Baseball Card Mystery - Ryan Theriot

The 2008 Topps Chrome Card of Ryan Theriot has a rookie card logo on it. That would be ok if not for the fact that Ryan was not a rookie. His rookie logo cards are from 2006. It appears that he was on 2 cards in 2006, with the rookie card logo (Fleer Ultra and Topps 1952 rookies). Is it possible that Topps forgot in 2008 that Ryan already had a rookie card. Ryan did not appear in the regular Topps or Topps Chrome sets in 2006 and 2007. He did appear in the 2008 Topps set but without the rookie card logo. I checked the internet and could not find any answer to the reason why his 2008 chrome card had the rookie card logo on it. Was this just a mistake and or did Topps just forget that Theriot was not a rookie..

The other odd fact about 2008 Topps Chrome was that all cards numbered 192-220 were rookie cards except card 194 of Adam Jones. I am assuming that some rookie card was pulled at number 194 and Adam Jones was inserted in his place. Was Theriot supposed to be card 194 instead of card 172 or was it someone else.   The Mystery remains…………
