I'm not sure if this has been noted before but in my search for a Larry Jansen card, I have noticed this print line on some of his cards. (Bottom left, in the border, just below his wrist)
This one also has a dot/spot/print mark above it but most that I have seen with this line don't have that spot.

It's funny, I was thinking much the same thing....with only Sy Berger sitting around his kitchen table constructing the layout wondering how he can cause unending speculation on how variations were created.

I think there is something to the previous threads as well as this one in terms of the initial production and how at least some of the variations came about.

Can you imagine if they had today's technology back then?? With such simple layouts, it would have been a snap to make everything 'perfect.' Case in point, once they laid out the logo for a particular team, all they would have to do to assure absolute consistency is copy and paste it to every other card that showed a player from said team. (And, yes, contrarians, I know it's not quite that simple, but I am just making a general point. )

Even back then it was almost that simple. But .....Topps.....

Well Darren actually has a good point as the majority of miscuts occurred in the 2nd & 3rd series of Topps attempt to go big time with the '52 set. I believe this was due to the hurried nature of creating these series which resulted in misaligned cards and consequently miscutting them. Coincidentally - the 3rd series is where many of the variations occur.
