  1. The Auto tall boy rc are so scarce that the prices I have seen them is an insult . These cards are like the prize to any true collector out in the hobby !! But I have I noticed also that topps chrome is tarnishing that with there tall boy inclusion ! Topps variations of there sets is a bad in my opinion , makes me wonder of the true thought of what it takes to make a geniune set a reason for collecting to begin with !!! But again the tall boys original topps is an eye opener to me !!!

  2. Do you happen to know the print run of the #160 Robert Griffin Tall Boy auto?

    -brian =)

  3. I noticed no one knew the print run, but that was also on March 6th 2013- I am asking this question on September 11th 2014 “my honest and true to heart condolences to the memory of 9-11”
    If anyone happens to have the print run by by now it will be much appreciated and my thanks ahead of time either way.
