Default 1966 series 5

Found what appears to be a recurring print defect on two 1966 series 5 cards. Both #371 (Stange) and #381 (Fischer) appear to have a yellow streak, as noted. Both of these cards are in column 9 on the print sheets. Other cards in this column include #379, 440, 410, and 437 but I haven't see that defect on those cards.

As shown in post 1641 he can also be found with blue/green blob on chin, scarce recurring. Had not noticed line on Stange but in checking my set I have one. Now I need a normal one :-{

1966 Topps #437 (Stanek) also has a blue blob on it. That card is also in column 9 of the sheet. Interesting!

Default 1962 #293 Miller

This is sticky-tacky, but a difference nonetheless. I have annotated them to show the differences. The top two have a RED dot by his head, but the bottom two have a grayish dot. The top left has a blob by he's ear and the bottom right has a green paint spot in his hair. All are readily available from the usual sources.

Recurring red print defects at bottom center border and just below the W in Williams.

And the 57 posted in the separate thread seems to have errant green and yellow marks. Have not checked to see if recurring

And this one, mentioned by a blowout user, is the recurring print line at the top of the image.

Like I said, I wasn't looking for it. A blowout guy thought the card was perforated by the look of the print line having teeth at a regular interval. ;-)

Over the years I have seen many copies of this extremely common card, but today was the first time I have seen copies of this card with areas of excess black ink. On the COMC copy, the excess black ink completely obscures the "S" in Reds.

Is this a repeating variation (1974 Topps #351 Dwight Evans Red Face)? Here's mine along side the one that VCP has as its "exemplar" and one that I found during a quick Google search.

Saw this on eBay this week..the almost white 'yankees' at the bottom has me very interested but the top left looks like the old rounded rectangle sticky tags put on a penny sleeve left some resistance to fade? I didn't see this on others I searched for...maybe it started out light already as the rest of the card is still sharp? Thoughts?

At first glance the Stottlemyre looks faded and does not appear to be missing a print run....I have found other cards that look as though a print run of one of the primary colors (yellow) was partially missed. This card below, at least in hand, appears to be missing the yellow run on part of the card creating a unique WL card not due to fading.

I wouldn't touch that Stottlemyre with a 60 foot 6 inch pole.

Here are two 75 Hillers with the varying sized "white cloud" print variation. While the clouds vary in size, the darker than the rest of the sky blue tail that circles clockwise around the right side of the "cloud" is present on both, but this tail does not appear on much more common cloudless version. This blue tail is the tell-tale to determine if your "white cloud" variation is legit or if the cloud card was merely defaced by an eraser to fool variation enthusiasts......no blue tail=not legit.

Default 1961 checklist variation

This marked checklist, #516, suggest that the C covering hat version was issued in the 6th series printing, while the C above hat version was probably on the 7th series printing.

Found these 2 1972's this week while sorting commons. I have to look closer at the Williams re the 3 red blotches.

Also sharing the '80 clark...might be one here already.

Jack Clark and Graig Nettles were side by side on the 1980 Topps D* sheet and both were affected by the blue ink explosion, but while the Clark is relatively easy to find the Nettles is near impossible. Of course Al has one .

Default Theory About 1963 Fleer FB

In the process of upgrading both versions of 1963 Fleer #64 Bob Dougherty, I have come to this conclusion:

I know that the set was printed in one sheet, with # 1 down to #8, #9 down to #16, etc., up to #88. There was also a sheet that, for some reason, used #5 down to #8 and #1 down to #4. There was no red stripe on the bottom most card, meaning every card divisible by 4 has both a red stripe version and a no stripe version.

I had decided to replace both of these back-stained cards and had no problem finding a no stripe version. In checking on the card WITH a red stripe, I can find only one or two with lots of no stripes available.

My theory therefore is that they likely removed both Dougherty and Long in order to insert the checklist later in the run, using the second cited sheet with Dougherty in the fourth spot down and with the red stripe as a result being removed. Thus there is a shortage of the #64 WITH the stripe. I believe that the other version is not really a big SP after all since it likely stayed in the run from the beginning.

I am not expecting everyone to follow this, but this is what I am seeing.

The second Aaron is either low ink or more likely sun faded.

I just ran across this one recently. Take a look at the back where it says Topps above the card number. See the difference in location?

Can anyone confirm if this one is reoccurring? I just checked all of the backs on COMC and could not find the variation. It is not like it is a print dot or print smudge. Seems like this one would almost have to be reoccurring. Thoughts?

= = =

I'm editing this post because I just noticed something right after I posted it. Looks like all of the green on the back is shifted down. Now maybe I'm thinking this might not be reoccurring. Possible, I guess, right?

Notice that all of the green print has shifted downward on the back of the variant card.

Is this "mermaid tattoo" on Lou's sleeve recurring or a print defect. Curious collectors want to know! (I apologize if I've axed this before--I'm old)

This is the first time I've ever seen a print defect/anomaly like that on Lou.

Thomas---did you and George ever do an article on these cropping differences in the 55 Topps set ? Do you have a list of all the impacted cards ? Think the differences involve DP cards or was something else at work ?

This was George's earlier article on some 55 variants. Not included is the two versions or #2 Williams, with or without the dots in the auto

I am fairly sure that a couple of these are too new to have been in the article. I am betting that double printing is involved, but I notice that a search on eBay and COMC yields NONE of these logo variants, which kind of implies that Topps may have hurriedly fixed the problems so that the lion's share are correct.

The Robinson has been the subject of SCD articles, has gotten hobby recognition, acquired a premium and is pretty scarce. The Rosen seems to be similar. Not a cropping issue and maybe a corrected error. The others are pretty easy and I think George sent me something that included them and others that had similar cropping differences. Not sure if a full list exits. I have several others

So I bought into a couple of 1961 NuCards Baseball Highlights breaks on Vintage Breaks, and won a drawing for a $250 "ebay shopping spree" from their eBay store. Saw this one and just had to have it.

There were 12 ebay watchers on it at the time the item ended when I claimed it. But the card has so many registration issues, I think every color is aligned wrong. It's awesome!


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?
