Take a look at the player name printed on the back of this card. Very similar to the more infamous Pancho "Herrer" error in the following year's issue, the Topps quality control team overlooked an early printing error that his distorted the final letters of Gene's first and last name. Ideal for the audacious high-grade Master Set collector, the offered variation is 1 of just 8 in its NM 7 grade at PSA with just 3 higher, a very similar statistical spread to the aforementioned "Herrer" error. No wonder collectors are willing to pay such big bucks for significantly inferior examples in the poorest imaginable grades.
