Posted By: <b>Dave Hornish</b><p>These are extremely rare cards folks, some of the toughest Topps issues ever. Sflyank has often won test items I am bidding on, although I may have won a couple too <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14> I just go after commons though, not the big boys..... Some of the rarer Topps test sets only have 4-5 cards of each player known.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Thanks guys.<br />The picture on the card from the '61 dice game looks like it could have been an out-take from his '57 set card -- especially comparing by background.

Posted By: <b>Paul</b><p>Very impressive. I used to have the Dice Game Frank Robinson but traded it away in a deal for an Oscar Charleston. It's one of the ones I wish I had back.<br /><br />Anyone ever seen a 1970 Topps cloth sticker of Tom Seaver (playoff game no.l)?

Posted By: <b>Jim</b><p>Here is one of mine. Kind of a drag if you are a Bud Harrelson, Gary Peters, Vada Pinson or Catfish Hunter collector.<br /><img src="http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa21/shoelessjim/Aaron-mantle1969Toppsteststrip.jpg">
