Default Why Are there 2 Luck/RGIII booklets with the same #

I was looking on line at the TTT Booklets of RGIII and Andrew Luck as I'm interested in getting one for my PC...

Here are the 2 listings...

Both are serial numbered 09/10 and NONE of the patches match up. Even the A in Luck's auto is different. Thoughts?

Is that supposed to be another RG 3 auto on "R" on first one?

If it makes the OP feel better, I think they actually made 5! 5 different Luck Griffins /10... only difference between them is the card number apparently.

I doubt Topps would be THAT lazy.., they would have at least changed images.

This is true but normally the different card numbers have different pictures and these 2 are exactly the same

The card number is prob different though

Normallt, yes... but Luck and RG3 Aren't exactly normal are they? NO! They are extraordinary!!!! So Topps paid tribute by being extra ordinary. All 5 cards in this special book set are /10... all 5 cards are EXACTLY the same, except the card number.

I think they may have done this with a lot of the cards coming out of triple threads this year. The booklets this year have little to no variation. Check these Gronkowski's out (in the order I saw them)....

Then I saw this:

2012 Topps Triple Threads Rob Gronkowski Autograph Patch Book D to "2 3" WOW | eBay

From there it was wild...

Cue this video to 3:26

As Marino Points out there are 5 different luck/griffin booklets #'d 10

Search Results | Beckett.com

as for using the same image....

there are 5 different 2012 Triple threads Ike Davis bat + Sticker Au all with the same image
(but different sayings)

So I'm not that surprised

Exactly, and that is why I do not touch these. Why or how people pay absurd prices for this overvalued product is beyond me. Instead of having 1-2 nice TRUE 1/1s they ruin the product with a dozen or more of each player LOL

Also the booklets are ignorant....please card companies STOP making them...that is all

Good to see you back Golferphil...have not seen you around much

Thanks man! They definitely could have put more effort into it. Do you think you still are gonna buy a Luck/RGIII?
