the foil is not an error according to what I've read so far. the did all sorts of variations with the lettering and back ground colors (gold, white & silver) on the inserts not sure about the base set.
in my opinion they need to get away from having so many inserts and worry about the quality of the rest of the set.

Here's a site which lists all Series 1 cards. That's why I only buy a factory set each year.

This is totally ridiculous.

Plus their quality control and proof reading is also terrible. Topps should be embarrassed.

It's true but people like myself will keep buying. Topps has a monoply on the baseball card world. A lot of guys don't even look at the other baseball stuff out there right now because its just the players in generic uniforms. For instance panini (Donruss) really had the first Mike Trout card in 2008 where as bowman didnt have his first until 2009. That auto books anywhere from $100 to $500 but panini books significantly less. The only good thing about it is that it stops there from being soooo many cards like in the 80's and early 90's.

I don't have the complete set to check all the cards but the following have errors on the back in the section called " Career Chase " # 's 5,16,27,128,186,230,240,293 and 322. I'm sure there are more.

I find it interesting that the cards mention the player who holds the All-Time Record, ie Home Runs Barry Bonds 762, Cy Young 511 wins etc. , but with the All-Time Hit Leader 4256 they never mention (Pete Rose). Is he banned from Baseball Sets also , even mentioning his name ?

i haven't seen rose in any of the newer Topps products since i got back into collecting 4 years ago.
i wonder if anyone has even brought this up to Topps. i should hit them up on twitter and let them know how many statistical errors they have. twitter is the easiest way to get in touch with them I've found
