You need autographed memorabilia, figures, photos,oddball and unique items like the ones I will be showing you today.
Today I am showing you what went into a few Rodney Hampton cards. The following are pre production photos used by Topps before making the cards.
Fortunately for me, I actually had a card to match with every photo I found. There was a seller on eBay who had three Rodney Hampton ones listed and all three ended up with me over time.
Back of the 1993 Topps Black Gold Rodney Hampton card with used photo. Well, with some trimming.
And boom, the perfect match. Except its missing the wonderful photo and just has Rodney floating in the sky.
I found these to be quite interesting as I always wondered how they picked photos and used them for the cards. Today I assume they must use the internet for their images which makes these even cooler because they most likely don't make these.
Well, there you have it for this weeks Rodney's Cardboard. There are plenty more oddball items ahead especially cards.
Now I have two questions before I end today,
- Have you ever seen these or own any?
- Do you think a Super Collector needs more than cards to be a Super Collector?
