I think at this point it is 100% certain that Topps used multiple facilities to print the 1991 cards. The changes and corrections to many cards were not linear in the production timeline. For example, one can open a box with the corrected Keith Comstock that also includes the error version of, say, Ron Kittle, while another box may yield the opposite versions.
Dylan: Keep sending in those updates; I do my best to get them in the CIOMC DB for you, If something does not get added that you sent; that usually means I could not figure that out. Please feel free to PM here or Send an Email and we'll chat on those few I can't figure out

Postage stamps have longwave (blacklight) and shorwave uv markers used for automatic sorting and mailing, and there are variations that are collected/valued by stamp collectors. Some of the variations are quite interesting.

And, if you're into German stamps, some shades respond to UV, some don't. Some of the shades that do react are hard to find and a handful can be pretty expensive.

I also have a couple foreign stamps that are on paper that reacts, and one on an envelope piece that reacts. That one is from the 1880's.

On a crazy "steve" side not, some early US stamps also have shades that react or not, and I haven't found that listed in any catalog. Collecting is very different from one country to the next, stuff we tolerate is very much looked down on in most of Europe.

Like Steve B said, I have found both types in the same box. My sample size was roughly 8 3200/5000ct boxes and a dozen or so wax, jumbo and rack boxes as well as a few factory sets (they are all glow versions in the xmas set). This is just what I picked up when they were discovered/gaining traction two years ago or so. Across the board, I saw fewer non-glow backs than glow, estimate about 30-40% non glow.

One of the rarest varieties I have found is a non-glow back with a yellowish cardstock (when under the UV lamp).
I believe the glow backs are related to specific sheet something was printed on....and therefore you may find a mix of glow backs and non-glow backs in the same box. However, you wouldn't find cards from the same sheet with and without glow backs.

Regarding the sheet corrections listed above, there was an "A" sheet and an "A*" sheet. The "*" means that original sheet was updated with corrections. A sheet can also have a number of corrections, but they kept the same "A*".

I haven't seen any cards from this set showing just the sheet letter without an asterisk. Do you have, or can you point me to, an example?
