How Does Something Like This Happen?

How does something like this happen? How, in the 21st Century, in 2013, does this sort of thing still happen? How does a card like this go from concept, to design, to proof, to print, to die-cut, to assembly, to pack-out, into my hands and then into a package headed to its new owner before ANYONE speaks up about it?

Now, I know I’m not perfect. I make just about as many mistakes as the next person. The thing is, I’m just one person. I don’t have an entire army of people looking over my work before it gets approved for public consumption (somedays I wish I did). So, how, in this day and age, does something like this happen to a hit in a high-end product?

  1. Raider Troy says:

    Not an error card I would want in a higher end product. like the sought after Jose Fernandez that was on the Mariners! They need to do something around there so that these don’t happen

  2. Kent Ritchie says:

    Just another uncorrected error. Nothing you can do about it.

  3. Because Topps sucks. Period.

  4. Jeff says:

    More proof that Topps really doesn’t give a sh*t about what they produce – just that they flood the hell out of the market to get our money.
