    Winter Classic Jumbo Insert Error

    I was looking forward to seeing these insert cards due to the content this year. Paul Byron was going to have his first card as a Montreal Canadiens player, which is cool since he scored twice in the Winter Classic.

    Well there's cards out on eBay now. Can you see the problem?



    That's Torrey Mitchell. LOL

    They usually blame the picture supplier, they ask the picture supplier for a pic of Player X, and they supply the picture.

    QA on that would be difficult to have somebody eyeball every card in a set.

    Cheaper and easier to trust that the picture supplier has QA on their pictures considering you are paying for the picture, you would expect to get said picture.

    Yeah, that is cheaper and easier. But when you're in the business of selling pictures of players, you probably should check things like the pictures you use of the players...

    Meh, I don't work for them. If I did, I would do things much differently.

    I guess the other option for them charge more so that they can get another QA to check the photos/players. Not sure we would be happy for that either.

    But really, if you order the picture, you expect to get said picture.
    It's like ordering drive-thur, you order Chicken McNuggets, you expect McNuggets, not Fish-o-Filet. And most of us don't check at the drive-thru. Although I'm sure some of you will say you check just to prove my point wrong.
