Default 1973 Topps Norm Cash broken border

I just found this card looking for where I stored my blank backs. I know about Bahnsen & Bell with border breaks but this one is new to me.

In the last few issues of the Standard Catalog that he edited Bob Lemke stopped listing new and actually removed some existing border gap variant listings because his definition of a variation narrowed to eliminate unintentional recurring print defects. I do have the Cash and agree there are a bunch of the gap variants in the 73 set. Not sure if the Cash appears in the never ending variations thread.

I just broke out the monster boxes of 73s. Cheese & Crackers!! Quality control and well made plates were obviously not top order for Topps that year.
