Default Is 1/1 myth?

This is just for the new age of inserts. Is 1/1 a myth?

Should I just give up my hope of every owning a card that I see listed as 1/1, or is it all a myth and in actuality there could be more of that card out there in the ether? Or are there actually 1/1 cards being released by Topps?

Yes there are real 1/1 cards out there and yes there are also 1/1 cards out there with more than 1 copy existing. At Topps recent high end event several people got 1/1 Topps cards only to find out others also got the exact same 1/1 card.LOL

Thanks for the info. I had this crazy notion of collecting every card for a specific modern player. Yes, I know the idea of undertaking such a task is insane, but it crossed my mind, and then the idea of 1/1's popped up and I realized that such an undertaking for a collector taking on such a run would be nearly impossible if said player had a 1/1 card. Kills the potential of even undertaking such a run right in its tracks.

The card companies ruined that dream over 20 years ago. All those serial #ed cards is what made me stop collecting modern stuff as a player collector. Once in a while I will buy a few cards of my favorite player. Then I realize he has not played in close to 20 years and they are still making several hundred different cards of him every year.

I will say I really like the looks of some of the new shiny cards. My problem is my ODC kicks in and says if you can't have one of each there is no reason to even buy the ones you can find. I know that may sound weird but hay we are all collecting pictures of young athletic men in uniforms and paying silly $ for them.

What's really bad are the sellers, and there are a lot of them, who claim their item is 1/1 when it's top number of the #/# that is unique. Like serial #14/200 being unigue because there is only one '14' in the limited printing of '200'.

Akin to the HR log cards of Mantle, etc.

By the way, the word 'unique' is a superlative and, therefore, needs no descriptor i.e. 'very unique'. UGH! Lesson Over!
