Well, this is ridiculous too! I know everyone is bashing the 09 Topps Ticket to Stardom, but the fact of the matter is, I kinda like them. The base that is. I know they are a little plain, but they seem to have a decent mix of players from each team, and the Nick Swisher Auto/Relic we pulled is a nice looking card (on its way to Drew). I have also seen examples like the one Beardy posted of a Markakis card that has an Angels vs. Indian stub. Strange. Tonight I came across an oddity myself, while looking on ebay for a Kurt ticket card.
Apparently Kurt was the youngest All-Star of all time since he played in the All-Star game in Oakland in 1987 and he was born in 1983! Awesome! Something else struck me as odd when I saw this ticket, did oaklandathletics.com even exist in 1987? That was my junior year in high school and I know the internet existed then, but I don't remember it much. Seems like it didn't get overly commercialized until later than that. I'm suspicious.
