And Wouldn't You Know It...

Friend of the blog tdlindgren commented in my previous post, "Interesting how it just happens to be two of the bigger name rookie cards that are errors. Look out for a Longoria!"

Well sure enough...

We now return to your regularly scheduled blog viewing.

These should be treated as misprints, but Topps will probably announce 'we made several mistakes, but there aren't many cards like this printed.'

They acknowledge the 'errors,' which then signals their legitimacy, sending collectors [not to assume too much, but like yourself in particular] chasing after these cards in order to have a master set of cards.

MSNBC commentator and long time collector Keith Olbermann chases scarce Topps cards [i.e. 2006 Alex Gordon cut out].

I wonder if Olbermann is chasing after these gimmicks.

I think Topps printed the errors with the every day collector in mind, though I don't know how rare they are at this point.

"Accidents" happen, right?
