him some questions about the Ozuna purple refractor that he listed. I asked him why the boarders were so thick, and where he got the card from. This was his response:

"These test rookies are slightly bigger than normal cards. I purchased all of these in a big lot from another dealer. They are printer's proofs from Topps and were basically the cards used for the design of this set that never got signed and issued into production.

I have the other 8 versions of these cards as well including the 1/1 Superfractor."
