  1. The only error card mentioned in this set is the Franklin Gutierrez wrong back, but I immediately found another and it’s the Jason Vargas #269 card. It too has someone else’s stats on the back someone for the Indians. I would check out the rest of the Mariners cards, there might be a trend here…

    Please e-mail me if you decide to look into this…thanks.

  2. It appears that most of the hitters’ stat lines have two entries for ‘3B’ where there 3B is listed for doubles also. Are there fewer correct cards than UER with this?

  3. How do you what or where to find the error and variations, any certain store or whatever except ebay, amazon, and card shops and shows, thanks, Clinton

  4. Clinton A Ehrhardt ยป One of the Trouts were available only in special Walmart packs. The rest are in all other packs. Other than trading or the secondary market (eBay, card shops, etc) that’s how you’ll find them.
