Default 1990 Topps Jeff King

I searched the archives but couldn't find an existing thread on this card. I'm wondering what the current consensus is as far as a theory?

I ask because I was just going through some 1990 Topps cards and decided to check the backs of them as well. I cam across a small group that had varying degrees of whiteless on the back. In some cases, the entire name had the light green coloring while in many other instances the first name had the light green while the last last name had the white.

Looking at the application splatter, I don't think the back of the Topps cards had a natural color of white or light green and that both colors were applied in different steps. Would this make sense to everyone? Am I stating the obvious that was discovered a decade ago? Am I way off?

The King is a product of a common junk era Topps print flaw type where the applied back color bleeds through the area where it shouldn’t be or where cardboard should be visible. 1982, 1988 and 1991 have had more examples pop up than others years.

The cardboard color of the name and border design on back is the stick color. They did not print “white.” I have examples of both 1990 Topps and Traded cards where they did not print the yellow ink (and where yellow made it but blac didn’t).

When you say “light green” I’m assuming you mean the yellow/highlighter color?

Arthur-- good to see the Burger guy back. I sent you an email with a scan of my King. At one time Lemke listed it in the Big Book but later removed it. I agree it is a print defect, a very rare one

Thanks, Al!

You'll all know more about this than I will. It appears in-hand as though there was a sloppy application of a color but I don't know much about the printing process so I'm sure there's plenty of other reasons for this.
