You would think a printing error on a sports card would decrease its value, but the so-called error cards in the hobby can actually be worth many thousands.
It makes sense on second thought with some of these error cards being extremely rare. One has the wrong birth year on the card, another has a blank back.
And there are popular ones like the Billy Ripken error card with some NSFW language on it (SHOP ON EBAY).
But we found the ones that are currently on sale listed by the seller for thousands (SEE THE CURRENT LIST ON EBAY HERE). For most, it won’t ever be worth what it’s listed for but it’s interesting to see the different error cards available.
Another note is to understand that not all miscut cards are worth more. Take baseball for example: many miscut baseball cards or misprint baseball cards aren’t worth anything even if the supply for these cards are miniscule. The demand for these cards aren’t simply there making these error card values worthless.
In any case, below are some of the more notorious error cards (and scroll down near the bottom to see Pokemon specific error cards!)
Billy Ripken error card (SHOP ON EBAY)
The Billy Ripken error card features the former Major League Baseball player that was released in 1989 as part of the Fleer baseball card set. The card became famous for an error in which a profanity was written on the knob of the bat.
The error wasn’t noticed until the cards had already been printed and released. After the error was discovered, Fleer issued a corrected version of the card with the profanity removed.
Jose Uribe error card (SHOP ON EBAY)
For some reason, this is among one of the more popular error cards many collectors search for. But what makes this an “error card” is that simply Uribe’s date of birth is incorrect on the back of the card.
Uribe was born on Jan. 21, 1959. His card says he was born a year later in 1960.
Barry Bonds 1987 Donruss Opening Day error card (SHOP ON EBAY)
If you look at the “Barry Bonds” card in the 1987 Donruss Opening Day set, the photo of Bonds might look a little off to you.
Well, you’d be right because the photo isn’t of Bonds but his teammate, Johnny Ray, instead. If you check the checklist, you’ll still see card #163 should be of Bonds but the photo won’t be his face.
Frank Thomas No Name error card (SHOP ON EBAY)
Just search “Frank Thomas No Name on Front error card” on eBay and you will see a few of this 1990 Topps cards show up listed for thousands of dollars. Why?
You’ll notice one glaring piece of information on the front of the card – his name! Instead there’s a blank spot where his name should appear.
What makes it so valuable is that this error card is rare with some speculating that there are only a few hundred in existence.
C3PO Star Wars Obscene Error Card (SHOP ON EBAY)
This isn’t a sports card but it’s definitely a popular error card, especially for the pop culture enthusiasts and Star Wars collectors out there.
What makes this card “obscene” is self-explanatory if you take a look at the photo of the card. No further explanation necessary!

Now, the card is already an error on the back showing the copyright “1989 Leaf”, but the left arm of Fetters on this card is black and white. This card was just opened last night in a pack and is clean. The discoloration has no marks on it, so you can tell it was a printing error, where color ink wasn’t applied.
