About The Card
Baseball cards are fun, right? That's the point. Or, at least it was the point when they were first released. Now, some people can't stand it when cards stray from the traditional path. For me? With so many cards coming out every few weeks, things would get pretty boring if we couldn't shake things up a bit. (It's why I love finding sports cards with celebrities in the background.)
Anyway, it's a long-winded way of saying I'm here for George Bush being photoshopped into the Yankee Stadium stands as the Captain swings away.
As BaseballCardPedia.com says, this was the first time resorted to a gimmick in order to sell cards. The really interesting thing, though, is that unlike some of the big head and mascot cards we have seen that make up some of the funniest cards to date, this Jeter wasn't an SSP or even an SP...it was a base card. And, because the factory set featured the normal Jeter without the Photoshopped legends, it might even be rarer.
QuoteQuote"... An error card is something people, baseball card collectors, have always said to themselves, "do I put this card away, it"s an error card." Probably not with a player of this magnitude of such stature as Derek Jeter and in the New York marketplace."
