Default The toughest modern cards you're still looking for...

Here's a thread for those of you still looking for those tough modern cards that you'd love to add to your collection.

Maybe you've never seen what you're looking for or you've seen it and it just keeps eluding you.

Either way, post it here and maybe the right person will see what you need and send you a message!

Good luck!

I am looking for two cards from the 2001 Greats of The Game autograph set. I need the Willie Mays auto and the Willie Stargell redemption card.

Other than my ongoing Barry Larkin collection and signed 95 ud cc se , the only two modern cards I'm looking for are:

1995 ud cc se gold signature Jose Canseco. (got it on 5-13-13)

There are hundreds buried in 5000 ct monster boxes out there somewhere.

and

2009 A & G silk Chipper Jones.... not sure I'd even spring for that one if it showed up..

Default Topps 1981 Coke Yankees--missing one

The SCD Standard Catalog for 2011 ( when it still had the post 1980 listings) listed 12 Topps team sets produced in 1981 for Coca Cola. Eleven of the teamsets were made up of 12 cards, 11 players and one Header team card. The cards are like the regular 1981 Topps card but with a Coke logo. The backs are numbered 1-11. The Header cards allowed you to order a 132 card uncut sheet of 1981 Topps cards. They are not too tough to find

The 12th set, the Yankee team set was apparently not issued at retail. SCD list only 3 known cards, plus the Header card. The 3 players listed are Gossage, Jackson and Cerone.

I have been able to locate 7 others: Guidry, John, Nettles, Dent, Randolph, R Jones and Watson--see below. Since all the other sets involved 11 players, I think there must be one more Yankee, but I do not know who it is. Based on the composition of the other team sets, I believe it will turn out to be an outfielder.

The 3 Yankees listed in SCD are tough, though Larry Fritsch lists them for sale in his Catalog/Web Site, which is where I got those 3. The 7 below are very tough ( Topps Vault). The 11th Yankee card, whoever it is, is my modern era obsession.

Very cool AL! You really amaze me in your ability to locate items! It's a gift!

Try contacting Mike Jasperson at the Topps Company. He is in charge of curating the Topps Vault. Since most of the cards in the team set came from the Vault it would make sense that the missing one may have come from there. Who knows, maybe it's still in there buried under a 1971 Topps Greatest Moments wax pack wrapper, lol.

Not sure if anyone noticed, but most of those are missing the black ink.

Very cool cards!! They are numbered 1 to 3, right? I was only aware of the 3 which are part of the groups of 3 "proofs" for each team. I had the Kingman Cubs proof back in the 80's. This was the only different front card for the proofs. I believe there are 3 proofs for each team, with the only difference being the numbering (other than the Kingman). Do the "blackless" ones have backs?

Default Coke

The 3 checklisted cards and header have full backs and the player cards are numbered 1-3. The others are blank backed proofs
