That looks like someone painted that on the card. Way too white to be ink removal.

Its kind of an intriguing card, but in reality it's impossible to print a card like that in 1979 (as an error during actual print production)..The guy selling that card was never a printer that's for sure..or understands the process to 4 colour lithographic printing...But a 1 off card like that is next to impossible to do...Even if the pressmen were drunk at the time..You never know there may actually be someone out there who believes its the "real deal"...

hmmmm....in 79 I was 10 years old and had literally thousands of 1979 Topps Baseball cards...don't remember the faceless Don Hood card. I did come across a few of them the other day cleaning out the garage.

Maybe I should put my 1/1 1979 Topps Gary Carter on Ebay...he's holding a flail instead of a bat...$199 seems like a real steal compared to the Faceless Hood...

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. )

Actually it's four color press. things basically don't stick to the paper, they stick to the printing plates. It would have other colors in it.

Ever have a piece of tape get into the paper stack? Or sweat on a sheet on a very hot day? Or cellophane, or powder, or ..........

LOTS of stuff can get on the paper at various points in the process. Yes, it's usually spotted and removed as defective, or comes off after one color.

And no, I don't think the card is anything but erased.

I 100% disagree, that is rattle can white paint over the face. No way that card looks like that from ink removal in my amateur opinion.

A fun fact. There is no white ink on a baseball card. All the white you see is the white card stock the other 4 colors are printed on. I have been amazed over the years how many advanced collectors thought the white on cards was printed on them.

EDIT: I messaged the seller and asked if it was semi gloss or flat white paint. If they respond I will let everyone know what type of paint it is.

I wonder how much I can get for my copy....the corners are much sharper on my copy.


Edited to add: note to self: must remember to crop out the eraser from the picture of my wanna be variation card, or just scan next time.

Awesome card Larry, is it for sale?

Seller got back to me on the original card and said it is semi gloss like the rest of the card. Still says it was factory done. TO me semi gloss means it is paint. The eraser leaves a dull finish unless reglossed.
