Pack Fresh Plate

Nabbed a fresh 2011 Topps Series 2 Hochevar magenta printing plate off eBay last week.

It looks good next to my Hoch base card.

But my wife is convinced that there is no way that this plate was used to make the card.

Congrats and good luck getting the other 3.

I haven't gotten a magenta plate yet.

Yeah I don't get how printing plates work. Press plates sure since the image is reversed, but printing plates don't make sense to me. So I had the same feeling when I saw my 07 Total and 09 Mayo Seneca Printing Plates. But my 03 Pristine Seneca Printing Plate makes sense haha.

I've read that plates are simply just another parallel to chase. Well four of them really. SpastikMooss is right, the images should be reversed but rarely are. I have seen some Bowman plated be reversed but not a basic Topps plate. Just another gimmick unfortunately. They are kind of cool though.
