4 Cent Finds: 1990 Score Ryne Sandberg Highlights Error Card

I added a few more cards to my Sparkly Lyle RC contest, so be sure to get your daily entry by commenting here.

My favorite LCS, The Batter's Box has a great dime box. It's a 3200 count box with 4 rows. One filled with baseball, one with basketball, one with football and one with hockey. The baseball row is always full. The others vary from time to time.

They also have a 5 cents or 25/$1 box. Again, it was a 3200 count box, but this one isn't separated out by sport. Mostly baseball though. I went on Friday and this box was no longer there. It was replaced with a shoebox, so just two rows. Same price; 5 cents or 25/$1, but it now stated it was all stars. There was always some good stuff, but a lot of commons as well.

I ended up grabbing 38 cards from the box. If you get 25 or more, they are 4 cents each. You don't actually have to get increments of 25 which is nice. 

I won't show all 38 cards. Most of them aren't all that exciting, but I do want to share one of the cards I got for 4 cents.

It's the 1990 Score Ryne Sandberg Highlights error card. 

To be honest, I knew that this was potentially an error card, but when I was flipping through the cards in the 25/$1 box I didn't look closely, so I wasn't sure if this was the error or corrected version. After getting home I realized that it is the "3B" error variation.

This card was hot back in the early 90's. Looking back at some old issues of Beckett, this card was priced as high as $10 for a period of time, so I was happy to find it in for a mere 4 cents.

Do you collect error cards?


  1. That's a good find for 4 cents. I didn't know it existed.

  2. I don't have an error card collection, but I have picked up specific error cards in the past... like the Billy Ripken.

  3. Didn't realize there was an error card, I'll have to see if my is that one or not.
