2011 Topps Heritage coin cards: turnabout is fair play.

 The 2011 Topps '62 Mint cards are selling like gangbusters on eBay. Apparently, you can collect these in two categories, and we don't just mean coins and cards. First, the easy category, which is the coins that face every which way:





Or, second, you can try to find 2011 Topps Heritage '62 Mint cards where the coins face rightside up (we like this one because Ernie is smiling AND signing, and George seems to be attempting eye contact):

I'm scrolling through looking at all the old retired guys...then Jamie Moyer...then more old retired guys.

Are there any current players, or is it all just old retired guys and Jamie Moyer?

The coin rotation kills these cards for me.

On speaking with one of our people with a connection to TOPPS, apparently the job of placing these coins into the cards was delegated to only one person who must not have had any idea with resepct to correct order nor understood the significance of placing these coins exactly ...

Seems rather strange that TOPPS then did not notice any of this until cards were packaged, sent out and then seen on the street ...

Yet again another sloppy and rather unprofessional effort by TOPPS who never seem to learn from any of these things that appear poor on their part ...

Presently, we have seen no other more current players, although Strawberry, who was also born in 1962, as was Moyer, has a card with an almost centered penny inserted ...

I just acquired the Jamie Moyer card from this set. I'll have a post up about it soon.

"A 2010 Wayne State University research project that looked into pre-1950s baseball cards of Major League players. The researchers found that the span of a players smile could actually predict the span of his life. Players who didn't smile in their pictures lived an average of only 72.9 years, where players with beaming smiles lived an average of almost 80 years."
