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

I don't think the Stargell redemption card exists. We never could prove that when I was at Beckett, but Stargell passed on as these cards were being printed and to me, it's a long shot he actually signed these cards.

Hi Rich

I read Mawitzi's post the other day and was wondering the same thing. I know in 2000 I bought a small baseball card collection that contained an UD Legends Stargell autograph redemption card. After waiting months for the card to be redeemed, I received a letter from UD stating that Willie was in the hospital and was unable to sign the cards.

Later that year I received a package from UD along with another letter from UD apologizing for the amount of time it took to redeem the card.

It wasn't long after that Willie passed away.

I've never seen the 2001 GOTG redemption card, so I'm wondering too if it actually exists.

I was lucky enough to pick up this Mays card last year. They don't pop up often.

Atleast you've seen one, I don't remember ever coming across one. I am also on the hunt for the 2000 Legends and the 2000 GOTG Jeter. I picked up all versions of the 96 Leaf Signature and Extended before the prices really took off so I'm happy about that.

I noticed that you did not list the 1977 Top Trophies U.L. Washington as a need, so you must have that one. Those are quite hard to track down. Out of curiosity, where did you find it?

12 coins known so far, They are prototypes that never made it to production for a test issue . Still waiting for more to show up to see if three colors were minted for each

Default Bench/Wills item

Mike---that item is listed in SCD's Standard Catalog as a "1980 Topps( ?) Sticker Prototype". It lists 4 other two player panels as well. This is the only one I have or have seen personally. I assume the ( ?) means Bob Lemke was not positive it was a Topps item. The Wills pictured is obviously not Maury. But The Topps 1973 reprint set of 8 has 3 incorrectly identified players, so Topps is know to have made mistakes .

Here are 2 other items, one which has a comical number of errors, that may or may not really be Topps items. The Mantle is listed under Topps in SCD, but not the Puffy Stickers

Interesting items! The Wills looks like Bump. I really like the 1980 Yankees team card as well. Is that a blank back proof?

How about the Frank Thomas NNOF error? Seems they don't come up often and go for a strong price. Counterfeits are everywhere.

The toughest cards I'm looking for I don't even think exist.

Their from the 1978 Wiffle Ball set..NOT the set of individual die-cut cards that were inserted in boxes. These are the ones that were printed on the boxes themselves.

I've been collecting these since the day they came out. The boxes say there are 88 players in the set, but to date I can only identify 82 of them. The worst part is that most of the cards came five to a box, meaning it isn't a case of just one box missing since there are six unaccounted for. There were some that were issued two on a bat/ball sleeve but the likelihood of three of those being unidentified seems unlikely as well.

I beginning to think they were never produced, unless I see evidence otherwise.

I'm a "supercollector" of Josh Fogg and the majority of what I'm misssing are 1/1s or printing plates.

However, the other ones that have eluded me for over 12 years are the 2003 Donruss/Leaf Beckett Samples. They were supposed to have been produced and released in the monthly BSCM and marked with the word SAMPLE on the back. There were silver and gold versions and I believe the gold versions were something like 10x harder to get than the silver.

Either way, I've never seen any of the Josh Fogg ones.

I even emailed Chris Olds a couple years ago and he said they probably weren't even made and that the checklist for the sample sets is basically a copy of the original sets and not necessarily a list of the cards that were actually made.

The only modern set I have started trying to complete is a 2002 Leaf Certified Samples set. This is a new effort that started when I pulled out a box of Samples I bought in 2002 and thought it would be a fun set to attempt. I have only been going at it for a little over a month.

The mays is horrible as I have never even seen one. The others are scarce but attainable. The Banks and Brett are the most expensive

Al-I've got checklists, although there is some question if they are actual ones or theoretical.
Panels were issued starting in '08.
