Default 1990 Topps Dennis Lamp errant mark

I was opening some older packs and I pulled this Dennis Lamp
card from one of them.

I did some research to see who was above him on the sheet but I found
out he was the top left card on the B sheet and it looks like someone
slipped with the marker when they were marking the line between the
A and B sheets.

Hi Al,

I only checked the few singles that are listed on ebay and none of them have
it. The box I have that has the 90's topps in it is on the bottom of a bunch
of other boxes but I'm going to dig it out and check mine even though
I know there's a very slim chance I would have one even if it is recurring.

I had five more Dennis Lamp cards in the box I checked. None of them
had this mark but one did have a similar mark in a different spot.

I believe that's not a mark that was on the plate, but rather a drag mark. The presses have various guides to direct the sheet to the right spot after it's printed, and there are some tinsel like things that are used to dissipate static electricity. Being near the center of the full press sheet, this is probably from the sheet rubbing on one of the strips intended to guide it onto the outfeed pile while the black ink was fresh. That should happen in a few other spots on the top row as well. Maybe a couple across each side, and near the other corners.

Like most sets this one is filled with these but here are two more I found
interesting. A quick check didn't reveal any others but they do look
like something that could be recurring.

Those come as they are pulling them off of the press. That's a mark of one of the rollers on the press.
It isn't a variation as it wasn't created that way.

I just thought it was interesting I wasn't necessarily trying to pass it
off as a variation. I'm not knowledgeable about the printing process
and I thought since it was the same width and color as the hand drawn
mark on the uncut sheet it could have been an errant mark.

Although it's a completely different time period and printing process
these T206 Mitchell's have a similar type mark that is recurring.
