View Full Version : Two Odd Cards

10-28-2006, 04:54 PM
First is a 96/97 Tulsa Drillers card. I don't know if this is a real card or if it cut out of something else. The card is a bit thinner than a regular Topps card.

Second is a blank back Bowman's Best. The card appears to be applied over a background that is the same as the card, just lighter, as you can sort of see at the edges.

Any clue on these?

I have seen the Tulsa card somewhere and even think I have one or the ad that it came from. The Bowman has to be a flaw card that is worth keeping in your collection but not adding to a public list. I have several flaw cards that are one and done type of cards that really don't justify adding to my list but are in my card books that I'll retain in my collection.

So the Tulsa card is cut out of something else and not really a card?

I can't totally recall at this time. I'm looking to find mine so it will jar my memory.

I found the Tulsa Driller card and have it as a 1997 Tulsa Anniversary card #1

Very Glossy front for a cut out, I believe it was a stadium give away.

Not sure what to do with this one yet, needs more investigating.

Yes, he also lists the other magazine cards on his Juan Gonzalez page so this isn't 100% proof that this is a real card. Still since we do have the other cut out cards, I see no reason to exclude this one if it is a cut out.

Card added to the list.
