Default Topps 1989 & 1990 Heads Up...or Big Head Suckers

I have these two sets and a couple of unopened packs, None of mine are graded, There is currently a 1989 Schmidt PSA 9 on ebay. It does not appear to have the sucker. It is my impression from the unopened packs I have that the cards came out of the pack with the suckers embedded in the card. But, maybe that is not right . Anyone know for sure ?

My question is whether these cards are "altered" if they do not have the "sucker". Or if they come without the sucker attached in the pack, does inserting the sucker alter the card? Or given the nature of the issue is it unaltered with or without the sucker ?

Does it even matter ? Does anyone really care ?

Based on the statement on the back, I would say they came with the suction cup embedded:

I cut the suction cups off mine. Does it alter the card? Probably. Do I care? No.

I don't believe I've ever seen a slabbed Heads Up! card with the sucker still attached. And yes, there is at least one other person in the universe besides you who cares.

I forgot about that issue! Thanks for sharing

I would imagine that the only way PSA could slab it would be without the sucker .... but who knows.

In any event, that is one big slab! LOL

The pack I have has the sucker attached. However, I received the pack opened so it's possible some sucker attached the sucker and then reinserted it with the sucker back into the pack. I've seen suckers with suckers and suckers without suckers but without opening a sucker's pack I think it's impossible for any sucker to know for certain if a sucker's sucker is attached or if the sucker's sucker is a loose sucker.
