    Do any of these errors sale well?

      Some do, some don’t. Again, the primary purpose of the blog is to provide checklist and set information for those collecting master sets or variations.

    I have also noticed #200 Don Mattingly has a small portion of the black border in the lower right corner missing.

    I ran across this page and made a trip home at lunch to see if any of these popped out at me while glancing through my old cards that I just ran across recently. Just at a quick look, I noticed that #474 Rich Thompson has what appears to be a 0 (zero) printed on his right shoulder in the picture. It doesn’t appear to be something that I did when I was 13, but who know’s for sure! Do you think this may have been just a one time accident that is absolutely unimportant?

    Just wondering if the bottom left corner of the “A” in All Star being cut off on the #406 Joe Magrane and the #395 Jeff Russell cards would be considered an error…?
