Cool color variation on the team name. I looked at several and it appears to be very common with that card.

I have a few of the darker(charcoal) colored borders. I have never seen them sell for a premium but I have never seen anyone try to either. I am sure if you pointed it out in the listing/title someone would pay a premium for them. I have seen myself and others pay a premium for much less.

I have a handful of the charcoal colored borders also, while not necessarily common, I have never seen any of them sell for a premium (yet)....

After a quick look at my 1970 set binder, I only have a #3, Chaney, and a couple of Leaders cards with the 'charcoal' look to them.

I have this one, (top left) although it is raw and was purchased like that, I personally never questioned the authenticity, but maybe I should have?

I 100% would not be concerned with it. Surely, they are just printing anomalies. I'm pretty certain I have others in my dups piles, too.

Agree with Darren. I have a couple of darker ones in my set as well.

I dunno, I had this set and have looked at many 70 BB, and only recently did I see these clearly darker borders ones, I don't think they are all that common. I'm not sure the one posted by Irv is the charcoal I am referencing

In a collection I bought a couple years ago there was 15 1970 cards and 5 of them are the dark charcoal color. The dark ones are 387, 418, 430, 437. and 438.

If anybody would like to put together a complete set of the extremely rare and highly desirable cards let me know. I would sell my 5 for an extremely outrageous price.
