Default 89 UD Griffey- Is This A Print Defect?

I picked this up this past summer and felt I overpaid ($80) but maybe now I got a bargain. I thought the card would grade a 9 but noticed a small line about half way through his right collar bone. It almost looks like a faint line of ink but I really donít think itís from a pen. Have any of you ever seen print defects like this with the set.

BTW, sorry for the low quality pic... itís in one of the cases I have hanging on my wall and itís a pain to open up.

I don't see a pic.

But based on your description alone it sounds like you are describing a plate scratch.

If it looks like a black eyelash or so, there was a thread about it on PSA's message board a few months ago. I would call it a recurring print defect.

I had never heard of this, but a quick search finds a thread on it dating back to 2017. I think, due to the insane popularity of the 89UD Griffey now, that this will finally take off as an error card. Yes, it's just a print defect, but that didn't stop the Frank Thomas NNOF or Frank House Yellow Tiger.

I'm grabbing a couple.

I don't think it will become valuable. It's just not interesting, and doesn't have a history of being chased after or looked for.

You’re probably right, John. Although I did notice the 1990 Upper Deck Griffey without the copyright line on the back has skyrocketed. One just sold for $1600+ last week. I paid $400 or so for mine a couple months ago (both PSA 10s). Although that is a more glaring error than the little line on the ‘89.

With the rise in prices has this type of error gained in value? If so any idea of current value? I found these a few months ago when going through stuff I had not seen in a very long time.


The UD is a Don Baylor card with the Griffey overprint on the back.

The Star card has the Durham Bulls Brian Deak overprint on the back. Kinda cool because both cards are #9 The front has at least 2 overprints. One is upside down and the other is a Jose Canseco card the correct direction.

Ben, I think I'd throw each of those on eBay with a $2000 BIN and accept best offers, then see what happens.

LOL, yes I seen the insane prices. Didn't see anything in the SOLD listings though. I might do that as I would sell them for way less than $2K each.
