Anyone Remember This Promotion?

Back in 1995, in order to attract more attention to their product, Score ran a contest to win a Score Platinum Rookie Card. In the advertisement for the contest they showed a picture of Fenway Park in Boston and revealed that they planted three mistakes in the picture. If you could figure out what they were you could send a 3″ by 5″ card and a SASE to Score to receive the Platinum RC.

I found the ad. in a Beckett Baseball Card Monthly from Feb. of 1995 and I thought it might be interesting to see how many readers first remember the ad. and second can pick out the three mistakes. Here is the ad:

Some of the wrong answers I have heard over the years are:

1) no seats above the Green Monster
2) No one in the on deck circle
3) it’s not 315 feet down the left field foul line
4) the batter is outside the batter’s box

Winners would receive one of two cards, either an Alex Rodriguez card or an Ivan Rodriguez card. They are shown below:
