Ironic Error – NFL’s Top News All On One Card

You have to admit this error is pretty ironic.  Peyton Manning and Randy Moss were two of the biggest rookies in the 1998 Draft Class.  I have to believe that this error was made on purpose, just to bring attention to the brand.  What are the odds that this would be an accident?  Of all the rookies, it had to happen to these two.  I would think differently if it were two no name rookies, but that’s just not the case.  With Peyton Manning shopping around for a new team, and Randy Moss just signing with the 49ers, it makes perfect sense for this card to surface.  This error recently sold for $156.00.

I remember when 1998 Absolute SSD was released.  These cards with the see-through inset were quite popular.  This wasn’t the first time cards had a see-through element to them, but when compared to all the others I enjoy these the most.  They remind me of a very early version of the Shadow Box card.  They are very condition sensitive and can easily be damaged.  Its not uncommon to find them with chipped edges.
