Default What is the rarest Topps card?

Posted By: D. C. Markel

OK, here's something that's currently up for auction on the Toppsvault:



DESCRIPTION: 1977 Topps Baseball Card 4-Color Film Positive! Geo. Brett (RB). Direct from the legendary Topps Vault, this auction features an original 4-color film positive for this player's 1977 Topps Baseball card. Color separation film positives were used in the set's printing process. This auction features the black tone positive. Four different colors: red, blue, black and yellow are used in this process. This rather unique collectible measures the standard 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" and overall, is in excellent condition with only minor surface wear. All Topps Vault auction lots come with a certificate of authenticity. Collectors, please visit our other pop culture and sports auctions on eBay today!


There's tons of cards that have been released in the past several years like this. As mentioned earlier, I've seen '67 Pirates Test Stickers with only one plate color used.

Looks like Seaver and Gibson were hanging out with Lou Burdette a bit.

The Seaver is from the Topps vault. They sold off another one which I believe had only one color. Mine is missing at least the black ink. I wish I could find one that had all the colors, but I've never found one and I have been looking.

I think Anthony is right that both Seaver and Gibson were doing their best Lew Burdette impersonations that year. I emailed the Topps Vault when I purchased the card to see if they had any more information, but they didn't. I think this picture is much nicer than the boring portrait that Topps actually used for Seaver in 1968. I assume that someone in quality control must have figured out what was going on and substituted the portrait for this card.
