All A*B* cards rare. I recently had a small quanity that quickly sold at $5 each.

The most valued A*B* card is mostly the Mark McGwire A*B* card, which seems to never turn up for sale.

If I read the A*B* article correctly, so far they've all had bold "40th Anniversary" backs.

I just pulled a faded A*B*.

I'm 44 cellos in. I've pulled two different Oil Can Boyds, both versions of the Ryan RB, one pack of bold "40th Anniversary," and some other stuff. My question is, in that list is the suffix-a card always the correct and most common version?

I've also got a cello with bolds viewable through the back that I'm keeping sealed.

All of the A*B* cards should all have bold "40th Anniversary" backs.

I think you might have a Tiffany card, which does have a faded A*B* back. It was probably inserted into a pack by mistake. See link:

No, I'm quite familiar with Tiffany cards. I've been ripping those sets for a while now. This is a regular Topps card with the faded back and A*B*.

ETA: I just noticed my scanner blew it out for some reason and made it appear white. It's not. I'll try and get a better back scan.

ETA2: This should be better.

I'm 96 cellos in. Finally pulled a Mattingly 10 hits. Still nothing on the Whiten/Hoiles front but I think I've pulled many of the other variations. I'm surprised Topps went crazy over fixing the Whiten and Boyd cards and yet let these go.

It's a little tougher to see in the scan than in person but the mark and glove laces are definitely green. Is this a new variation or a misunderstanding of the existing?
