A limited number of cards featuring Razor-exclusive player Wade Miley, a pitching prospect in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, were inadvertantly released in 2008 Playoff Prime Cuts.
Donruss issued this statement Tuesday:
Due to a production error at the time of pack-out, some 31 copies of a Wade Miley card mistakenly were inserted into packs of 2008 Playoff Prime Cuts Baseball.
Donruss officials believed they had a deal with Miley during the production cycle of Prime Cuts, but when it became apparent Miley was exclusive property of another manufacturer, Donruss pulled Miley cards before pack-out.
“These few just slipped by,” a Donruss representative said. “It’s an honest mistake, and one we regret.”
There are no Miley autograph redemption cards.
