That "ghosting" version is certainly unique, nice find! Almost reminds me of the 7th series yellow boxed checklist.

Default Red Line on 72 574

Seems harder to find one without the red than with it, and the red line seems to wander some

Jim Tyrone was beside it on the 1978 E* sheet, it has the same flaw on the left edge.

That's another registration difference. With the red printed where it should be the extra line is below the frame If the red is printed shifted up the line will be above the frame.

1973 Topps #1 - All Time Home Run Leaders (Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays)
Courtesy of COMC.com

Not mine, but I thought this card depicting Babe's booger would be of interest.. ;-)

Unlike most of my other crappy printing flaw "error" cards, I believe this one is a bona fide variation. Apparently, the early printing of the 1973 Topps Al Kaline card had a spring training photo of him with a band-aid on his forehead, someone at Topps spotted it and had it airbrushed out.

That certainly appears to be a true variation Cliff, nice job. I have not looked yet, but what pct of the copies of this card have the band-aid?
