I’ve had this silver variation for almost 30 years. I’ve never found an explanation and only other one I ever saw was just a common.

It would be the same for any foil stamping that is the wrong color. The prevalent theory is that the foil was put on backwards, that it is only gold on one side of the foil and is silver on the other.

Similar situation in 1993 Topps Gold but in addition to gold and silver (silver seems quite rare) there are bronze or dark gold foil stampings on those.

Looks like a stray print blemish. Doubt it was on the plate and fixed.

The raw foil has a backing to make it more durable, and to pull away the center areas. So running it upside down isn't a thing.

It's most likely that the color of the foil wasn't consistent.

So would this variation I have been considered rare or more of just a mistake?

Since there is no official hobby definition of what constitutes a "true" variation, I think you might get differing views. I would tend to view it as a print defect. But many people collect them , me included, if they are recurring. Some would say a true variation must involve an intentional change in the card by the manufacturer. But many long recognized hobby variations are clearly unintended recurring print defects. And in many cases I think it is virtually impossible to know for sure if a defect found on a card was "discovered" and corrected or just popped up accidentally on some sheets

But even a recurring print defect on a super star's card might be of interest to people who collect that player

1992 Topps 301 Kirk McCaskill with recurring corona near right ear.

I bought the two lots of 1992 Jumbo packs (60 total) from the Saco River auction last week and opened a few. The rest are going in my antique mall booth in Destin. But noticed that all three of the McCaskill cards I got had this print defect. Some of the other cards had errant vertical magenta or cyan lines, but not significant enough to report.

Did notice something interesting about the set info from baseballcardpedia:
Quote:
There were a number of uncorrected errors in the Gold set. Mark Davidson's name was accidently foil-stamped onto Steve Finley's card (#86). Andujar Cedeno (#288) is listed as a member of the New York Yankees. Mike Huff (#532) is listed as a member of the Boston Red Sox. Barry Larkin (#465) is listed as a member of the Houston Astros but is correctly listed as a member of the Cincinnati Reds on his Gold Winners cards. (See below)

The six checklist cards were replaced with six players who do not appear in the base set.

131 Terry Mathews
264 Rod Beck
366 Tony Perezchica
527 Terry McDaniel
658 John Ramos
787 Brian Williams
Checked the cards on COMC and the Larkin Winners can be found with either Reds or Astros on the gold foil. So there must have been multiple Winners runs.

But based on the bonus (replacement for checklist) cards in the ToppsGold set, you'd probably want to include them in your 1992 Topps set for completeness.

There were at least two separate runs. I no longer have my master list available but before losing that computer, I had sold two complete master sets of 1992 Topps Gold Winners and they check in well over 1000 cards.

Since that time I have casually purchased lots and attempted another build.

There are sheet code variations (C* vs. F* for example), ToppsGold watermark placement variations, ToppsGold watermark size variations, plus several various ERR/COR variation subjects.

And while I do not count them among the master set, there are silver foil variations (sold my Nolan Ryan way too cheap several years ago).
