Default Show...me...your print variations!

A wise man on these boards once said, "if one looks hard enough, a print variation could probably be found for every card ever made". I would agree with that, and finding interesting print variations/variants/anomalies intrigues many of us. If you have recently found an interesting one share it here for the rest of us to admire!

I'll kick it off with this one I recently found...

A 1960 Charlie Neal A.S. with a solid black shadow and a transparent shadow.

Default Print Variants

I am at the stage where I wish I had limited myself to collecting variations recognized by some combination of SCD, Becketts or the Registry master lists. Of course ,once recognized they get instantly expensive unless you foresaw something you felt would get recognized later. The 61 Fairly cured me of that notion.

Some print defects I think may be unique, and therefore very rare, but, for that reason, not very collectible ( not enough of them to get hobby into them). Other print defects may be recurring but not very notable.

This Yount variant is recurring, but not very interesting ( to me)



This King variant is, to me, interesting, but apparently too scarce to be very collectible. At one time it was listed in SCD, but I think it was removed in later editions due to the fact it was viewed as mostly non recurring, or maybe not recurring enough




One of the reasons I enjoy this forum so much is that there are so many other variant collectors, like Darren, Ben, Doug and Joe here

That Frisella is cool Darren

Joe, love that transparent shadow Neal. Looks better than the "regular" issue.

Not a major print variation, but on this 61 Hoak card there is a green spot on his belt and then another green spot near the left border also. In a very quick look through ebay and COMC, out of 60+ copies I found two with the green spots.

Saved---I see the border irregularity but not the belt.

I also like cards where there are different defects on the same card

Al, just above Hoak's right hip, on his belt line (just to the left of where his black belt becomes covered by the uniform pants), there is a green print anomaly that appears on both cards. On my copy of this card, the green on the belt line is much more apparent than it appears in either of these scans.

Default Green spots

Got it thanks.

Note the 3 different sky backgrounds in the 53 Schultz and Shea cards
