I have a 2001 Bowman Autographs Albert Pujols.  My copy is signed in black ink but all the others I've seen were signed in blue.  Is the black more rare than the blue or were equal amounts signed?

Thanks,
George


With a card like that one, there would be an established premium for one that's known to be rarer. However, there's also the possibility (obviously I haven't seen your card) that it's not legit if it's not like others as well. Post an image, please.

Your info was passed along to the person that handles that.

Thanks,

Sounds like a version of the countless cards of Harper and other players that are made by individuals -- much like custom sketch cards artists make and sell on eBay. Unique and interesting to some people, but of little/no value to others because they are not authorized by a league, union, team or other organized body (USA Baseball for example).

It does notstate what the differences are between the two Fielder cards except that one$20 more as for Carmona cards, one is listed at $15 and the other is not listed. Can you let me know what the differences are between the highlight autograph cards? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Hi Chris:

I think my question was skipped.&nbsp; Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Joe



I haven't seen the two cards in question, however the price difference is likely tied to scarcity (as would be the one without a price). I'd do a search online and see which one pops up more often, which will likely mean it's the cheaper version. There's also the possibility that the un-priced one may not exist (announced by Topps but never made) or hasn't had a documented sale.

I was hoping to get some help identifying a card, After buying several boxes of 2004 Fleer Rookies and Greats I ended up with what I thought initally was a double of a double swatch card of Mike Hessman and Chipper Jones. I then discoverd that there were some diffencess between the two cards. Card 1 has 2 white swatches with Joneses swatch id'd as comming from his Jersey, Card 2 has Hessmans swatch being id'd the same as card one as coming from his pants, however the Jones swatch is grey and is id'd as being Game worn patch(no mention of pants)

On the back of the cards both cards state that the Hessman swatch was from game worn pants and that the Jones swatch was from a game worn jersey, the big diff on the back wast that card 1 states it is #025 of 360, card two says it is card #22 of 25 could you help me figure out what is what with these two cards... if it would be helpfull I did Photo copy the cards side by side and could send you a pic of the copy if that might help.


Thank you for your help,

Dodgeras

&lt;b&gt;Have a question about something? Post it here and I'll see if I can answer it. Who knows, it could end up in a future issue...&lt;/b&gt;

I &lt;b&gt;don't handle pricing&lt;/b&gt; ... that would be the "ask the senior price guide analyst" sticky thread to perhaps arrive over in the Beckett Baseball Pricing Forum.

I also &lt;b&gt;don't&lt;/b&gt; handle &lt;b&gt;tech/site issues &lt;/b&gt; or &lt;b&gt; customer service (subscriptions).&lt;/b&gt; Please use customerservice@beckett.com.

Other than that, I'll see what I can do...

This is one of a few new things we're going to try online in terms of reader interaction projects. We're also soon going to try some multimedia projects as well.

If you got a large quantity of problematic cards (substantial problems) pulled directly from current wax, the card companies typically will replace them. Each company's policy is different.
