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.

Congrats to the Winners

If you are a member of Beckett.com I’m sure that you remember the box break that the football team broke a few months ago.  It probably was the most controversial box break every where Upper Deck sent Beckett two boxes of 2007 Exquisite Football cards and they pulled out the Adrian Peterson 2007 Exquisite 1/1 autographed 2 color patch.  Well, since the people at Beckett are such nice people they decided to giveaway the cards they pulled.  May 21 was the deadline for filling out the survey to enter.  The grand prize was the 1/1 Peterson, first prize was a sealed box of 2007 UD Exquisite and the second place winner got the rest of the cards from the first box.  The winners are:

Grand Prize: Ryan Cope

First Prize: Kenny Delk

Second Prize: Jimmy Wolfrey

This has to be one of the biggest card giveaways ever.  Congrats to the winners!!!!!!!
