Lil’ Teammates Error Found In Cincinnati Best Buy

There is something wrong with this Lil’ Teammates figure.  It has a Bearcats helmet and a Texas Tech jersey/pants.  This was found in a Best Buy store in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I e-mailed the company and they confirmed that it is an error.  Their e-mail said the following:

Yep, that was an error from our manufactures.  Once a while that will happen, but we always catch it.  We are saving anything that is a “mistake” one…

This is the first time I’ve seen an error figure from them.  The Bearcats and Texas Tech have similiar colors, so I can see how something like this could happen.   Besides the 2011 All-Star Fan Fest figure they made for the All-Star game this year, this Lil’ Teammates figure pictured above is probably the rarest one to own.  Errors make for great marketing 🙂

eTopps Fraud

I am surprised this hasn’t happened sooner.  eTopps as put out an alert stating that they have disocovered that people have been scamming customers buying and selling eTopps cards.  If you look at an auction page of an eTopps card you will see that they all look about the same.  If the seller doesn’t have the card in their hands they will just use the stock photo from Topps.  Some sellers have been stealing photos from Topps and other auctions and selling cards that they don’t have.  All they have to do is a little web design to make the page look like a real auction.  One of the best ways for you to avoid getting scammed while buying an eTopps card online is checking out the card’s ID number.  On all authentic eTopps auctions the card’s ID number will show up.  For more help please read the full alert from eTopps by clicking here.
