(Newser) – The Colorado Rockies love their All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki so much that at last night's game the team gave out 15,000 replica jerseys—emblazoned with his name spelled as Tulowizki. The rather large-scale typo was in fact noticed, the Rockies say, but they decided to go ahead with the giveaway anyway, reports ESPN; a new round of jerseys presumably stamped Tulowitzki will be given out in September and fans will be allowed to exchange the flubbed one. That is, if they want to: As one usher tells the AP, many "took the shirt and left. They recognized it was a collector's item. They were gone fast."

Maybe they should have done a spell check before they had the shirts printed up.

When 15,000 folks grab a shirt because it is a "collectors item" it isn't. Most collectables are things folks loved to death so few exist in good shape. Now grabbed because it is a story, that is worth a beer at the local bar if you are the first one there with it....
