    President of Sportflics explained 1986 Robin Yount Error

    In 1986, Mr. Tom Day, President of Major League Marketing, the manufacturer of Sportflics, stated that about 50 of the Yount errors with Yankees on the back were printed but the company caught the error immediately and the error cards were destroyed. Mr. Day stated that none of the Yount errors were put into circulation. Obviously, he was wrong because over the last 25 years a small quantity of the errors have been found in the Sportflics Mylar packs. none have been found in the 200 card sets.

    Hi. Question for Ms. Bellamy. In episode 2F09, when Itchy plays Scratchy's skeleton like a xylophone, he strikes the same rib twice in succession, yet he produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a... (sniggering) magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.

    This card sold for $250 as recently as late 2010. It may not be $450 or $650, but it still worth a few bucks to a Yount, Brewer, or error card collector.

    Okay, so the "President of Sportflics" explained that none of the errors were ever released...yet we know that it was an incorrect statement as they clearly exist. So, riddle me this Sir Pimps A Lot...why should we believe his estimate on the quantity?

    Next thing we're going to hear is that Richard McWilliam never authorized the reprint of the 1989 Upper Deck Griffey rookie and Dale Murphy error cards just to pay their bills, and that he was really sincere when he stated years ago that he never knew redemptions were such an issue and would institute a policy to limit the wait time to 45 days.

    Oh yeah...sports card manufacturers...the bastions of truth.

    With the amount of stroking you've done to this card, I hope it had on a rubber.

    Dude, quit c-blocking him. He's got a card to sell here.

    No worries Jess, you'll get that $10k from someone. Maybe it'll be that Nigerian guy who emails everyone I know, wanting to give away his millions?

    What, "card-blocking" gets hit with the swear-wolf filter?

    And if you're dealing with any Nigerians, only deal with those who are displaced royalty, as they are the only honest ones.
