We are two weeks away from the official launch date of this coming seasons flagship Baseball card set. Topps 2012 cards will go on sale on February 1st, and fans and collectors alike are counting down the days. Heck, even if you could care less you gotta look at this date as the ushering in of the new Baseball season. After all, Baseball isn't the same without Baseball cards.
With that in mind, it's not surprising that collectors slightly gasped in delight at the mention that some eBay sellers have 2012 Topps 'Gold Rush' cards for sale. See an auction, here. Photo of the cards are above.
Are these fakes? Did somebody get a little too eager and open up some boxes 2 weeks too early? These look nothing like the mock-ups for the 'Gold Rush' cards. Maybe they are redemptions? No, that doesn't make sense.
Well, a facebook page devoted to Topps cards has the story.
