Record Sale For 1990 Topps Frank Thomas No Name On Front Error

17 Aug

Not mine, but I sure wish it was…

A benchmark sale for the Junk Wax Gem of Gems!

Truly an ode to the power of the catalog’s recognition coupled with star factor. How many unlisted printing flaws could $2K get you?

    Is the 1990 Topps Frank Thomas No Name On Front Error rarer then
    the 1989 Star Co Hensley Meulens card #99a (St. Petersburg) error ?
    the corrected card #99b says Albany instead of St. Petersburg.
    I have both variations. I have never seen any for sale in the past
    20 years.

    Holy crap!!! I bought one of these within the last year graded a BGS 8 for around $700. It is definitely a hard one to get especially graded. You just made my day…..thanks.

    I was looking to buy one last year, thought I found one for $400, but it was fake. I returned it and got my money back, but I kind of forgot about getting around to buying one. I wish I had; we’ll probably see higher prices for this one as Thomas gets closer to the HOF. I wish I had bought mine last year.

      Don’t feel too badly, dropping $400 on a card just on chance is a big risk for most of us. Especially if you aren’t a die-hard Frank Thomas fan.
