Upper Deck 2006-07 #087/199 Pau Gasol (Error Card)

The “Sweet Swatches” card spells Pau Gaol’s first name incorrectly on the front as “Pao”. However, the back of the card does spell his name correctly. After searching eBay I couldn’t find a correct version of this card. I’m assuming a correct version of this card was never printed. After the cards were released it wouldn’t make sense to correct them since they have...

1999-00 Upper Deck #298 Tracy McGrady (Error Card)

The card on the left incorrectly lists Tracy McGrady’s last name as “Anderson” and incorrectly states his team name as the “Los Angeles Clippers.” This card was obviously the base sheet for Clippers’ guard Derek Anderson and McGrady’s information was mistakenly printed on it. As of today I haven’t been able to find a Derek Anderson error card with McGrady’s info...

According to Shay, the Jazz Bear dressed a security guard up like a priest, went over to where Seacrest and Hough were sitting courtside and got on one...

George Hill Explains the Logic Behind Wearing Jersey Number 3

  I am always fascinated why players choose the numbers they do. I asked Spurs guard George Hill via Twitter why he wears Number 3. Here was his answer: If I am interpreting this right, he wears Number 3 because his grandfather was born on the 3rd and because there are only 3 people in his family: him, his mom, and his dad. As you can see, family is very important to Hill. Every...

Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls Topps Error Card

The Topps ’93-94 No. 23 card (Jordan dunking) was printed with two different backs. The incorrect back reads No. “64″ and the correct back reads No. “23.” The No. 64 back actually belongs to the Michael Jordan 50 point club card pictured all the way to the right. For those of you that don’t believe me check out the less than professional video that I made (at the end...
