Beckett Baseball: Ask the editor
ricochetrob Wrote:Chris,<br />
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).<br />
<br />
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).<br />
He doesn't have a regular card in the base set, (just a Gold Glove card).<br />
What's the deal?<br />
How did this happen?&nbsp; (Did Topps just drop the ball on this one?)<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
But this leads me to wonder why this 'Topps Total' series ever came to be.<br />
What was the purpose, and why was it so short-lived.<br />
<br />
Reminds me of another short-lived series, Topps Debut, 89-91 (I think).
<br />
<br />
The best answer for checklist woes is "things happen" ... sometimes players fall through the cracks for various reasons. (Swisher doesn't have a Bowman card this year and Jeter doesn't have a standard Ginter card, for example.)<br />
<br />
Topps Total was an attempt to get everybody a card and be a product that could really satisfy collectors who wanted a card for every guy on the team. It didn't last because it didn't sell well.<br />
