It is really hit or miss. Sometimes (often, at least in my case) you get nothing. You really have to search the whole lot. Once I bought a couple of cases of random cards from a guy out in the middle of nowhere. The whole lot was worthless, except for ONE card. I got the Chris Hoiles white border card, and it was worth more than I paid for the whole lot. Another time, I bagged (what turned out to be) a PSA 8 Jeter SP rookie.

In my opinion, a lot of it is about the thrill of the chase, and the little rush you get when you pull out something awesome. For me, it is even BETTER when I get some cards that someone else already looked through (like in this case), and I still find something amazing.
Others might have a different reason for it though.
I agree...it is all in the hunt. Good luck!!!

Jeff

Sorry for the low grade phone pics. Yes, I got all three versions, and then some. Also, he signed one of them.

Little did I know that a phone call that started with “What are you doing Sunday?” would end up with me having a living room full of cards.

It was/is a blast to go through. It’s always fun to buy another persons collection and go through it, even if it is mostly junk sets.

Sean, great stuff! I know I have a couple of those Jack Clark variations somewhere. Gotta find them now. Completely forgot about it.

I did a similar massive craigslist sale about 10 years ago. Sets, 3200ct boxes etc. They had to go.... Took the family out for a nice dinner that night.

Default Is this one even a thing?

Keith Comstock normal card, left.
The one on the right has his name partially printed in yellow.
Is that considered a variation? I have no idea, and I have never seen the yellow name Comstock before.

The rest of the card does not appear to be blurry, or over-struck.

Sorry for the crappy phone pictures. I will try and get a better one posted with my microscope.

Here are some pics I took under the scope to show what I am talking about.
Normal card, and then the weird one.

Just the yellow being a bit out of register.

I do not have a yellow, maybe Dylan does. But I had seen scans that seem to show it with a full yellow name. Not sure how that variant occurred or if yours is some transition card. I have all, or at least a bunch of the 1980 "yellows" and a Pryor no name but view all them as recurring print defects.

Looks like a mis-registered card to me as well. Not a yellow name Comstock. Print alignment slightly off.

Yeah, this is just an off-register one. You can find almost all of the Padres players in slight degrees of it. The yellow letter version ( I have owned three ) is the result of the yellow ink spilling beyond its intended parameters, aka into his name area. Definitely a print flaw situation, not an intended design change.
