Default 1991 Topps

I've got about 300 '91 Topps cello packs to rip. The list of E&V is so large I'm going to have to do it in shifts but I was wondering if someone wouldn't mind giving me a top-5 or top-10 list, if such a thing exists.

I'm assuming there is a hierarchy among them. For context, I know zero about '91 Topps E&V.

Thanks in advance,
Arthur

Arthur - Good luck. If it helps, I'm looking for 1991 Topps All Star Rookie Trophy cards MINT pack fresh and centered.
I'd pay for PSA 9/10 candidates.

PM me if you are interested in selling.

Default Topps 1991

Arthur--The 1991 Topps sets has by far the most variant cards of any Topps sets, front and back. I am positive no complete list exists. There are some threads in here on the task facing anyone who wants to put together a "master" set. While many of the variants might be viewed as only recuring print defects, the sheer number of front and back differences is daunting.

I will try to run down and post links to prior threads. There are some 1991 variations that have greater hobby recognition, like the Boyd differences, that are discussed in such threads. Also Dylan has a list of some notable variants on his Junk Wax Gems web site

Bob-- your favorite topics, errors and variations

Thanks, Al. I went back and reread the previous threads. I remembered about the Oil Can but that was about it. I was just hoping to chop the list down to, say, the rarest of the rare and look for those first. Then go back over time and look for all of the others as I sort through them.

I'm really starting to wonder why I bought 300 cello packs.

Ray, I'll put aside any that look like they've got a shot and PM you back at the ranch.

Are all A*B* cards rare or are there legitimate A*B* cards and it's just the A* sheet cards that have been seen with A*B* that are rare?

I have not followed values recently on hobby recognized 1991 Topps variations. I have seen the scarcest Boyd card go for a fairly high premium. You might do and ebay search for current and completed Topps 1991 errors and variations, with a highest price first filter. Or send Dylan, Jacksoncoupage a pm for his input, especially on the sheet designation question

Thanks again, Al. In one of the threads someone made reference to the Hoiles and Whiten as being tough so I'll add those on top of the Oil Can. I think part of this may be me stalling getting started on it. I've got a small air conditioner box filled top to bottom, side to side with cellos. I think I'll go see if my dentist can squeeze me in.

All A*B* cards rare. I recently had a small quanity that quickly sold at $5 each.

The most valued A*B* card is mostly the Mark McGwire A*B* card, which seems to never turn up for sale.

If I read the A*B* article correctly, so far they've all had bold "40th Anniversary" backs.

I just pulled a faded A*B*.

I'm 44 cellos in. I've pulled two different Oil Can Boyds, both versions of the Ryan RB, one pack of bold "40th Anniversary," and some other stuff. My question is, in that list is the suffix-a card always the correct and most common version?

I've also got a cello with bolds viewable through the back that I'm keeping sealed.

All of the A*B* cards should all have bold "40th Anniversary" backs.

I think you might have a Tiffany card, which does have a faded A*B* back. It was probably inserted into a pack by mistake. See link:

No, I'm quite familiar with Tiffany cards. I've been ripping those sets for a while now. This is a regular Topps card with the faded back and A*B*.

ETA: I just noticed my scanner blew it out for some reason and made it appear white. It's not. I'll try and get a better back scan.

ETA2: This should be better.

I'm 96 cellos in. Finally pulled a Mattingly 10 hits. Still nothing on the Whiten/Hoiles front but I think I've pulled many of the other variations. I'm surprised Topps went crazy over fixing the Whiten and Boyd cards and yet let these go.

It's a little tougher to see in the scan than in person but the mark and glove laces are definitely green. Is this a new variation or a misunderstanding of the existing?

I think the green is caused by a color shift of a plate, most evident by the yellow shown at the top of the card.

The faded logo A*B* seemed strange, so I had to check my files.

The #83 Daryl Boston A*B*/faded logo isn't rare. You can find it in the mass-produced 1991 Topps Factory Set.

Oh that makes sense. You should probably notate that somewhere so someone doesn't get taken for a ride thinking that it's rare. Also, the Tracy Jones E*F* isn't on your list either. Again, that may not be rare but it should be notated.

Arthur,

When they make corrections to the "A" sheet, they put an "*" at the bottom of the card on the reverse by the copyright logo. I am not sure how the A*B* comes about but I suspect the card was originally on the "A" sheet and then moved to the "B" sheet along with other changes.....just guessing on that though.

So the latest corrections should all be on a sheet with a "*" on it.

Thanks for responding. I should have been more articulate. I was referring to the junkwaxgems list. It's broken down by versions, like:

#146a 70 runs in 1982
#146b 20 runs in 1982

I'm assuming that in all of these instances the "a" card is the correct version and the most common?

I've heard that before, but only fairly recently.
The cards are printed on a double size sheet, 264 cards. A and B, C and D, E and F.
Usually there's only one sheet indicator, and it very nearly always has the asterix. I can't recall seeing one without it in decades.
If you notice, the A is always spaced out from the copyright when it's by itself. That's most likely from them using a pasteup that included both sheet letters, either on the original art, or on the mask. Then the one that wasn't needed was blocked out. Except for some reason in 1991 they missed it on a lot of cards.
(There are exceptions, like the year they offered a few cards for a small payment and some wrappers to help people finish sets. There was enough demand for stars that they made a special sheet)

Can someone back me up on #477 Mike Fetters?

Seems like there are versions where the banner finished in white and where his arm covers it. Also versions where the bottom of the last 'L' in Baseball is visible and versions where it's not.

This thread peeked my interest so I looked through a box to
see how many of the variations I have. I have quite a few of them
so I imagine most of them are relatively common.

Most of them are in good condition but they are curved from being
in a 5k storage box for over 25 years.

That was 1984 and I guarantee you most people who took advantage of that offer bought Mattingly and Strawberry and Boggs and Sandberg, etc.

A few people did order what was needed but most ordered the stars noted

I don't recall the exact makeup of the sheet, but it was an odd one. Mostly strips of three of the more popular stars, with a few smaller blocks or singles.

I couldn't buy the whole thing, too much for me and it was cut up for the oddball strips. I'm pretty sure I have one somewhere.
Other than the obvious needle in a haystack odds, it would be interesting to see if I can spot a difference between these specials and the regular cards. I know a lot more now, so maybe.

I am selling one of the Boyd cards within a box of 1991 Topps errors that I managed to snag from a goodwill. The Boyd I have is the one with the black banner tip and no squiggly marks on the hat.

bumping this, it's an awesome resource for 1991 topps. i do think there's a tom trebelhorn error that lists the wrong sheet letter. haven't seen one myself but heard it is pretty rare.

You've reminded me I need to find my list. Some of the stuff that's on it is on the trivial side, but there's a whole group of cards with a big spot in the 40th logo on the front.
Counting all the stuff I count, none of which are transient stuff, the list is at least double...

There's also a Randy Bush error, with and without the sheet code. Tougher card.

I found three Boyd cards in my small stash of 91s. Two are different. I did not find the variant with the black border on the flag. I'm assuming both of these are easy to find?

Keep those lists coming. I found ONE which we had not previously broken out at COMC. Got that one completed yesterday. Not just for this set but for any set; keep those variants coming and I'll keep fixing them.

And what's the deal with the bold 40th backs compared to the faint versions? Both of these Mattingly cards are the error 10 hit versions. Can all of the cards in this set be found with a bold back?

Not rare at all but a complete set (with or without variations) is tough to compile.

Only cards with an A* or B* sheet code have this variation so no, it does not affect the entire set.

These partial parallel cards are were also used for all A* and B* cards in the desert shield printing, so if you have a DS card without the bold 40th logo and it is from an A* or B* sheet, it is a counterfeit.

Found a box of about 500 1991 cards this morning in stuff I've had for years and found the Hoiles. This is fun.

Here's a question about '91s that I can't seem to find the answer to - wax boxes were made with both the old school waxed paper packs and cello style packs. Was that packaging parallel or sequential?
