I was wondering if anyone here had ever come across any 1995-96 Topps Basketball cards with no number on the back? I have a Shaq card in the 1995-96 Topps basketball style like this. I am wondering if anyone here knows what this card is?

I know 1992-93 Skybox had unnumbered cards that were identical to their base sets that I think were Nestles. And in 1991-92 and 1992-93 Fleer there were unnumbered cards that were produced for food companies like Jeno's or Tony's Pizza. But in this case I cannot find anything for the 1995-96 Topps.

Here is a picture of the regular 1995-96 Topps Shaq.

http://www.tradingcarddb.com/ViewCa...995-96-Topps-279-Shaquille-O'Neal?PageIndex=3

My card is identical to this regular issue Topps card except the pictures on the front and back are different and there is no number in the little blue circle like there is for the regular Topps issue.

Does anyone have any idea what this card is? I have looked at annual guides, EBAY and the online trading card database and have come up empty. I have even checked under the year 1995 and 1996 as well as 1995-96 and struck out every time/

Any help on this identification would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you very much! I have been wondering about that card for a long time. I looked on Trading card database and they did not even have that.

I could not view the picture of the card you posted on the other site but I was wondering if your card front showed Shaq dunking with his right hand? Curious to know if our cards are the same. It sure sounds like they are.

I have been meaning to take a look at your want lists as you have some 2002-03 Fleer Tradition Basketball cards I need. We traded several years ago a few times. As a matter of fact you were living in Iowa at the time and were in the process of moving out of there I think to Ohio. That should give you an idea of when we were trading. My guess is 7 or 8 years ago.

Yes, he's dunking with his right hand.

Wow-you have a good memory! It's more around 10 years-how time flies! LMK what you need from me so I can put them aside for you.

Thanks,
Marlies

Marlies, I just sent you a pm. We can get started on another trade a decade later.

To make things a little easier for you once you get my want lists, I see you have the following 2002-03 Fleer Tradition cards I need (all are the tri rookies) 278, 283, 289, 294, 296. I need a bunch more for the 2002-03 Fleer Tradition set so if you have a lot of dups for that set, I'll be really busy hitting your want lists playing catch up.

Thanks again for the info on the mystery Shaq card.
