I think the green is caused by a color shift of a plate, most evident by the yellow shown at the top of the card.

The faded logo A*B* seemed strange, so I had to check my files.

The #83 Daryl Boston A*B*/faded logo isn't rare. You can find it in the mass-produced 1991 Topps Factory Set.

Oh that makes sense. You should probably notate that somewhere so someone doesn't get taken for a ride thinking that it's rare. Also, the Tracy Jones E*F* isn't on your list either. Again, that may not be rare but it should be notated.

I've also got a cello with bolds viewable through the back that I'm keeping sealed.

Arthur,

When they make corrections to the "A" sheet, they put an "*" at the bottom of the card on the reverse by the copyright logo. I am not sure how the A*B* comes about but I suspect the card was originally on the "A" sheet and then moved to the "B" sheet along with other changes.....just guessing on that though.

So the latest corrections should all be on a sheet with a "*" on it.

Thanks for responding. I should have been more articulate. I was referring to the junkwaxgems list. It's broken down by versions, like:

#146a 70 runs in 1982
#146b 20 runs in 1982

I'm assuming that in all of these instances the "a" card is the correct version and the most common?

I've heard that before, but only fairly recently.
The cards are printed on a double size sheet, 264 cards. A and B, C and D, E and F.
Usually there's only one sheet indicator, and it very nearly always has the asterix. I can't recall seeing one without it in decades.
If you notice, the A is always spaced out from the copyright when it's by itself. That's most likely from them using a pasteup that included both sheet letters, either on the original art, or on the mask. Then the one that wasn't needed was blocked out. Except for some reason in 1991 they missed it on a lot of cards.
(There are exceptions, like the year they offered a few cards for a small payment and some wrappers to help people finish sets. There was enough demand for stars that they made a special sheet)

Can someone back me up on #477 Mike Fetters?

Seems like there are versions where the banner finished in white and where his arm covers it. Also versions where the bottom of the last 'L' in Baseball is visible and versions where it's not.

This thread peeked my interest so I looked through a box to
see how many of the variations I have. I have quite a few of them
so I imagine most of them are relatively common.

Most of them are in good condition but they are curved from being
in a 5k storage box for over 25 years.

That was 1984 and I guarantee you most people who took advantage of that offer bought Mattingly and Strawberry and Boggs and Sandberg, etc.

A few people did order what was needed but most ordered the stars noted

I don't recall the exact makeup of the sheet, but it was an odd one. Mostly strips of three of the more popular stars, with a few smaller blocks or singles.

I couldn't buy the whole thing, too much for me and it was cut up for the oddball strips. I'm pretty sure I have one somewhere.
Other than the obvious needle in a haystack odds, it would be interesting to see if I can spot a difference between these specials and the regular cards. I know a lot more now, so maybe.
