Poor Curt Casali

I was looking over my Series Two cards and I took a quick peek at the checklists.  Honestly, I don't know why Topps bothers with checklists.  I don't think anyone uses them anymore.  With all the online resources, the card version has become obsolete.

Besides, if Topps is going to make checklists, they should be accurate.  I pity the poor collector that is using the checklist on the cards to put a set together.

This is the checklist for cards #568 - 639.

Take a look at card #616. According to the checklist, card #616 belongs to Rays catcher Curt Casali.

Except it doesn't.  Poor Curt got bumped by...

...Kris Bryant.

Did no one at Topps think to update the checklist?

And what about poor Curt?

Here's what could have been.


  1. For his sake I hope his card ends up in the Update set, and isn't some super rare Short Print...

  2. Yeah, Topps deserved an exclusive contract. I WANT MY UPPER DECK!
