Tonight I spent some time organizing the Topps cards I collected during 1998 and 1999 and I came across these Nolan Ryan reprint cards.
The first one pictured here is a bit different and if I have googled correctly, its a 1999 Topps Finest refractor card reprinted in the image of Ryan's 1987 card. It differs from the three other cards in that its glossy and doesn't have the gold foil stamp. It's number 20 of the 27 reprints.
In an effort to complete both the 1998 and 1999 sets I'm hoping I can work out some trades for the Ryan cards. I'll list all the cards I need for the 1998 set and I'll post 1999 soon enough. I'm uncertain why I have the largest needs for cards numbered higher than 300 as I don't think there was a Series 1 and Series 2 back then, if anyone has any guesses or can enlighten me, please let me know.
