Default 1990 Topps Baseball Checklist Variation - Possible New Discovery

I've been recently sorting through all of my 1990 Topps baseball cards, looking for new variations, and I noticed a definite variation on Checklist #1, card #128.
The Checklist #1 cards either have "Continued On Checklist 2" listed on the reverse, or the text is missing entirely. I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this before.

Is the one on the left a Tiffany? The only one without the text on COMC is from the Collector's Edition set.

Although yours both have the D* sheet, so it looks like probably a regular Topps card.

It's definitely a regular base card and not a Tiffany!! I busted a huge batch of 1990 Topps a few years back, and I've finally gotten around to sorting them. I have roughly 70 of these Checklist #1 cards, and only 2 of them is missing the text on the back.

Do any of the other checklists have similar variations.

Hi Rich,

Based on my research, only Checklist #1 has the variation.

Did any of your cards also have the black ink missing from the Frank Thomas NNOF error run? Maybe they're part of the same print run.

Hi Swarmee,

I've been checking, but so far, none of the cards, from sheets A* thru E*, are missing any black ink on the front.
Since the Checklist #1 "missing text" variation is located on the D*(Red) sheet, I think it's completely separate from the "partial blackless" cards that are located on the F*(orange) sheet.
I do believe that this variation was caught very early in the print run and was quickly corrected. I have roughly 70 Checklist #1 cards and only 2 of them are missing the "Continued on Checklist 2" text.
