I stumbled across this one on eBay, I don't know whether to call it the Flying Saucer, UFO, or Comet version.

Snagged an Aker for $1. I swear this thread provides 20% of my total mail. Thank you all for sharing

All of those Jack Aker cards will disappear once the men in black see them. But it's okay because you'll never remember that it existed.

I just picked one up too before the bright red flash thankfully.

It also looks like there is a white dot variation too. One of the autographed ones looks to show a white dot in the same area.

Edit: It is a print mark, but there are a couple do have them.

It the spirit of Ozzy Osborne: "I think it's ball lightning."

As a Cardinals team set collector why do I check this thread? Now I've got to go find that Joe Torre MVP variation!

Shane---since most of the defect occurs on the non Torre side maybe you can pass on this one

Even if you avoid this thread in the future one of us will let you know if another Cardinal pops up

Yellow sun at top border of this Yost is a recurring print defect.

Not sure if these have been mentioned previously but went through a stack of ‘55 Topps I rescued from a local seller and found two print variations.

1) Lou Limmer #54 can be found with a broken team logo box and a full complete box. On ebay, out of about 100 examples, I saw about four broken box examples.

2) Bob Purkey #118 can be found with and without a distinct blue dot next to his armpit. On ebay, this variation is pretty close to 60/40 with the blue dot variation having a slight edge.

Check out this '72 Brock with the back of the card bleeding through to the front. I've had this card in my collection for 49 years and never noticed it before now. This thread has changed the way I look at cards!

Yep, most people usually call those "wet sheet transfers" and they're sometimes found on T206 cards.

Here's a fun one. This defect is recurring, though the exact placement of the black splotch over Hamilton's face changes. I though it was a one off for awhile, but I've seen a few, and seen this black ink splotch problem on 0 other cards in the set.

On the Purkey, I don't think there is a no dot version. It looks like it is either this big bold blue dot, or a fainter greenish dot in the same location (attached). Anyone have a true 'no dot'?

I have the blue and green/yellow dot versions. No dotless

Wonder if card was originally printed with the blue defect and there was later intervention to mask it some. No way to know I guess

Here is apparently one of two versions of this card in which the stats in the 3B column are obscured....does anyone have a copy of the "other" version of this obscuration?

This 1970 Topps #670 Ron Santo shall forevermore be known as 'Ron Splotcho.' Check out the lower left corner of the white bordered box. The first card is the 'normal' version and the other three have a large, dark splotch in that grey area, running into "Ron." It doesn't affect the white outline of the box at all, but it seems to go hand in hand with the darkened area of dirt in that same area...

1970santosplotch.jpg

Here's a better/larger representation...

They're very easy to find, so not much of a rarity.

I had come across this example a while ago.
Someone spilled the blue ink on Bruce's card. Front, top left. No bleed through on the back. And it is interesting to me that it is contained to the picture and no bleed over onto the white border.

The card was printed that way, it’s one of my favorite types of print errors and I grab them if they are priced fairly.

Not a true variation but nonetheless a magnificent specimen this group may enjoy.

Well, I must have gotten it from a pack then. I did not buy it and it was in my 1970 cards that I have lugged all over the nation between then and now.

Cheers,

#698 Tom Tresh is the counterpart to the Santo, they were side by side on the sheet.

Here's a recurring defect I found looking through my dad's cards, where the text is repeated. I also found a Harmon Wages (also a Falcon) with a similar variation, though not as pronounced.

You are spot on as I did a cloud of my two and see a goldish dot that replaced the blue one. It is likely an attempt to get rid of the blue one.

The Santo was the final card I needed 25 years ago when I completed my set - I always thought I had one with a unique stain on it, but I guess not - and it is interesting that it doesn't obscure the white border at all. I checked and sure enough my Tresh is similarly stained.

I just noticed on your blown up images that there is a second smaller spot of blue, on both your copies, by his armpit area. I will have to pull mine and look at others to see if this is consistent on all cards.

Seems odd they would not just cover up the spot with white ink, instead of the yellowish greenish goldish color. Can't really think of another good explanation for it than what you propose.

Default Defect in the second degree?

I was checking for 1967 defects on eBay tonight, and this posting for #214 Dick Kelley gave me a good chuckle.

(The 3rd Series checklist #191 comes in two versions, with #214 as Dick Kelley or correctly as Tom Kelley.)
