Error cards were fun for a bit, I think.
The prices on error cards seemingly were pretty good for some time a decade or more ago. Quality control probably ain't what it used to be since every company in the country has had to do some form of layoffs and cutbacks.
I feel as though with every set that comes out, there are some type of errors.
There is this Delmon Young card that has an error on it. Can you spot it?
Yeah, that's not his auto. Derek Jeter stickers were mislabeled and put on this card instead of Youngs, which shows a whole other problem with sticker autos, but that's a blog for another day. This card is currently up for auction
There was the Cliff Lee from this year that the airbrushing didn't catch the HK patch on his jersey. Many cards have had the wrong picture of a guy on the back (Polanco instead of Pujols on his 2001 card).
On Twitter, DragonFan96 caught this mistake when Topps was showing off some pictures from the NFL Rookie party over the weekend on Facebook.
The logo on the card is of the Rams. Now, this card clearly has an error caught before it goes to the public, but since these are on-card autos and it may not be possible to get Suh to sign all those cards again, it's probably going out that way. Ugh, if only they had sticker autos ... oh wait. Yeah, see the conundrum on that one
Obviously, we can't stop this kind of thing and, inevitably, there are going to be mistakes because we all have faults and that shows up in our work from time to time.
Are there other famous error cards that you know about? If you do have an error card and the companies issue a fixed version, do you go after the fixed one too?
