Earlier today I was sorting through some cards and ran across this:
I picked this up as tradebait, as everyone knows there are quite a few Dodger collectors out there and I figured a Hershiser insert for a quarter would be a nice addition to a trade package. I looked closer at the card and what do you see along the bottom but San Francisco Giants listed as Orel's team. I know he was with the Giants during this season and I am sure Dodger fans were not too excited about Hershiser joining the Giants. I can tell you that Giants fans weren't overly enthusiastic either. With 3 years with the Indians between his Dodger and Giant years you wouldn't think this would happen to a card.
This card is basically the reverse of this card:
As I was mulling this over I decide to flip the card over and see how it was numbered and if the back explained why a card celebrating the Dodgers 1988 World Series would list the Giants as his team and look what I found:
So team collectors, what do you do with cards where the uniform doesn't match the team name? Do you keep them in your collection? Even if it is your arch rival?
