Show and Tell #34: Thorzul Cheapo Group Break

I wanted to take part in Thorzul's last cheap group break but none of my favorite teams were available so for some reason I went with the Yankees. I could never root for the Yankees as a whole but I've got nothing against many of the individual players.

Here are some of my personal favorites from the about 35 cards I received:

1999 Stadium Club #75 Mariano Rivera

A classic example of a great "clean" looking Stadium Club card. The design fades to the background nicely here and allows the great photography to dominate.

1997 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #445 Andy Pettitte

I causally collect Andy Pettitte and I have to remind myself every once in a while that he's lumped in with Roger Clemens and the other steroid users. The baseball world has forgiven him for all past bad deeds.

1999 Topps Stadium Clud #35 Orlando Hernandez


I received five Derek Jeter cards that I didn't have...

1999 Topps Stadium Club #65 Derek Jeter

1999 Upper Deck MVP #T4 Derek Jeter Super Tools

1998 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #SQ6 Derek Jeter

1997 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #180 Derek Jeter

1999 Upper Deck MVP #139 Derek Jeter

Hey. I have a Derek Jeter Upper Deck 1997 card that has an error. It looks the same as every other card of the same kind that I've seen, except this one is numbered as 5 instead of 180. Every other feature of the card is normal. I was wondering how this would effect the value of the card?
