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.
