Default 1952 Topps Variations - NNOF

I recently picked this '52 Topps NNOF variation. Just curious what others thought. I will chime in with my opinion at a later date.

Very neat item Zach. Is it rated A because of missing name or the auto ? Any signs of artificial removal ?

Is the deceased notification an old or new practice ?

I don't recall ever seeing one before? Very cool, if real?

Here's mine for comparison.

Collectors in the 50s and 60s often used an eraser to get rid of the facsimile in hopes the player would sign there. If you look closely, that appears to be the case here, although it backfired when the player signed elsewhere.

As an aside, I got excited when I saw the red marks at the bottom until I realized it is just his jersey markings.

Maybe it's just my image, but there's still the faint remains of the letter 'n'

You're right John, and you can still see the remnants of the bottom of the "L" from the last name, where it was too close to the bottom border of the box and couldn't be erased easily.

I have seen this on other 52s also....I agree, the Lenhardt card in this case appears to be neatly erased (at least neater than the erasing on the card below) with the intent of having the player sign in the box.
