Missing Cards in 2006 Topps Baseball and 2006 Topps Heritage Baseball
Discuss this news:
Topps announces both the recently-released 2006 Topps Baseball Series 1 and the upcoming 2006 Topps Heritage Baseball
have a missing card number. Topps Baseball does not include card #297 while Topps Heritage does not include card #255.
The Topps Heritage Chrome Parallel is also missing card number #103. The subject originally slated for the missing
card numbers was Kansas City Royals prospect Alex Gordon. But because Gordon is not Rookie Card eligible under the
new Rookie Card guidelines, he was removed. And because of a timing issue in the manufacturing process, Topps was
unable to insert a replacement subject.
Gordon has been replaced on the remaining 2006 Topps branded checklists and will be featured as a prospect card in
2006 Bowman products.
