1990's basketball cards/Beckett listed, but cards never existed
Back from 1992 to 1997 I had a card store and I distinctly recall an issue of Beckett Basketball where some insert cards were listed with prices, but later revealed the checklist from Topps was incorrect. Beckett had used that checklist in their monthly magazine and included prices with them, despite the fact (later revealed) that the cards NEVER EXISTED.
I thought there'd be a huge uproar, although I guess we all knew by then they were setting prices and not necessarily reporting them. They issued an apology letter, blamed Topps and claimed the card prices were determined by "dealers who stated what they WOULD sell the cards for...", if they actually had them that is.
Anyone else recall this and what set it was? Oddly enough, even though I remember it clearly, I can't find anything online about it at all. Strange. Thank you.
