Definative guide to the 2010 Topps #661 Stephen Strasburg cards

Due to an overwhelming demand for Stephen Strasburg cards during his phenomenal 2010 rookie season, Topps extended its original 660-card set by an additional card for Strasburg. Due to the legalities surrounding the MLBPA-licensed set, Topps was not allowed to include Strasburg in the original 660-card set until he debuted in a Major League game. In order to meet the demand for Strasburg, Topps offered six different versions of card #661 in the Topps set.

This guide is intended to educate you on the various versions of the #661 card of Stephen Strasburg in 2010 Topps.

Version A

Randomly inserted into 2010 Topps packs were redeemable code cards for their Million Card Giveaway promotion. These code cards allowed for you to unlock version A, which ended up being exclusively available on through this promotion. The card features a photo of Strasburg taken during his first MLB pitch.

Find 2010 Topps Stephen Strasburg Version A on eBay.

Version B

This version was announced as a late addition to remaining 2010 Topps factory sets. A telling characteristic of this version is locating Strasburg’s right hand directly under the Topps logo in the upper left hand corner.

Version C

Identical to version A, except the card features an on-card autograph. Once again, exclusively offered to those who unlocked version A through the Million Card Giveway, owners were given the opportunity to have the card autographed. Each card was machined stamped, and has a production of 299.

Version D

Available in packs of 2010 Topps Update.

Joe McKnight 2010 Exquisite Auto Variations

After scouring eBay for a few days after the release of 2010 Exquisite Football I began to notice a few things with Joe McKnight’s Rookie Patch Autos. Each of them had a slight variation in the signature. See below:

Joe McKight 2010 Exquisite #4 Variation

#25 Variation
No Number Variation

It looks as if he signed some of them with his USC #4, his Jet’s #25, and some with no number at all. I sent a tweet to @UpperDeckSports asking if they had any idea on the print run variations, however they responded with:

We are not reporting the totals on each variation he signed, rather letting the market determine the scarcity levels.

Based off eBay sales alone, the #4 variation has the perceived scarcity over the two variations.

I haven’t noticed any other variations yet in any other 2010 Exquisite Football cards.

Panini Announces 2010 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket Auto Variations

Late last week, we gave you a sneak peek at Panini’s 2010 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket Autograph set. Today, we are bringing you some interesting news and an interesting twist on these Rookie Ticket Autos. It appears as if there are two versions of some of the on-card Rookie Ticket Autos. It has yet to be confirmed which version may be a short-print (SP).

The product officially hits the shelves today, so we should be able to get an idea if one version is more of an SP than the others as more of the cards hit eBay.

Check back for updates to this developing story.

Panini recently released images of the 33 on-card autos that will be available in their upcoming 2010 Playoff Contenders release. The cards, which pay subtle homage to the 1998 release of Contenders Football, feature large crisp images of each player along the left side of the card and continue with the ticket theme along the right side with stadium and team information. The card also features a bold, on-card autograph on the bottom of the card.

Contenders Football is always a fan favorite, and the 2010 set looks to be as great as any.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead’s first NFL trading card

It’s the type of story typically written just in Hollywood. An undrafted, undersized, unrecognizable, and very unnoticed athlete shoots into superstardom. The New England Patriots Danny Woodhead, who rewrote the NCAA records book out of Chadron State (Nebraska), was one of the best kept secrets during the NFL preseason, until the Jets had to cut him to make room on the roster. The only thing he has done since signing with the Patriots: Produce.

He was rookie last year, but did not have any NFL licensed sports card, until now. Woodhead is not completely without a card, he has an autographed version from Sage that is slowly becoming worth its weight in gold. Panini has announced that Woodhead will be in their upcoming 2010 Contenders release, slated for release on February 6, 2011.

Topps recently announced that the 2010 No. 1 draft pick of the Washington Nationals will be part of a sneak preview of the company’s 2011 Diamond Anniversary autographs in Sterling. The first one to hit eBay should fetch a pretty penny.

Harper, who is signed to Topps exclusively for autographs and memorabilia, signed a total of 60 cards with three inscriptions – “Happy 60th Topps”, “Happy 60th” and “Happy Birthday Topps.”
