The font of the "N" on the "Kueen" front does not match the font of the other letters.

If you are insinuating that someone photo shopped "Kueen" on the front of that card pictured, I was thinking the same thing. If not, I will stand alone. As far as I know, there are no known 1955 Bowman Harvey Kuenn cards with the name misspelled on the front, I believe someone was having fun and photo shopped that card. If you blow up the name on the card you can easily tell that the font on the two E's is completely different than the KU and the N.

Absolutely, yes, it is an insinuation that something is not right (I believe it was photo shopped as well). As with others, I have never seen this phantom 3rd variation either.....maybe Darren is just having fun with us, although if he was responsible for this card, the fonts likely would have matched.

Yeah, I think our collective leg is being pulled with this obvious photo-editing job. Cliff's eagle-eyed assessment is dead on - the double E font is bogus.

Is anyone here a member of the trading card database? 6 or 7 members there have it on their list. The guy that posted the picture in 09 is still a current active member there.
