History of Hockey- Discrepancy b/w Sneak Peak + Actual Cards?
Being a vintage collector, was originally very excited for the History of Hockey release. Not often you have the chance to grab some of the most valuable vintage rookie cards in great shape.
I have noticed a bit of a discrepancy however... please see the ITG Sneak Peak Pic of the Richard Rookie:
Now correct me if I am wrong, but I believe only 1 of these rookies were inserted into the product? The card was pulled by a member here, and frankly it doesnt match the card above.....
Here is a better picture:
Definitely doesnt look like the same card condition wise. Please let me know if I am wrong somewhere in this, but if ITG is advertising that you can pull much better condition cards than are actually in the product, I have a bit of a problem with that, as the value difference in even the two cards above would likely be a couple THOUSAND dollars.
What do you guys think? Dont think I will be buying any more H.O.H., who knows what the main chase card, Bobby Orr rookie, even looks like (as it appears MINT from the mockups)?
Hoping this is the only card thats like this, but still a major case of false advertisement... If the other cards are like this, this product is COMPLETELY pointless to bust- why buy a case when you can buy the "chase" cards for the price of a mini case?
