E-Mail Question & Answers
Question: I just bought a couple of the 2009-10 Upper Deck Basketball blaster boxes. As I was looking through the cards I noticed that there were quite a few cards that had the wrong names/pictures. I didn’t see any record in Sports Card Monthly, but found some references on eBay and another card site. Do you have any details on how many of these were made and what the value is?
Answer: Good question, I actually just opened up a blaster myself and kept looking for the errors but didn’t find any.
They do have some value, I’m not sure if this is a complete list – but its probably most of them: http://www.checkoutmycards.com/Cards,vList,=2009-10+upper+deck+name
I think these were actually spotted by collectors and the magazines haven’t put together a full list. Hope this helps – and they seem to be a nice find.
Let us know if you have any other questions.
Question: I just wanted to alert you to a small discrepancy that I noticed in your product previews for the 2011 Allen & Ginter
Uninvited Guests Insert Set. The checklist is listed with card # UG2 Bobby Mackey’s Music World. However, I just pulled this same card # UG2, and my version is printed as “The White House”. I have attached a couple of pics, for your convenience. I’m not sure whether this is an error or perhaps there are some variations that I am not yet aware of, however I just wanted to alert you to this possible error.
Thank you for your time and for the informative information that you provide on your site.
Answer: Thanks for the information! I have since updated my checklist to reflect the change. If you ever see any more errors on any of my pages feel free to email me.
Thanks again, and best of luck with your collection.
Question: Any idea when 2011 Panini Donruss Elite Extra Edition Baseball is scheduled and checklist info?
Answer: Donruss EEE usually comes out toward the back half of the year, and I’d expect information by September if it were to come out this year. Panini did say it was releasing the product in 2011 on Twitter.
Question: While my son and I were opening our 2011 Topps Series 2 Baseball cards, we came across 2 packs of cards that the card backs were different(brown and not white), including a different Topps logo on the front.They are numbered the same as the white backs. I didnt see these cards on the check found on your site. Can you let me know what type of cards these are?
Answer: That’s a good observation and I had to double check on those cards, however they are “Target” cards, because I believe they can only be found in retail packs at Target. I believe they are somewhat more rare, and some have some decent value. I double checked the photo against other cards in the set and they appear to be similar: http://www.checkoutmycards.com/Cards/Baseball/2011/Topps_Target
I’ll add a note about these on our checklist, thanks for sending me this – and hopefully this helps. Thanks for the question.
