2010 Topps Turkey Red Mystery
I've only bought two blaster and two cereal boxes of Topps Series 1. Eventually I'll get around to making a post about them. But first I have a mystery (at least to me).I managed to pull 11 Turkey Red cards. 3 of them are Albert Pujols. When I started to catalogue these I started with the Pujols cards. The first thing I noticed was that unlike every other issue of Topps Turkey Red, the card had no texture. It's as smooth as a baby's bum. What gives here? When I reached for the second card, it did had the familiar Turkey Red texture, as do all of the others I have. I searched Beckett.com, Topps.com and on eBay and can find no mention of smooth Turkey Red cards. Does anybody have any thoughts about this? I suspect that I have a card that somehow missed the texturizing process but I'd like to think I have a one-of-a-kind short print.
