Baseball cards that don't seem to actually exist
GeorgehenryCollec had a great thread in the football section that resulted in a lot of cards being found so I thought it would be a good idea to have a baseball one.
What cards seem to not exist even though they are listed on an inventory or a checklist? Post here and maybe a member can help you find it!

I firmly believe this card was never made:
2007 Upper Deck Premier Emerging Stars Autographs Dual #CS Shin-Soo Choo/Grady Sizemore
There's supposed to be 4 versions: /50, /25, /10, and /1
I've never seen one and have been keeping an eye out since 2008. I'd love for someone to prove me wrong! Would love to acquire one.

Pretty Much I would have say alot of the 2008 UD Documentary AUs. Reason is simple when I check the prices of the ones I need still like Derek Jeter,Ken Griffey Jr,Nick Swisher they aren't no longer listed hhhmmm and I know they aint no common players the last time I checked. Heres what I am still trying to locate for my master set of them. If anyone has them let me know I like to trade for them
Ken Griffey Jr.
Alex Romero (Need the one that is labeled RO on the back thanks!)

2012 Bowman Chrome Miles head refractor auto. Beckett says it exists. I've seen the base auto, and the colored refractors. I've never seen the /500, and I've been looking.Collecting pre-war, vintage and modern baseball cards.

Alex Romero - Doesn't say if this is the RO or AR numbered card though.

John Smoltz 2002 Leaf Rookies and Stars #124A John Smoltz Tigers SP
2002 Leaf R&S had short prints of players who had played with other teams (a pretty cool concept) but this Smoltz version seems impossible to find. He was drafted by the Tigers and traded to the Braves before he ever played a game for them. I've seen other people unable to find this card after going after the set but then I've seen some people claim to have pulled this and got rid of it on other forums. Never seen a scan of it though so until then I'll put it into the "doesn't exist" column until I see one.
