I was wondering if you know the answer to this conundrum...
On the Roberto Alomar 1988 Topps Traded #4T (non Tiffany) there are two asterisks in the bottom left-hand corner on the back of the card... I also have a few ‘Tiffany’ versions of this card and they do not have the two asterisks in the bottom left-hand corner on the back of the card... I was wondering if you know the meaning of the two asterisks on the non-Tiffany card. Is it to differentiate between the Tiffany and non-Tiffany cards?
One person whom I have discussed this with suggests that Topps used the asterisks as an indicator for the printer as to which card was for what process to eliminate possible over-production... However, on my 1988 Roberto Alomar Fleer Update #U-122, there are no distinguishable 'indicator' marks on any of the 'Glossy' or 'non-Glossy' cards...
It doesn't make sense to me that the marks are for the printer's FYI when the printer is the 'one' who prints the cards... If you know what I mean... If Topps wanted lets say, 20000 cards with the 'Tiffany' process, then print that amount off and coat them with the gloss finish. Then print off the 'regular' issue cards... IDK, that just my .02...
If you could shed some light on this for me I'd appreciate it...

Ditto. I have some minor team sets I would like to put out there and others I would like to fine. The minor sets I have been able to list are getting pretty well picked-through, and I would love to put up some more.<br />

A couple of days ago I asked a topic to the general public on the best way to organize a collection. I have over 100,000 cards..I'm interested on your thoughts...<br />

The site shows that the original cards were error cards, and that corrected cards were issued, but I have no way of knowing if I have the error cards or the original cards. The site gives only the following information:<br />
Card: 1991 Topps #526A Moises Alou ERR<br />
Card: 1991 Topps #526B Moises Alou COR<br />
Card: 1991 Topps #97A Brady Anderson ERR<br />
Card: 1991 Topps #97B Brady Anderson COR<br />
