Nah, its better than just a regular 'ol short print. 10 years from now people will not remember who are short printed. I am sure this card will be remembered. Gotta add a few things like this along the way to add a little spice to the hobby.
Purposeful errors? Is this paying homage to the history of MISTAKES made in the past. Don't we learn from our mistakes? The reason the originals are so popular is that they were probably honest mistakes that were caught and silently corrected before word leaked out! They were ashamed of their errors in the past. Now they are marketing tools!
Things like this make me a little less proud of my hobby. When was the last time a stamp was purposely made with an error? How about a coin?
I hate the Gimmicks! I collect error cards, true errors that slip by. Not these made up scams. I will never on the Jeter copper in that Mantle/Bush gimmick. Its just another hit against the player collector, sub-set/parallel collector and so on.
