Default Question about 98 Stadium Club First Day issue /200

I recently won this auction..

Kobe Bryant #045/200 1998-99 Topps Stadium Club First Day Issue #170 98-99 RARE | eBay

Its for a 98 Stadium Club Kobe Bryan First day issue 45/200.

I took a look at the scan and it look proper. I thought maybe the scan didnt pick up the foil numbering.

Anyways, I got in the mail yesterday and the foil numbering is very faint and hard to see. There is no foil but just a stamping of the numbering. Legit looking stamp (The rectangle box around the numbering).

Anyone else seen the foil part missing? Just want to make sure its legit. I mean it does say First day issue on the front. I think I got it for a steal of a price as well.

I've got a couple of no names that are the same way...had to look more than once to notice the numbering.

I see the #'ing but it is very faint, but legit IMO.

In person its virtually impossible to see. Then again I had an eye appointment yesteday and my eyes were dialated so that might have been a problem.

It might be an issue with the two different series. I think there was series 1 and 2 for this year. I have seen many non foil, and just as many with foil.

I think the scan gives an indecisive feeling on whether or not there is gold foil, so it appears almost damaged and therefore caused the low price.

Great pickup!

Grading it?

I'm a little late to the party, but on my Stackhouse version the foil is there and so is the faint outline of a box. I think the earlier poster who said it could be a difference between Series 1 and Series 2 issues might be on to something. I also know that Topps Gold Label did the same thing (without the gold foil) on many of their parallels too.
