    Beckett - keeping track of different coloured inks?

    I was looking through beckett and saw this:
    2008-09 Ultimate Collection #99 F.Brunnstrom AU RC/ 51* blue ink /51
    2008-09 Ultimate Collection #99B F.Brunnstrom AU RC/ 48* black ink /48

    Found that interesting... I don't think I've ever seen something like that on Beckett... do you guys even care about ink colour? As a player collector, would you try and grab one of each?

  2. Find Hockey Cards on Kronozio!!

    Hmmm interesting, nice to know that they each have an individual print run and its not just random.

    I remember, years back when one player signed his BAP cards with two different colored markers. It turned out there were many blue autos and only a few black autos (...or the other way 'round...). This resulted in a premium being assessed to the limit print colors.

    I also notice the two cards you mention are #/51 and #/48. Are the cards from other players #'d to 99? Maybe they broke them up by color instead of numbering them 1-99.

    Funny, I posted this thread back in May and no one seemed to really care.

    Well, I guess Beckett cares......I like to know which ones are short printed.

    Not sure why they would do it if it so close to scarcity. I could see it if it was a big difference and could change the prices as one would be wortha premium due to being harder to get.

    The reason they did that is because a bunch of his cards were damaged so they sent a new batch to him to sign. He signed the replacements in a different color. Also note that UD made a mistake in the numbering so one half of the cards are numbered out of /99 and the other half are numbered out of /399. This was the info I got from another thread.

    Just found this (the same info that qwas posted):

    This in Tuesday night from Upper Deck
    When Upper Deck received the 2008-09 Ultimate Collection Hockey Rookie Autograph cards of Fabian Brunnstrom back, the company was saddened to see that one of the boxes containing approximately half of the cards had not sealed correctly. All the cards in that box were damaged.
    The company has contingency plans for something like this and quickly set out to reproduce those cards and have them signed by Brunnstrom. In the haste to get these cards in packs, the numbering on51 of the cards was set to 399 instead of 99. Upper Deck can confirm there are only 99 of the cards in these cards in the market.
    Worthy of note, Brunnstrom signed the first 48 cards without damage in black ink, the replacements numbered to 399 are signed in blue ink.
