Q & A – Is This Michael Vick Card An Error?

Errors have been around ever since the first cards were produced back in the 19th century.  Some are collectible, and others people don’t care about one bit.  I’m sorry to say the question I received today from a reader deals in the category of ones people probably don’t care about.

Here we have a standard Michael Vick 2010 Gridiron Gear base card #115.

Nothing too special about the front.  Now lets take a zoomed in look at the back side.

Notice anything?  I don’t recall Michael Vick ever playing for the Vikings.  To answer the reader’s question.  Yes, this is an error.  Is it one that will make this one cent base card worth a million bucks?  No.  Perhaps if this were the 1980’s, and Panini had stopped production to issue a correction.  Then we might have something.  But its not the ’80’s anymore.

New 2010 Topps National Chicle Football Paintings By Monty Sheldon

In January, Topps plans to release its highly anticipated 2010 National Chicle Football product.  One of the artists that worked with Topps to paint some of the base cards and inserts is Monty Sheldon, who I have interviewed for the site in the past.  Monty sent over some scans of his paintings that you could very easily see next month in National Chicle Football.  Below you’ll find some of my favorites, and you can see more of his work here.
