    Just wondered if any one knew about any errors in the 1993 Pro Set Power Updates. I just bought some jumbo packs and pulled a Smith and Sanders Power Prism Combo and the back of the card seems to be upside down and is numbered 1. Then I pulled a Rison, Haynes, Pritchard, Hill Prism Combo the back was right side up and was number PC1. Didnt know if this was an error or not. Pulled a couple different Prism Combos that where also number the same way as Smith and Sanders with the upside down backs. Dont know alot about these cards, so not sure what they are.

    Looking through my 1991 Pro Set cards, I came across my Tim Brown Heisman Hero (Card #40) with no copyright information on the back of the card. NFLPA and Pro set logo, but no copyright. Can’t seem to find any info on the error anywhere. Do I have a find?

      It’s an uncorrected error UER, all copies are like this.

    P.S. I also went through my 88 topps baseball set after reading your post and found it bizarre. several of my photos were completely out of focus as if the paper shifted during the coloring step of printing. My John Kruk is f’d for accuracy’s sake. I searched around for a non factory Kruk and it was pristine. Frank Viola, the same way. Many cards have dot sections missing (reciprocal of the Jeff Reardon type error). Very odd. Can my set be an error? no, right. not all cards come from the same printing. Thanks for your blog and any info you have on my error set.

    I have a miscut Pepper Johnson pro set 1991 card no 596 and a Mike Pryor card with no text on back no 529… What are those worth? Thanks

      Hi Marc,

      Please refer to ebay completed listing for pricing info. This site is not a price guide.

      Thanks.

      I have a Darion Connor error. It has 1990, but the NFC logo is blue instead of purple and the red stat lines are all broken. I can supply pics, but this appears to be another error for this list.
