is this legit or just a marketing ploy?

Its legit as they are direct from Topps themselves. It is a bit of a marketing ploy or purely just to get rid of proof cards etc

It's legit, anyone who doesn't like them doesn't have to bid for them, they do have a hologram on them, and they are no more of a use of factory 'leftovers' (if you like) than the four 'printing plates' issued for the majority of the cards.

The ones I've won have all been pretty low prices for what are 1/1 cards.

The platinum cards are a bigger disappointment in my opinion - insofar as they don't really have much special about them as I see it - the orange or gold ones are much nicer effects, and either of those should be the 1/1 colours.

Received a 'blank back' from Topps Authentics. Came from USA

Really well packaged, in a box, then a soft pouch, then a zip bag! The card is then in a hard clear case, which also has a Topps Authentics sticker seal.

And there's also a certificate of authenticity with it too. I think most of these are gone now but an interesting addition and an unusual variation for any collection.

Very nice indeed. Although they aren't that different from the normal cards, I still think they are a great addition to any collection and well worth the money that is paid for them. Well done.

My bids were all higher that the starting bid but still got outbid. Was surprised I didn't get the Rodriguez and Fletcher ones - I didn't think anyone else would be bothered about those! Annoying when they finish in the middle of the night and I wake up and I didn't get them!

I think i've got most of the Albion ones coming with maybe two exceptions, all reasonable prices as well and reasonable shipping

I have a Thierry one from Topps MLS. As Dorking has shown, very well presented
