Just now found out about this one, COMC has it listed. The 1973 OPC #453 Checklist can be found with and without the Topps logo in the baseball, I don't know which is the error and which is the corrected, the earlier checklists don't have the logo but the later #588 checklist has it. So this makes the fourth known variation on the 1965 through 1985 OPC baseball sets that I am aware of, the shifted copyright line on the 1969 #66 Merv Rettenmund Rookies card, the two different color team names on two 1971 Pirates, #27 Gene Clines Rookies and #144 Jackie Hernandez, and now this 1973 checklist.

Nice find Cliff, I had not noticed that variation on this card before. What is weird is that on the #453 card w/o the "topps" brand name in the ball, you can see where the seams of the ball are partially missing due to the OPC guys removing the "topps" name from the checklist. I am thinking that the corrected version of this card is the one w/o "topps" on it and the original is the one with "topps" on it. My guess on the 588 card is that the OPC guys simply missed removing "topps" altogether on that card after remembering to remove it on the #54, #264 and #338 checklist cards. On the #54 card, my copy is missing part of the upper seam where the Topps logo appeared.



Another more subtle OPC variation I learned about recently is a difference in the grey on the back of the 1965 OPCs. While I would assume it is due to a difference in the card stock that was used, some cards have much darker grey backs while most have lighter grey backs. I heard from a collector who is trying to collect both colored backs for his set. He mentioned that cards 1-109 appear to be printed on these different stocks, while cards 110-283 appear to have been printed on the same stock. In my set, the lighter grey backs are far more prevalent.

And for being such a famous card, in really sharp condition otherwise, it's a really interesting one for dinner table discussions. I wonder what SGC saw to call it Authentic?
Great card, I really like print offset cards.

Not sure if this one is known yet, red line recurring print defect between the A and L in BASEBALL at top.

Looks like it might be related to this print issue, with a small line at the bottom of the card as well.

Nice; those are called "blobs" on some cards.

Similar to the recurring missing number on back of the 1969 485 Perry card, here his teammate is missing a letter of his last name in a recurring fashion.

Man, that 1973 Deron Johnson has a lot of recurring variations going on with it:
1) Left border gap
2) Black streak extending from border gap
3) Yellow smudge line across face
4) Blue bleed from top border (though much less pronounced than the Nolan Ryan)
5) Yellow dot below batting glove
6) Blue streaks on arm
7) This copy has a paintball splat (or lizard facing down) on his cap:

8) Blue lines eye level on left border

And then, you've got to marvel at his sideburns. You know he never played for Steinbrenner...

Don’t know if this has been covered before but the word “league“ is misspelled on the back of the 52 Campy. Does a correct variation exist?

Not as far as I know, but there is a back variant of the card. It is listed in the H&S super set. I would post one but it would be 214 days premature in the 52 Gallery thread

In this yellow name variation, there is another variation where the top of the 'h' in Richardson is white. Recurring print defect, as seen also in this copy.

I didn't read this entire thread, but I did do a search for Morgan and didn't see any hits for a 1966 Topps printing variation so if it is posted already I apologize.

I was looking through my 66 set in my binder last night when I saw something on my Morgan card below the S in Astros...I took it out to see if I could scrape it off and saw that it was actually red print. I looked through ebay and found the exact print error on only one other listing. I searched google images and saw another like this.


here is the one on ebay
https://www.ebay.com/itm/19379652802...MAAOSwNTpf1DJH

Here is mine and a graded one I found in google images

Default 1953 Bowman Errors

I found these print errors at a card show last Saturday. The dealer had MANY 1953 Bowman Color cards for sale.
#19 Dark has a gold and a green dot on the NY logo in the bottom example. There are MANY of these on eBay as well as the correct version.
#34 Coan has yellowish dash over the letter on the cap in the top version. I saw one of these on eBay so it is not a one-off.
#103 Ennis has a yellow dot on the cap in the middle one and a green raindrop over his left eye in the lowest one. I have seen MANY of the yellow dot versions on eBay.
#124 Dressen has a red spot on the bill of his cap in the lower example. I am not sure how many of these are out there.

This is deja vu all over again, as I think maybe this has already been posted before? It seemed quite familiar to me when I 'discovered' it.

There's a definitive black line/hair hitting Carl's hat on a good number of these cards. Seems to me it probably wasn't corrected, so to speak, but the print sheet had the card in two different positions, one with the black line and one without, and (based on a quick look at COMC) the cards were seemingly printed in equal numbers...

Not sure if this is considered a print variation or just a card that missed a certain step of the process. But I found this checklist with Checklist in red today in a random notebook at my LCS. They had the regular one right next to it. As I said, not sure if it's a print variation or it just missed a step in the process of being made.

Most non-1st series checklists from 1961-72 Topps' sets have some sort of minor variation as they were typically printed in two different series. This "variation" has been documented for years.

HOF RC Recurring print defect: magenta line extending from collar of Marc Hill. This one also seems to have a white blob next to ear, but it may just be an artifact of the photograph/scan.
The card I spotted on Blowout which led me to this one only had the magenta line:
