14,000 Phillies Commentary: Uncorrected errors happen, probably far more than any of the card manufacturers care to admit. However, one comes along that’s so egregious that you really have to wonder if the company responsible actually gave a shit. Schmidt’s card is a perfect example of this. What amazes me all the more is that he actually signed each and every one of these cards (no pre-autographed stickers involved in this set). Either he didn’t give a shit either, or Topps shoveled at him sufficient cash to override any unease he might have felt over signing these cards. If there’s a greater, more obvious, uncorrected error involving a Phillies card, I cannot recall what it is at this time.
