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...
