Default 1958 Free Felt Initial Card

On this card, you will notice at the left of the off-focus version that most of the phrase "GET YOUR INITIAL FREE!" is present. On the back of the cards (both are ON focus) that phrase exists at the top. I did not scan the back but can, if needed. I am curious about this card. Was the card double-printed with one version turned over so the phrase is next to the obverse of the other? Has anyone obtained an uncut sheet of 1958 Topps Football cards?

Here's an odd pair of variations. 1970 card #401, Giants Rookies, comes in the 'regular' version (not shown), plus (top) with a black 'pinhole' beside the 'G' in 'Giants' and (bottom) a UFO buzzing above the baseball in Harrell's hand…

Here's one of my favorites! Griffith missing the ti. I think I've seen only 4-5 of these.

Default 1963 #133 Freese

Notice in the left version that the bat has gray in it. This is recurring and some are on COMC and eBay currently.

That is an awesome print offset. They are from when the press is getting set up and not properly adjusted yet. Most left out the back door and very few with a print offset that big left the factory in a pack.

Those are among my favorite cards to collect.

Default Yellowless??

Came across this card, it appears to be "yellow-less"....my expectation/experience would be for the red to fade before the yellow and since I am not seeing any fading on the red, I feel this "yellow-less" state of this card is due to factory print issues versus post factory fading.

The copy on the right's red is fairly close to the red on the left's copy, so if there was fading involved, the red on the left copy should appear much more faded than the right copy.

Anyone else seen another "yellow-less" 58 Topps card?
