Flashback Product of the Week: 1997 Topps ProShooters Photo Marbles


My friends over at The Cardboard Connection have recently been talking about this product, and I’ve found it very interesting.  1997 Topps ProShooters Photo Marbles is a test issue that was released in a small part of Canada.  It could have also been tested in the United States as well.  The set consists of 60 player marbles and are extremely rare.  Player collectors go nuts not only over the marbles, but the two checklists which rarely show up for sale.  Check out some of the recent sales of the checklists:

Not too bad for a couple of basic checklists.  The marbles themselves are popular too.  Check out some of these.
As you can see, these marbles may be tiny, but the price is big.  Collectors can find (2) marbles per pack.


I’ve Turned Into Where’s Waldo!

This is another photo from the Phillies dinner I attended Monday night.  The Williamsport Crosscutters posted it earlier today.  I bet you can’t find me in it.  This is not a trick.  I’m in there.  I feel like Where’s Waldo?


Flashback Product of the Week: 1985 Topps Baseball Photo Rub-Downs


Topps has literally tested millions of different ways collectors can enjoy the hobby.  Stickers, tattoos, posters, and even collectible masks have been some of the ideas they’ve ran with in the past.  In 1985 Topps released their Baseball Photo Rub-Downs product.  The set consists of 112 players featured on 32 different rub-down sheets.  If you take a coin and rub it over the paper backing of the sheet you can transfer the image to another surface.  Stuff like this was popular back in the 80’s, so it makes sense that Topps would try it.  There are 36 packs per box each containing 2 sheets.  Boxes can be found for under $10.00.
