Gum damaged back PSA 10?
 
What on earth is this.

I believe it is the card collecting equivalent of when people would by new jeans with pre-torn holes.

Topps wants to help you relive that nostalgia of pulling a star card and finding gum stains on the back so in Topps Heritage you have.....factory generated faux gum stains!

Doesn't it make you feel like a kid again? Enjoy!

Next will be a card with solid color borders, but faux corner wear.

LOL, it is pretty creative, but I won't be impressed until they put the faux gum stains on the front of the card. :D

They call those cards "gum stained" or something like that out of the factory and therefore, the card is exactly as it came out of the pack. Guess what, nothing wrong with that grade as a 10. That is provided, all other aspects of a PSA 10 are met.

That's the stupidest thing I've seen today in my entire life.

Like paying extra for a bruised apple.

Aside from the "gum stain" variation, they pay homage to printing errors of the past like "green tints," "photo variations," "Milton Bradley backs," etc in the Heritage series of cards. When they remade the 1962 set, they added a Jackie Robinson series for the cards where Babe Ruth was featured in the real Topps set.

Think of the gum stain cards like a colored refractor, because it's a base card parallel made in limited numbers.

Most Topps cards made today have multiple parallels. They have the base flagship cards (nicknamed "paper" since they're not chrome) and then the chrome, refractor (rainbow effect tilted in light), and then multiple colored refractors.
For 2016 Bowman Draft, here is the list:
Parallels

All 200 base cards are available in the following parallels.
Silver (/499)
Blue (/150)
Green (/99)
Gold (/50)
Orange (serial-numbered to 25 copies)
Red (serial-numbered to five)
Black (one-of-one)
Chrome
As usual, the entire 200 card base set is also available in a Chrome version, which is also available in the following Refractor parallels.
Refractor
Sky Blue Refractor
Purple Refractor (/250)
Blue Refractor (/150)
Green Refractor (/99)
Gold Refractor (/50)
Orange Refractor (serial-numbered to 25 copies)
Red Refractor (serial-numbered to five)
SuperFractor (one-of-one)

If you collect every refractor version of a single card, you have "completed the rainbow". I got a red refractor of 2015 bowman draft prospect Jordy Lara and I currently have like 20 versions of the same card. Missing the two 1/1s (superfractor and metallic paper), and a 1/5 red paper.

To make it even more confusing/difficult, some of the parallels are only released in Japan.

^^This is why I quit collecting new stuff back in the late 90's when the craziness started.^^

I do absolutely love the look of all the different shiny cards. I just choose to not buy them. Instead I make my own new shiny cards based off of vintage cards I like.
