That's correct.

Default These came from Tiffany Set.....

I have similar cards from 1985 Topps and they cam directly from a Tiffany Set. The ENTIRE set was an error with each card having a corresponding card that lined up with each other so to speak.

I was able to buy these 2 from my local dealer who saw the Tiffany Set and the guy was pulling these right from the set!

The collector only sold my local shop a few of the errors (don't ask me why he broke this unique set but oh well!). I was late to the game and only got these 2 cards.

The Pendleton front on the right is Glossy and the front on the left is not. Similar on the backs, if the front is glossy then the back is not and so forth.

I think someone in this thread mentioned the possibility of these and the 1991s coming from Tiffany Sets and I can confirm that is exactly where they originated. I of course can't be sure on the 1991s but seeing these are very similar, I'd bet that they were.

Peace, Mike

The only thing though is that these 1991 doublefronts feature different photo and design elements than the pack issued or tiffany set versions.

Ok, missed that. Different theory needed on 1991s I guess!

Thanks for pointing that out,

Mike

When I first saw this thread I thought I had one of these cards, as well but when I checked tonight I noted the card I have is actually a 1992 Topps card with Manny Lee being the regular/glossy side and Cal Ripken being the matte/dull side:

Got to check one of these amazing cards out in hand, Thanks Andy. It is my belief that they are printed on the same card stock as the All-Star Game Commemorative Set. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ken-Griffey-...3AX&rmvSB=true I compared the card stock and thickness to every 1991 Topps product I have including all the store brands they print and it was the only one that was the same exact thickness.

Thank you Ben for adding your insight. The ability to analyze them is a silver lining of them not being slabbed.
