Never Seen 1958 Topps Error card! HELP! - mejb - 07-26-2012 07:56 PM

I came across this card in a collection I recently purchased. I can't find any information on it anywhere. Several 1958 Topps set collectors have told me that they have never seen one either. Since the Herrera Error card brings big bucks, I was thinking maybe this one has a chanve to do the same. Any info/help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help!!

I think you just have a card that missed part of the ink process.

I understand that. But the Herrera Error sells for a ton and it is a simple printing defect(part of the "A" is missing in Herrera). The master set checklists I have seen for 1958 Topps lists margin variations too. Which is a printing error where the sheets weren't lined up properly when they were printed. Plus I would imagine we would have seen other cards missing the red ink if an entire sheet was printed without it. This is the only one of any player I can find missing the red ink. This thing is driving me nuts.

Im not familiar with the herrera but like beatles guy said, it looks like a misprint...... Anyhow, its only worth what somebody is willing to pay Wink

The Herrera error card has the slightest bit of the "A" missing on the front of the card. Here is a pic [Image: $T2eC16d,!zcE9s4g3hwjBQ!TfqH(Mw~~60_57.JPG]

This very slight printing error makes a $1.00 a $1000.00 card.
Anyhow, I put it up on auction so I guess we will see what it is worth.

I'm only a few cards away from the set, and I've never seen anything like it either. I just checked your auction and it looks like you've got some early action on it, too. How did you come across this card?

There are a few sites I check when accounting for errors, and this Randy Jackson is not noted on any of them. Now, if you can get someone to pay a premium for it anyway, that never hurts.

here it is: http://www.baseball-cards.com/vintage-topps-baseball-cards/1958-topps-301-randy-jackson.shtml
It is #301 from 1958 topps.
Look at their price for comparisons.

I thought the A was totally missing on the Herrera error card.
Also why didn't PSA mark it as an error?

Right...it should've been marked an error. Why would it be listed at "herrer?"
