Skip Schumacherís Rally Squirrel Card Helps Push Topps Buzz

A few 2012 Topps packs and boxes have somehow made their way into stores, but most folks won't have the chance to buy the year's first baseball card product until Wednesday. Already, though, there's a card generating mainstream media buzz. Like the Derek Jeter-George Bush-Mickey Mantle of 2007 and other subsequent manufactured oddities, the 2012 Topps Skip Schumacher/Rally Squirrel card is the hook that has Topps on the tongues and typewriters of broadcasters and writers.

The card is a short print and shows the famous squirrel that kept dashing onto the field during the St. Louis Cardinals' improbable run to the World Series.

Squirrel cards on Ebay
dielonthug
whoever shelled out 600 during that first auction thumbup.gif. but seriously cmon. These cards are hardly short printed, there are a ton on ebay right now. short printed compared to the base? yes. I wish I understood what makes these cards sell so high.

I thought this auction was hilarious:

I really don't think its a SP at all because i have seem a skip regular card only the "squirrel variations" the regular base of skip might be way more rare than the squirrel one if there even is one.

dielonthug: I love that auction that card is actually pretty cool, i hope he gets $20 for his creativity lol

I totally agree. I have seen TONS on eBay and they are all selling for high prices. I am with you, I would love to have a handful to unload. I wouldn't even be that greedy just enough to make a fast buck with all the hype.

Happy collecting!
