The flagship set for 2015 Topps has an error that was later corrected in the factory set that many collectors aren’t aware of. That card belongs to none other than newly-signed Washington Nationals pitcher, Patrick Corbin, card #558.
The Series Two card of Corbin that was available in packs actually features Vidal Nuno and uses the same picture featured on Nuno’s Series One card (#116). The same goes for all of the color parallels and team set variations as Nuno’s picture is featured on all of Corbin’s cards available everywhere EXCEPT in the factory set. The Patrick Corbin card available in the factory set was corrected to feature Corbin and not Nuno.
What makes that particular Corbin card (the corrected version) interesting and possibly even a tough chase is that many collectors that purchase a factory set will never open them. That means many of the corrected versions of the Corbin card will never see the light of day or be available on the secondary market.
The factory-packaged team sets also feature an error variation of the Patrick Corbin card. The Corbin card (#AD-7 – pictured below) depicts Vidal Nuno instead of Corbin.
While this is a card not highly-sought after at the moment, it may become a hot card if Corbin proves his worth in Washington with his new six-year mega-deal. Keep your eyes open for this card before it becomes a hot commodity!
