Default 1986 Topps Roger Clemens Blue Streak Error

Just bought one of these beauties. I had been looking for one for a long time.
Any body else have one? I only know of one other person with one.

Awesome Al, I have never seen the Seaver. Do you remember what the Clemens errors sold for? I paid $20 for the one I got.

So I'm guessing that on the uncut sheets for '86 that Seaver was upside down directly above Clemens and that this is an "error" similar to the '90 Topps Frank Thomas NNOF error.

Great find. Looks like there should be some Terry Puhl cards with some blue on the upper left side. Now I need to add that to my list.

Great job investigating guys! Very interesting! I wonder who will be the first to find a Terry Puhl variation and post it on this thread. I would imagine there are lots of guys with a ton of '86 common boxes to go through!

Default Easterly Variation?

Sorry to jump on an old thread but I found these cards when going through some 1986 topps vending box. Is this another 1986 Variation? The Easterly "Blue dot"?

There was another thread very recently where a guy had an uncut sheet. I wonder if this card was near to the others?
Ben probably knows.

Different sheets, the Easterly is on the top row of the B sheet and the Clemens/Seaver/Puhl are on the D sheet.

The Winfield is from a solvent drip, still really cool, as they don't show up like that very often.

Easterly is a large fisheye, and a persistent one at that. They can last a while or a long time, all depending on what the bit of debris causing it is and if it moves or comes off entirely. This one is big enough that looking at the "dot" in the center might give a clue about what it was.

Al, can you take a scan of your Clemens, Seaver, and Puhl pieced together to show the complete print flaw puzzle put together? I can’t because of that pesky Puhl .
