    2003 Topps Gallery HOF edition variation question

    Does anyone know what the ratios are on the variations for the gallery HOF edition. I bought one of those target boxes with 6 packs and out of the 28 base cards I received 16 variation cards and 12 regular. Can that be right? Anyone know?

    Well the variations are inserted 1 in every pack.

    So you either got lucky and got more than you were suppose to or some of them are not variations.

    I thought the same thing. I checked them against the checklist in beckett and they were all variations. Weird thing is that the beckett on line price guide has all the variation prices way higher than the magazine. Even so they all sell for even less than the magazine. Cool cards anyway and I like the idea of guaranteeing a game used in a target box.

    Well you may have just gotten lucky then with a production error.

    That happened to me before. I bought some baseball packs that were suppose to have 1 RC per pack and I ended up getting about 2 or 3 in every pack. The box must have been messed up because they were short printed RCs and I was pulling them like they were common cards. Sometimes you just get lucky.

    I know Fleer did that before but I'm not sure they still do that. That was suppose to be a big selling point for their Ultra product in the middle 90s.

    Does anybody know if they still do that?

    Yeah I haven't bought a box of Fleer for a long time if you can't already tell so I didn't know if they stopped that or not.
