Collectors who purchased the Topps NOW Atlanta Braves World Series Champions set quickly discovered a couple of errors on the backs of the cards.
The text indicated the Braves had won the series in 5 games and credited “manager Dusty Baker.”
Of course, the Series didn’t end until Atlanta’s Game 6 whitewash in Houston and Brian Snitker is the Braves’ manager, while Baker pilots the Astros.
After seeing some collector comments, Topps announced Tuesday that it would take the rare step of correcting the errors in the online exclusive product and would be shipping the new cards with proper copy to anyone who ordered them.
“We take pride in the quality of our cards & apologize for the error,” the company stated.
Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young now has a football card through Topps.
The company used its Bowman Next line to create a card for Young through the new NIL rules. Priced at $9.99 but available for as low as $3.50 in quantity, the card features a color image of the Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback on the front and a short bio on the back.
The back mentions Young winning college football’s “highest honor” but doesn’t mention “Heisman Trophy” likely for legal reasons.
The card is an online exclusive, available until December 20 through this page on Topps’ website.
