This is so bizarre. The three cards are from the same sheet but so far each set has only yielded one brown back card each. You would think if it were as simple as the wrong sheets getting loaded into the printer we would see more than one brown back per set. This truly is a riddle wrapped in an enigma.

Al, I just want to double check, your set is hand-collated? It's not in any kind of Fleer issued box?

It is not a factory set.

So now I'm wondering if they're available in packs. Makes no sense that someone would take a regular factory set, remove it from the box, and then sell it as a hand-collated set. The '87 Fleer factory sets had no factory seal to them so it's not like anyone would have been able to tell if they went through it or not. Your set must have been put together with cards pulled from packs.

Imagine trying to put a brown back set together.

Al, your retirement agenda is complete.

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Topps used two different stocks in its 1977 basketball set, the normal bright white and the occasional dark.

I found a similar anomaly in 1992 Topps football:



I think they just put the occasional wrong sheet of card stock into the press.
