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).

1981 Topps Astros Future Stars with some weird marking on Danny Heep's name.


While it looks like it is something written on, it is printed and there is no indent.


1981 Fleer Tim Flannery with reverse and corrected photo


And more modern, 2000 Opening Day Cal Ripken Jr with a foil printing error. A type of printing error I have only seen on this card.

Ton of 81s can be found with partial black border missing including Astros Future Stars.

Default 1984 Donruss # 21 Larry Parrish Variations

I don't know if this is old news but as I was sorting thru some 1984 Donruss cards I noticed this card came in 5 variations. They are all "Steel" backs.
1) No marks at top, 2) "L" shaped lines at top right corner, 3) Line at both top corners, 4) line at right top corner only , 5) Line at left top corner only. Various sizes of the lines are visable, based on the sheet cut at the factory.

These aren’t variations, they are guides for cutting the cards from sheets. This is why you only see them on severe top to bottom miscuts.

I'd still count them. They're intentional marks put on the plate, and are different on different plates or different positions on the same plate.

And now I have to go look for them....sort of.

I really wanted this to be true but I’m not seeing what you are.

The lines are only visible due to a top to bottom miscut weighed heavily to the top. There aren’t any examples with the lines visible on a normally cut card with 50/50 centering.

Am I missing something?

Kaline and Banks in the 1960 set can be found with such marks, and the Banks can be found with varying degrees of a printers notation of Section I in the bottom border. Scans can be found in the never ever ending variations thread .

Different people have different concepts or definitions of what should or should not be deemed a variation,but there is no hobby standard or official definition. To each their own.

1992 Topps - [Base] - Missing Foil #621 - Dan Gakeler [Misprint]
Courtesy of COMC.com

This one is pretty cool. Topps Gold 1992 card with no foil on front. What's interesting about it, is that since it's Topps Gold and not the regular set, there is no player/team box on the front. I just assumed that the gold foil was covering the player name/team boxes on the front. But they actually designed them without any.

I think what he is saying is that depending on the sheet that the card is printed on you could have the same type of miscuts and completely different cut guide markers. For instance, in 1970 topps many of the cards can be found with cut lines at the top of the card and even though they are technically miscut, you can find the same card with a white cut line or a black cut line depending on the sheet it was printed on.
