Default Frank House Yellow Tiger-confirmed variant now?

Just read this on the Huggins and Scott auction and was wondering if this was correct?

Master Set Collectors! From the landmark 1952 Topps Baseball edition arrives one of its curious oddities, the offered #146 Frank House (Yellow Tiger) variation. Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. The growling Tiger logo on this recently confirmed variant is absent of the orange-and-red color details found on the common example. While recognized by most 1952 Topps collectors, PSA does not distinguish between the "Yellow Tiger" and its colorful cousin. As such, reliable population data is not available. What is certain is that this gum card presents quite nicely for its overall grade.

I think the person in charge of the hobby must have confirmed it Dale

I think most master type collectors of the 52 set consider it a variation, and some view it as involving more than one variation. Bob Lemke once wrote an SCD article suggesting it was a variation as opposed to a print defect, but I am not sure if it is listed as a variation in the most current Standard Catalog or Beckett. PSA usually follows what those catalogs list as variations eventually.

I have one all yellow and one yellow but with a red tongue

I would appreciate it if you could get someone to officially recognize my 52 Campos with the partially missing front border as a variation, like it's black star cousin.

Hi Irv, not sure of your question.

That's not even a proper description of the card advertised. Too much red on the tongue to say its absent of red.

There are two yellow versions, one where the red is absent, and one where it has been gradually reduced. There were 2 different placements in the sheet.

One of which was printed without red. This is visible on ones with have NO green throat and quite scarce.

The other ones which have actual red missing on the throat, as well as absent from the tiger logo. They nclude versions of red being gradually stoned off of the press to mimic the first one printed without red.

At some point, early on, but sometime after the gray backs where produced, Topps reset the press and let them run with all corrected versions of the House Tiger.

Hi Al, SGC has been labeling the Campos border variation, or should I say they did for BMW sports cards. They deemed the PSA 4 I sent to them not authentic. After a heated debate, mentioning they were willing to do it for BMW and not for me, I asked them to send me the card back. I did send them a lower grade one last week and waiting to hear their response.

Ted---they might have rejected it because of your reputation for trolling ebay for pricing errors

I asked BMW, who highly value their 2 , if they had tried to get PSA to recognize it. They suggested I do that.

It is listed as a variation in Beckett, but not in the most recent SCD Catalog I have ( 2014)

It's not borderline. Take a swing through the never ending variations thread. We are a silly lot, clearly

Much like the school of silly walks, some variations simply aren't silly enough

I would bet that a lot of non collectors find it silly that we would spend
money on any baseball card.
