My thanks to Greg and Hatorade as you two forced me to abandon the lousy research I was basing my conclusions off of and dig deeper.

First stop, BBCpedia! As usual, they did a pretty good job of answering my questions (and bringing up a few more to boot). So as it turns out, these variations do not occur for all of the FF players. For cards #641-650, all can be found with the enlarged letter on the back in white. However, only the following players can be found in grey:

642 Johnny Damon
643 Brad Fulmer
645 Derek Lee
646 Alex Ochoa
647 Alex Rodriguez
650 Preston Wilson

That's what they've got catalogued to date.

They mention that there are variations for the Rookie Class subset but don't elaborate on what they are. Does anyone know anything about these?

Could and would are two completely different things. I’ve seen more then a few time where a shortstop should be in a particular place and they are not. Jeter has no reason to be where he was when he was doing what he did.

Greg, what variation are you referring to when you show the front of the Future Foundation cards?

Again, the white letter is only an error if the card is a Silver Signature version on the front. Yours are the base cards, so they are not the error version.

Am I alone in thinking that the white letter on the back should not be recognized as the variation and, instead, it's the grey letter that should be considered the variation?

Grey letters on the back occur on ALL silver signature cards. White letters on the back occur on ALL regular base. The odd man out are the handful of regular base that have the grey letters on the back.

It should be the grey (or, more accurately, silver) letter variation.

Arthur,

The 6 cards you mentioned:
642 Johnny Damon
643 Brad Fulmer
645 Derek Lee
646 Alex Ochoa
647 Alex Rodriguez
650 Preston Wilson

I think for their base cards the most common form is the card with a grey/silver letter, but some of the factory sets contain the cards that match the other cards from the subset with the white letters. The only packs I've opened of 94 CC was when I was I kid back around 1994, so I'm not 100% on that though.

Strangely enough, the the silver signature white letter version of the Arod has a grey/silver A on the back and the Jeter silver signature white letter cards have the white D. I'm wondering if the other cards you listed come with the grey/silver letter on the back of the silver signature white letters. I have a few of the other guys in silver signature white letter, so I'll try to dig them up and check.

That very well may be. In fact, we may be looking at something that turns out to be nothing. At this point, are any of the known base cards particularly rare? Doesn't seem so at all.

• Silver Letter on Back -- Damon, Fulmer, Lee, Ochoa, Rodriguez, Wilson. All found easily enough in wax packs. I pulled 4 from the one box I opened.

• Pack-Issued White Letter -- All the players beside the above, not difficult to find, every Jeter has this. Pulled these from the same box that I pulled the above silver letters.

• Silver Letter Players with White Letters -- Damon, Fulmer, Lee, Ochoa, Rodriguez, and Wilson but instead of the silver letter that is found in packs they have the white letter and are found in factory sets.

That's it for the regular base cards. I don't believe there's been a single example of a base card deviating from those categories. If that turns out to be the case, we technically have variations but none of them would carry much of a premium as they're all somewhat readily available in existing product.

Am I wrong?

Arthur

Default variations

What is the difference between the [base future foundations] and
the [base "white letter" future foundations]? The grading companies
make a differentiation. Is this just an oversight?
