I have this outrageously rare print error card. I wanted to share it with the world and people that might appreciate such an interesting and rare find. The card has been in my collection for years and didn't know what the ink marking was?
I finally happened across a CGC article and realized I had something special here. See below for the link to the CGC article (The card in the article is NOT the one for sale). The article goes on to tell how a large bug was trapped in the printer and created this near perfect image. The wings on this bug are prehistoric looking.The bottom portion looks like a cascade or waterfall effect. It's not just an error, it almost artistic.
Let's face it, it's freaking cool??? Feel free to go on the CGC site and see the scans of the card up for sale.
Just search by the ID# on the back if the slab. I decided to send my card to CGC for verification. It came back as 100% authentic a few weeks later and was stoked.Yes, I've done a lot of research and had many offers. I recently reached out to CGC directly and was referred to a professional estimator. He actually knew about the CGC "bug" article and honestly said he's never seen any error as interesting as this one. He gave me an estimate of what he truly believes this card is worth and I was blown away. He then went on to say, there's nothing out there, EVER that he can even make a 100% comp on, so it could be worth even more than his estimations. He said Goldin or Heritage Auctions might even be interested in something like this. I have a video of me flipping the card, so you can see both side together, feel free to contact me.
