Mr. Olds,

I recently purchased a 2011 Bowman (BP1) Bryce Harper NNOF. Have you heard much chatter in the community, or elsewhere, about the existence of such a card? Are there more of them out there? How does it get into the Beckett price guide? Does there need to be more than one for it to make the guide?? Obviously, it brings to mind the 1990 Frank Thomas Topps NNOF. Just curious how this Harper compares - or doesn't.

Appreciate your insight.

Sincerely,

Zelman

Would probably still need to be examined by JSA. Can't put a video in the card holder.

You'll need to put the pic in a photobucket account and link to it.

There's no way of knowing how many cards missed the foil-stamping process. Could be far fewer than the Thomas. The Thomas is listed because it is somewhat plentiful and notable for an error of that type -- missing foil would not be cataloged as it could happen to any card.

MY MARIS ROOKIE HAS THE 4 NUMBERS 9,7,4,6 WHICH AVERAGES 6.5 GRADE, BUT THE CARD IS GRADED OVERALL 4.5 GRADE ON THE LABEL? DID THEY MAKE A MISTAKE?

no. the numbers are not averaged. the card can only be as good as it's lowest grade, plus a half grade. in this case, you had a 4, and an overall 4.5

New to the site. I recently opened a 2012 Topps archives pack and inside was a 1972 Joe Morgan card. It has a gold stamp that says original. It certainly looks origional. I have been unable to find it listed anywhere. Any thoughts?

I have a 1993 Mattingly 'Then and Now' ...however the hologram is Mantle! Any thoughts on this? I cant find any info on error printing. Is this card valuable, just neat to have or what?
