1956 Topps Variations: #9 Ruben Gomez

By now you're probably thinking, I think you're pulling my leg with these variations here Ben. But you probably also think that the Topps lore about Sy Berger dumping unopened cases of 1952 high series into the Hudson River was just a hoax, and that Pete Rose didn't really bet on baseball. Hey, you can believe what you want. You know, free country and all that.

Here's the thing: I'm trying to complete the 1956 Topps master set. And that means I have to get every gray back, every white back, and every variation, including this one of Ruben Gomez. I'm out there collecting this set to the best of my ability. I mean, it's not like I'm sitting at home making up cards to add. 

That's just silly.

You pulled the Gomez card out of one of your 100 christmas rack packs. C'mon Brother
