It’s In the Cards

Blogger ranks top 10 baseball card errors

by Matthew Taylor

Last month, Roar from 34 posted some classic O’s baseball cards as part of the “Flashback Friday” feature. Now The Love of Sports has ranked the Top 10 baseball card errors of all time. Care to wager a guess at which card is No. 1?

1. Billy Ripken: 1989 Fleer

Even though the “T206 Magie” error card is worth significantly more than this one will ever be, you can’t deny the fact it’s far and away the most recognizable error card ever created. That’s right, you may remember Billy Ripken gripping a bat whose knob was infamously inscribed with the words “f**k face.” Besides that, you should also remember the many different attempts by Fleer to correct the problem, which ranged from correction fluid to air brushing, and ultimately ended up with it being covered by a black box. The white out version is valued anywhere from $100 to $120, but truth be told, no one loves this card for its monetary worth, do they?
