OK time for a small bit of info I just gathered on this (I think) sweet looking stuff. I busted a Box about a month ago and pulled a Cerlton Fisk GU'd, a Kat (softball player) Auto, some older Hockey great Auto and what I figured was a decent hit a Certified Cut (CC-8) Dick Vitale Auto (#'d 7/10)--SWEET (or so I thought).
Imagine what I thought when I saw another Dick , #CC-8 #'d 07/10 on ebay!!
An obvious mistake in printing--or was it ? My thinking was that there were 10 different cut sig's and each had a different saying. Upon calling Donruss it turns out that Certified Cuts #CC-8 is indeed ran at a quanty of 10
the card #'d CC-8 (#'d to 10) appears in the following
Certified Cuts 2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11 thus equaling 100 Certified cuts of Dick Vitale. The customer support person verified just that
So I researched a cpl more players and it doesn't add up. For instance Dennis Rodman is shown at having a card #CC-7 with a sequence or 40--yet in the Certified Cuts 2 group he has a sequence of 20 and he shows up on no other list!!! So where are the other 20 Cuts? Or are there actually 60 Cuts--40 in the main Certified Cuts and 20 in Certified Cuts 2 ?
SO BUYER BEWARE--because
HERE is the real question to ask when buying or trading for a Cut--Exactly how many exist ? It's like the Tootsie Pop--the world may never know!!
I think it's crap that they KEPT all the different Vitales (or whoever) at their original card #'s (CC-8) and then broke them down into different subsets---you would figure to at least to NOT have them all remain at their original #'s (CC-8) --shouldn't they have at least marked them CC/ CC1/ CC2--etc. then the number 8 (if that makes any sense).
Thanks for the chance to RANT and sorry for the long read (I've had term papers take up fewer space back in the day )
