Default 1988 Donruss Jack Morris "Clouds" Variation

I was just sorting thru some of my 1988 Donruss cards and I may have discovered a new variation. It appears that the #127 Jack Morris card was initially printed with clouds in the background, but for some reason, the clouds were airbrushed. I've looked around on COMC and Ebay, and all I have been able to find is the airbrushed version. Is anyone else out there familiar with this variation?

I don't collect Donruss but have several Topps cards from different years in which on a recurring basis there appear to be clouds in some versions of a players card, but not in most. For me it is hard to tell if they represent a recurring print defect in some runs or instances where Topps made an intentional change to the card. For my purposes it does not matter since I collect variations and recurring variant print defects.

It does look like in your cards the clouds may have been part off the initial photo and edited out, but why would they bother with that. Is the cloud version recurring and if so what % of the cards on eBay or COMC have clouds versus do not have them ?

Ironically, the Jack Morris card is one of the toughest cards needed to complete the Topps 1982 Blackless set, especially in complete Blackless form.

Does anyone out there have an air brush ?

on COMC -- Please check out the Sold Out versions as well. If you find one in that section, please put a correction notice with what you posted. I can then add that to the COMC data base

Rich, there are no other buckets. It's a post-1980 card. Only saw the no clouds variation on COMC.

I just checked both COMC and Ebay, and all of the Morris cards are of the airbrushed(corrected) variety. I personally have 3 of the "clouds" variation and 32 of the airbrushed(no clouds) version. My guess is that it was airbrushed, for some unknown reason, very early during the print run.

Yep -- I agree with the no clouds verdict for COMC, I put a note in for the card that there are no clouds in the background. If any get submitted with the clouds, that will help to create the variation in our data base,
