Default 1979 Topps "Faceless" error

So the question is does this seller really believe this was how this card came from the factory and not realize that someone did this in the after market, or is this person just hoping the buyer believes this?

I bet this was a swarm of the bugs that got the 59 Brandt card in the Variations thread

That card is actually kind of neat. A full set of these might be perfect for Ben....

Ben would know that this was erased by someone after the fact. There is no way to print like this on accident.

Not in '79 anyway. I suppose today there could be some sort of mix-up involving face recognition software.

Hey, I knew Don Hood. That isn't faceless. That is what he actually looked like.

It can go with the Damon Berryhill faceless card and Willie Burton no team on jersey cards

Very rare and very valuable I am sure.

It could* happen, something getting stuck to the paper then coming off would do it. But to have it affect a particular spot so exactly would be nearly impossible unless it was deliberate.

*Could in this case being a sort of scientific could. meaning it's technically possible no matter how incredibly unlikely. Like aliens could be responsible for ufo reports that coincide with the flight path of the Goodyear blimp.
Or I could potentially score a touchdown in the NFL. (Unlikely due to age, slowness, lack of nearly any conditioning at all, and a number of other reasons. )
