I think there have been a few non-sport error cards of note over the years. I'm sure there is a Card Talk thread around here someplace that discussed it. It's all pretty much a thing of the past now. Printings are one and done, so you can't have a true error card unless you have a corrected card and they both made it into the product. Sometimes people still confuse variations, both the intended and accidental kind, with being errors.

Just throwing my bit in here for what it is worth. I collect Metal Gear Solid Trading Cards (1998). There are serial errors in these cards. Some very rare ones have a double stamped serial. Whether this is a correction or not is unknown. it is not like the double stamp is in secession from the first. the number is completely different. So a possible revision. Other serial errors include missing serials, upside down serials, misplaced serials. serials on front of card. All the serial errors are extremely rare except missing serials - which come up now and them.

The SWG 2 card you're thinking of is an unnumbered promo card with an Ewok attacking a stormtrooper/biker scout with a knife. In the base set (card #266) the Ewok is just raising his fist. Back when it was relatively new, some collectors called the promo, the "Evil Ewoks" card. I still see people calling it that these days.

The promo was said to have been available only as an insert in an issue of Triton magazine. I missed the issue but was able to trade for the promo later. I always thought that one would be in demand later, but from that time to today, it's been a $5-10 card from what I've seen.

So there you go, another error card that really isn't an error card. Back when they were making errors and corrected cards I used to have fun arguing with other collectors and dealers about the rare errors and variations they were always finding. Most of the time they weren't really rare and half of the time they weren't even corrected, so they couldn't be called errors, or they weren't even variations, just poor manufacturing. I remember that there were actually blank back collectors too. It's half a card. Big Grin

Oh well, some of them were rare, but unfortunately like a lot else, very few of them are worth today what was paid for them when they were originally discovered.

One of the Superman sets (Return maybe?) had two versions of two of the inserts, one with the correct reverse and the other with the reverse of the other insert.

There are also those X-Files error cards, and I believe Animal Mystic was released without the coating in error.
