I recently bought a sealed 2002 Topps Factory Set (blue box). Mail has delivered and it is waiting on me when I get home. I am going to open it to see if the Pujols has been corrected. Please stand by..........

Are you sure you want to break the seal on it Shane. Sort of like driving that new car off the lot.

Risk vs reward. I already have sealed 2002 set (not blue). I got it on ebay for $44 so I figured it can't hurt.

Well.....we are no closer to solving the Pujols corrected back mystery.

First of all, no corrected Pujols. Polanco is on the back.

Secondly.....as soon as I opened it up, I realized that even if the Pujols in this set HAD the corrected back, it still would not solve the mystery in my mind. The reason is because the "blue box" factory set is the "Home Team Advatage" (HTA) Set. I did not realize this until I started looking at the cards. In my opinion, this is a parallel set and not the true base set because it has the HTA gold stamp on each card.

Interestingly enough, I actually do not have this team set. My team set collection is missing a good portion of parallel Topps and oddball Topps sets from 1999 to 2005.

Rich, if you see this........this statement is not meant to confrontational at all. I know you said that you talked to a Topps representative. Is it possible that the representative was mistaken? Might he have been considering the Opening Day Set or the Chrome set to be the corrected version? My Chrome and Refractor versions DO have the corrected back. But I have never seen nor heard of a corrected back on a base card.

I very well may do that. I may keep the Cardinals and try to sell the rest.

Shane: Actually one of my teammates spoke to Clay and he said the correct Pujols was 10 percent of the run and IIRC we ran a photo of the corrected Pujols card in the E and V column. That was more than 15 years ago though so memory does at times get slightly conflated but I remember that whole situation vividly.

There goes that confrontational Shane. Banning is the only remedy

PSA has graded 48 of the "corrected" cards. I have a hard time believing they got it wrong that many times.
