A Cardboard Problem Group Break Haul

I was fortunate enough to have claimed the Braves in A Cardboard Problem's recent group break of a case of jumbo 2011 Topps baseball.  In addition to a slew of base cards and a few common inserts I got one of the box "hits" - a Leather Nameplate of Jason Heyward!  I watched the live stream of the break and I was very happy to see the card come out of the pack, but I didn't look at it very closely and I'm not sure others did either.  The package arrived today and after holding the card something just stood  right out.  See you if you notice:


Yup, Topps misspelled Jason's name on both the front and back of the card.  How did they get the spelling right on all his other cards from last year and this year and get it wrong here?  Come on Topps, this ain't Jayson Werth!  Regardless of the goof up it's still a very nice card and I'm happy to add it to the collection.  It ain't the best insert and it seems a lot of collectors just don't care for these manufactured cards Topps keeps releasing.  All I can say is the card looks better in person, but I won't be chasing anymore of these cards.  That said if someone out there has the Prado card let me know.


  1. Ok, I really wanted that card until about 30 seconds ago.

    Gonna chase the Burdette jersey instead.

  2. SUPER RARE ERROR EBAY 1/1!!!!!!!!!!!!
