Quick Look: 1998 Topps Opening Day Nomar Garciaparra Missing Cup Error

25 Apr

A recent eBay find from a set I would never have thought to investigate. Apparently, Nomar’s card was originally issued without the Topps All-Star Rookie cup on front. A very bizarre mistake for the 1997 AL ROY. Despite it falling outside of the junk wax era, I feel that it is worth inclusion here since we don’t usually see many corrections made by Topps this late in the game. Plus, who doesn’t appreciate that iconic Topps symbol!
