A while back, 22 pieces of original art for Topps' "Flip-Ups" were auctioned off along with other Topps artwork. Those pieces were paired up (top of Flip-Up and inside) and were sold or currently being sold on eBay. I believe there are 12 designs in the set (perfect number for a novelty set like this), so 22 pieces would have been 11 of the 12 designs. Below are 10 of the designs in the likely checklist, with an oddball piece I have been unable to find its match. Does anyone have the image that goes along with the oddball or the missing design?

Here is the oddball, either #5 or #6 lid...
