And a second card for today, that I've shown before but belongs here. Something of a train wreck. Picked up years ago for a few bucks alongside some normal T220's from a seller who didn't know anything about the cards.

The manner in which it was acquired and that I can find nothing funky or wrong with the card on physical examination has me thinking it probably did come out of the factory this way as opposed to being a card doctor's practice card to try and remove some ink.

I kind of like the "Snow" background more than the properly printed one. Card has a Mecca Fact. 649 back.

And finally, a less cool but still cool-in-my-book Beecher card. The "silver" applied to the cards usually only varies very slightly. This one is about twice as dark as anything else in my stack of T220's or that I have seen in person. Presumably, it got some extra applied during whatever the process was American Lithographic used to apply the Gold/Silver borders on their cards. Placed alongside a few other regular Beechers to the left of it. Hope the file condensing in the website upload doesn't dilute the effect:

Top and middle cards have an ink defect on the top left of the grass.

This one is a recurring print defect or variation depending where one draws the line. I have had one of these 2 cards for a long time and thought it was just a cool one off. The location on the edge and the shape of the ink smudge was, I thought, the result of a worker at the printing shop touching a sheet that hadn't dried yet with his thumb. That there are at least 2 with the exact same smudge lends me to think perhaps it was dust or dirt on the printing plate instead. Both of these cards have Mecca 30 backs. I would love to know if anybody else has a McGrath like this, and if you do, what brand/factory
