All week long I will be showing off Andrew McCutchen baseball cards based on some of the best quotes from the Christmas comedy, Elf.
JediJeff got the ball rolling by using the line "You Sit On a Throne of Lies" when he recommended the quote yesterday.
That is certainly a funny quote and there have been some other really good ones suggested too.
Just before an epic fight between Buddy the Elf and a mall Santa, Buddy calls out the imposter Santa.
Topps has made a few errors in their production of cards over the years.
We know that Topps has made intentional errors in their Topps Heritage release to mimic the original year's errors. Some of these include the "Pittsburfh" spelling and "playing multiple infield positions". I have shown them off here.
Today though I want to look at the unintentional errors that are created because after all, they are sitting on a throne of lies.
Let's take a look at a few of them
This was an unknown error and there are no corrected versions.
Topps made a mistake in 2012 Finest when they thought they would be releasing an autographed version of Andrew McCutchen's Franchise Finest card. I wrote about it here.
To my knowledge this is the only KNOWN copy in existence, but it can be assumed based on actual production numbers from other players in the set that 15 copies were supposed to be produced with the auto.
Here are screenshots of Justin Verlander from a current $200 eBay auction.
Topps made another error when creating their 1983 inspired insert set last year in Series 1.
There are no corrected versions.
By far the biggest lie I detected among Topps cards was when I showed a green parallel from when I showed a Frankenstein card and discussed Valerie Hobson who played the Bride of Frankenstein. The card in question was a 2017 Topps Tribute jersey relic
I am unaware if Topps and MLB Authentication made more cards with mismatched authentication stickers and origins.
In April 2017 I wrote a post about the below 2013 Franchise Forerunners card featuring Gerrit Cole and Andrew McCutchen.
This was an unknown error. No corrected versions were made.
With all those Topps Lies, it is amazing that they still hold the monopoly of licensed baseball products.
Panini is known to make errors as well.
The lie occurs with the fact that it was Willie Stargell to hit those numbers, NOT Willie McCovey. "Stretch" never played for the Pirates.
This was an unknown error. No corrections were made despite the multiple parallels produced.
Panini, like Topps, has forgotten to put stickers on their cards as well.
here when Cutch was returning to PNC Park for the first time since being traded in 2018.
I hope you all enjoyed this post as I really went head first into finding some "you sit on a throne of lies" cards.
Please be sure to give me some other quotes so I can find some quotes to match up to my 2,600 unique Andrew McCutchen cards.
