There was one booth that had both the Dear Lizzy and Amy Tan's date stamps that go back to 2007. They were $5. Unfortunately I don't remember which booth it was. Another booth had a rolling stamp with just the sayings but not the dates. They were $6 something.

Update
Just went to use my stamp and discovered that the stamp actually starts with 2012-2023 So bummed about this! The packaging clearly shows 2007-2018. Not sure what to think. Has any one else had the same issue? My kids were born in 2007 and 2009 which is why I wanted those earlier years in particular.

Update 2
Talked to Julie at AC and she is sending me a different date stamp that is back dated to 2007! I'm so excited to be able to use a date stamp with my kids' baby pictures! Awesome customer service from AC!

All my date stamps have the wrong dates on the stampers compared to what is shown on the back of the package. The only one that is correct is the Studio Calico stamper with Instagramed on it. My AC Valentine stamper doesn't list the dates on its package, but it starts in 2007.

What she said ^^^

Of course, that didn't stop me from buying all of them

I just ordered the new roller stamps from dear lizzy and yes, please. They don't have dates, just sayings. Can't wait for them to get here!

Also, they are supposed to have new "decade" date stamps by Oct. Afternoon, so I will use those with my new phrase rollers... that's the plan anyway!

I was so disappointed when I found that out so I emailed American Crafts. They said that the stamp manufacturer made the mistake. It's so unfortunate AC never had it fixed.

The good news is that there are some roller stamps out there that do have 2007.

What a bummer! I'd be annoyed too.

I bought a roller stamp from Office Max (or Depot?) years ago, and it has 2005-2011 date stamps. I wonder if you could find an older one at an office supply store.

Is this the stamp that has the day of the week then the date? Like Saturday February 2 2013?

I'm out of the loop and just discovered this, but must have one! I'm using it for PL starting this year so I don't mind about the year. But what a bummer that it doesn't match the packaging. I'm sorry

This is the neopolatin (sp) one with the pink handle. It has saying, then month, day, year. I realized later that the one I actually wanted was the Valentines one, which is sold out in my county.
I've emailed AC so we'll see if anything happens. I did specifically ask if I could exchange it for a date stamp that starts in 2007 since that was why I bought it in the first place. I've looked at local office stores but all their date stamps are current.

Great CS by American Crafts! Glad it was resolved.

I just ordered that stamp yesterday from Memory Works. We shall see what dates I end up with! Conversely I want it to start with 2013 as I'm planning to use it for Project Life

This is the picture they post but who knows which one I'll actually get? LOL:

"My name is MerryMom and I am a roller date stamp hoarder/addict".

Roller date stamps and roller phrase stamps are my one scrapbooking indulgence.

I started buying them WAAAYYY back.
