2008 Mayo Cut Plug Short Print List

I think I've finally tracked down the Mayo short print list. I've found it here, here and here and apparently it was confirmed on Beckett's My Collections site. One more lie on the Topps sell sheet though - There were supposed to be 40 short prints, but there's actually 55. Five more short prints than A&G in a set with 20 less cards. Good Job Topps. You have now completely destroyed any credibility your sell sheets used to have AND screwed up the Mayo set in the process.

The one silver lining of this is that I officially gave up on the set today and went out and picked up the one short print out of the set I really, really wanted.

Note the high number of superstars in that list. I've kind of lost track of football this year, but the only non shorted superstars that immediately come to mind are Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson and Larry Fitzgerald. You have a 1:110 pack shot at everyone on this list. Think about that when you're about to plop down your 5 bucks for a hobby pack.

I bought one retail pack of this schlock and that was enough for me. I did pull the Titanic mini though, that was pretty cool. And L.J. Smith...Rutgers-jo.

thats like most of the guys in the "player collection program", which I'm assuming was geared towards kids.

Like everything else, I seem to be out of step with everyone else as I'm going to give this set a go...so if you want to get rid of/trade your base cards you know who will take them...
