The card I needed was the infamous Bump Wills card. (For those who don't know Bump, he's Maury Wills son.) Despite playing for the Rangers, his card was originally printed with a Blue Jays banner across the bottom. At some point during the year, Topps corrected the card. I believe the corrected version is slightly more valuable than the error version, but I could be wrong.
I've never really been one to chase down error cards, but since both of these are affordable, I figured I might as well pick them both up. Well, thanks to reader Paul, I just completed a trade for both versions of the card. All it cost me was a handful of 1980 Topps. Thanks Paul!
