Thanks to the world's greatest Alex Gordon supercollector @ian.badeer I was able to acquire this piece of collecting history. The infamous 2006 Topps Alex Gordon rookie card that was searched for and destroyed by Topps after its accidental release. #topps #errorcard #kc #royals #kansascity #collect #thehobby #mlb

So they cut the center out, but yet still released them into packs? So confused...

@carolina_collector24 no the regular card was released without the center cut out (it's more rare than this one) but Topps did their best to get the cards back and manipulate them.

@carolina_collector24 no these cards surfaced despite Topps efforts to keep them out of the hands of collectors
