Looks like Don got superimposed over this shot...

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980's.

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.

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
