Spot the Error

While putting some of my Bowman prospect cards in order I stumbled across something interesting. There is an error on this card. You figure it out.

Anyone else find other errors in the 2011 Bowman Chrome?


  1. Missing card number ...

  2. go to baseballcardpedia.

    I documented all the changes to the Bowman Chrome prospect inserts from the checklist inserted in packs to the actual card numbering topps went to press with.

    there are like 7 players affected. major topps blunder. They shouldn't print those pack-inserted checklists until they have all their t's crossed and i's dotted. OTOH, it was fun project to spend an hour with the cards figuring things out so I could see if I had all the base cards for my set.

  3. No, that's just the latest unannounced parallel. 1:71 packs has an unnumbered card.

    I mean, duh.

  4. I don't know if this is an error or not.

    2009 Bowman BCP7 Matthew Moore


    2011 Bowman BCP220 Matt Moore

    Both say 1st Bowman Chrome Card, it is the same guy. Both Bio's match. I will try and get a scan up in the morning.

  5. I'd say it's an uncorrected error (I doubt the 2011 Matt Moore has a version that doesn't say "1st bowman chrome")

    I do seem to recall the home area kid has a 2009 bowman chrome card so Topps was in error in their labeling.

  6. I also beleive that, despite it being listed in Beckett, there is no 2011 Green XFractor card for Heredia (#171). I spent months trying to track this down to finish the set with no luck and lately have seen the card listed as NA on several other lists.
