Default 1971 Topps #383

Hi Guys, I have looked at dozens of #383's on eBay, and I didn't see any that are quite like this. If you look at the photo, instead of being black and white, this one appears to have some colors, especially the facial skin tones.

Is this common in the 1971's? Thanks, Rick

If that's real, then it is truly something, but there seems to be a problem. The 'skin tone' actually goes into the white border a bit. That tells me it was probably colored in by someone long ago. We've all done that. But, the picture isn't large enough for me to really scrutinize it.

I looked at it under a magnifying lamp, and it doesn't appear to be colored in by a crayon or colored pencil.

It doesn't make sense that out of the 1000's of 1971's that I have handled, that this one has some color. Maybe some sort of fountain pen?

it's a rare error card variation worth about 15K, I think? you should get it graded and see it's 1 of 1.

I think it was created by a "Beauty School Dropout"...

Kind of ironic that although faint, there is probably more color in Gaspar's face as seen on the back of the card than on the front

The other problem I see is the mottled coverage of the color. If this was being prepped for printing, the flesh tone would cover the entire face/neck -- wherever the skin showed -- but it's sparse at best. Again, it seems like someone quickly colored it in. What happens when you tilt it in the light? Does that give anything away?

No, putting it under a light doesn't reveal anything.

The biggest problem I see is the skin tone goes into the white border like Darren already pointed out. Can you do a 1200DPI scan and just post the face section? That should easily show if it was added or printed.

Maybe the sun was really beating down that day at Shea.
