Upper Deck 2006-07 #087/199 Sweet Swatches Error (Front)

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...

1999-00 Upper Deck #298 Tracy McGrady

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...

George Hill Explains the Logic Behind Wearing Jersey Number 3

October 6, 2010
