Default color variants

Patrick---I do not disagree with you that minor color variants in the printing process are not true variations, but some collectors still accumulate them and note the differences. To each their own.

Two good examples in the 52 set are the Crandall red v orange and the Feller clear lines or hazy. Neither is really a variation, but they have had hobby recognition among some avid 52 collectors for some time.

Several of the cards in the H&G super set are of the minor color variant or stray ink dot variety. But they are recurring defects/differences and fun to run down anyway...if you have the inclination.

In any event, you have to admire the effort and dedication that went into building that set
