I would assume they use something like Beckett, for research and ID, but, could be wrong.

Having gotten into collecting a certain player, I am astounded at the incredible variations out there...I give credit to the people at Topps for their inventiveness and creativity, really some works of art with the chrome refractors, prism refractors, xfractors and the different colors used to print the cards. It must take quite a skill to use the same pic over and over and over to come up with all these variations.

    They use Beckett but my understanding is they use several other sources (books, websites, etc.)

    Yaz Master Set
    #1 Gino Cappelletti master set
    #1 John Hannah master set

    Also collecting Andre Tippett, Patriots Greats' RCs, 1964 Venezuelan Topps, 1974 Topps Red Sox, 1968 Venz Sox

    "My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. Our childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When we were insolent we were placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds - pretty standard really."
