Default Beckett Mistake??

I was recently pricing out some cards and sorting through some stuff when I almost fell out of my chair when I saw the price on this:



Beckett has it listed NR/MT condition for $120!!! I have checked eBay and these are barely pushing pocket change in price. Anybody know what is going on??

The one that books at 120 is the Aqueous Test Gonzalez Rookie. Much different card with a reversed picture and the words "Aqueous Test" on the back.

Gotch'ya. I knew there was some catch. Thanks for ruining my pride! Just kidding, thanks for the tip.

I can't believe the error version is worth that much. I remember having several of them. I remember spending days and hours trying to find errors when i was a kid.

I'm certain that the expensive one isn't the simple Reverse Negative version that many of us had.

Ajax mentioned that it said Aqueous Test on the back. I've never seen that one.

Yes there are three 'variations' there is the ERR (Reverse Negative), COR (the one in the scan) and then the Aqueous Test which Ajax said was expensive one.

That's correct. The Reverse Negative one is rather common and books at $2.00. The Aqueous Test back is rare. Even the most common ones book 30-50 bucks each, but the bigger names/HOFers go in the hundreds, sometimes thousands. Here is an example of one:
