I have a 2010 Rookies & Stars Cross Training Materials Tim Tebow #10 serial numbered to /299, but the foil is gold instead of silver with 'PRIME' stamped above the jersey swatch like the prime version numbered to /50. I have not seen another one like it and I have looked.

In the price guide section of your magazine, it clearly states that 2008 UD Timeline USA baseball signatures are inserted 1:41 Hobby only. Is the magazine inaccurate or is it a case of misleading Upper Deck packaging? I cant seem to get to the bottom of this, your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I know thatthe card comes in the factory set as well, which must number into the (tens of ?) thousands. Is the MCG card worth any more, or at least destinguishable from the others?
macnicol Wrote:Chris, I have a set of early 1980's baseball cards that I can not find any info on the web. On the back of the card it describes them as "Limited Edition Super Star Credit Card Series". There are 32 cards numbered 125-001 thru 125-032. Other info at bottom back of card includes: Perma-Graphics St. Louis, U.S.A. & TOG, INC.
They are on hard plastic credit card blanks. On back it has the typical Topps stats info. Front has color picture, name, position and team.
Any help with these will be much appreciated.
I've decided to collect all the Topps of the Texas Rangers' top (games won) pitcher, according to the stats on the back of the card, for every year (going back to 1975).
No problem, as I make my list until I hit Kenny Rogers' 2005 (showing his team-leading 18 Wins for the 2004 season on the back).
He doesn't have a regular card in the base set, (just a Gold Glove card).
What's the deal?
How did this happen? (Did Topps just drop the ball on this one?)
With further research, thanks to the Beckett site (which serves my needs spectacularly), I've learned of the short lived issues of Topps Total, which ran from 2002-05, and it does have the Kenny Rogers card - so I plan to get it as a substitute.
But this leads me to wonder why this 'Topps Total' series ever came to be.
What was the purpose, and why was it so short-lived.
Reminds me of another short-lived series, Topps Debut, 89-91 (I think).

I see dealers who set out monster boxes with endless cards for people to search through, $1 boxes, binders etc. Which way do you prefer when attending a show?
