Larry Bird/Magic Johnson Rookie Card w/o a back - cheider4 - 07-01-2012 06:18 PM

Hello,

A couple of years ago I got a number of basketball cards from an old neighbor that collected a little bit back in the 1980s. In them were a number of Topps 1980/81 basketball cards. All of the cards had blank backs and were not perforated to split the three cards up. I am not sure what they are because I can't find any information online about them. There were three Larry Bird/Magic Johnson Rc cards in the lot. Can anyone tell me anything about this card? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Well the regular issued cards were on white stock. So it probably wasn't a printing error as it would still be on white card stock. Are the cards the same size as regular ones from the same set? There are a few different ones you have? IDK what they are but perhaps printing proofs? If you would be interested in trading one of the Bird/Johnson rookies I would be very happy to get one as I collect oddball and error stuff and these certainly qualify!

I believe they are the same size of the original but I am not sure. Thanks for your offer of trading for one but first I would like to find more info about them. I do not collect basketball cards but I am interested in baseball cards. Thank you for your help.
