From the listing:
"The Bob Dailey card is to show 350 on the back but it shows the 267 with Bill McKenzie on the back of the card.This card is not listed anywhere i have found as a error card.I have contacted Beckett & Charlton.I am still waiting for a reply back from both companys."

Gotta love eBay.

Peter,

Wrongbacks exist in just about any old topps or opc sets, especially from the 70's and 80's. These aren't common, but they aren't really that exciting. Just a printing mix-up at the factory, similar to blank backs. There's a niche for these cards, but usually only for player collectors.

As for the misspelling of "McKenzie", that wasn't corrected to my knowledge. Uncorrected errors are even less exciting than wrongbacks, which is why this post has elicited some sarcasm.

$200 for a vg 76-77 opc common wrongback is a funny concept.

got it..

got it now. thanks
find it curious that there would be a printing error on the back since they would be printed in sheets. i guess they would do a run until they noticed the mistake, and then put the cards out anyway.
appreciate the answer...and love the sarcasm.
