Error Card for sale

Error cards listed for sale worth thousands

For some of the best sports card auctions currently listed ending today, check out our Daily Auctions page, which is updated frequently!

You would think a printing error on a sports card would decrease its value, but the so-called error card 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.

But we found the ones that are currently on sale listed by the seller for thousands. For most, it won’t ever be worth what it’s listed for but it’s interesting to see the different error cards available.

    I have an error card that nobody else has, as far as I can see from scouring the internet. It is a 1990 Donruss Mike Fetters card. 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.

    Please look at the “E” in “Expos” … I provide a short description of what I believe caused this and why this is actually a very valuable error card in the discussion on the EBAY sales page associated with the picture that link shows.

    I have a rare 1 of 1 error card with 1997 Flair Showcase Row 0 seat 2 Derek Jeter in mint condition. The card has 3 errors ! The body of. Row 1, Seat 179 Ellis Burks card is superimposed upside down on top of the front of the Row 0 Derek Jeter. Second, the back of the Derek Jeter card is the upside-down back of the Row 1 Ellis Burks. Third, the Jeter card Row 0 should be sparkly but the error card is not.

    I purchased the nonerror Row 0 Derek Jeter and nonerror Row 1 Ellis Burks cards to prove the errors. I have photos of the cards I can provide. I am interested in selling this rare card at auction.
