Default Show...me...your print variations!

A wise man on these boards once said, "if one looks hard enough, a print variation could probably be found for every card ever made". I would agree with that, and finding interesting print variations/variants/anomalies intrigues many of us. If you have recently found an interesting one share it here for the rest of us to admire!

Default Print Variants

I am at the stage where I wish I had limited myself to collecting variations recognized by some combination of SCD, Becketts or the Registry master lists. Of course ,once recognized they get instantly expensive unless you foresaw something you felt would get recognized later. The 61 Fairly cured me of that notion.

Some print defects I think may be unique, and therefore very rare, but, for that reason, not very collectible ( not enough of them to get hobby into them). Other print defects may be recurring but not very notable.

This Yount variant is recurring, but not very interesting ( to me)



This King variant is, to me, interesting, but apparently too scarce to be very collectible. At one time it was listed in SCD, but I think it was removed in later editions due to the fact it was viewed as mostly non recurring, or maybe not recurring enough




One of the reasons I enjoy this forum so much is that there are so many other variant collectors, like Darren, Ben, Doug and Joe here

That Frisella is cool Darren

Joe, love that transparent shadow Neal. Looks better than the "regular" issue.

Not a major print variation, but on this 61 Hoak card there is a green spot on his belt and then another green spot near the left border also. In a very quick look through ebay and COMC, out of 60+ copies I found two with the green spots.

Nice, Al. Tough to find those cards with back defects since mist ebay sellers don't provide back scans anymore.

Dick Gilkeson noted the line differences on the Williams card and several other cards in the 56 set in his variations publication some time back, 85 to 95 . And with ebay, the number of known cards with these lines has proliferated. I wonder if you looked long enough whether you could find them on all cards in the set.

I have a couple of examples in my set but Darren's prior thread convinced me it would drive me crazy trying to run down all the possible differences on just the Williams, let alone all the other cards in the set

Here are other 56 odditiies

I'd think most of the 56s would have the line differences. The Wiliams was in Nozakis book, along with maybe one or two others.

One of the good things about Ebay is that to some degree it lets us look at far more cards than we could have in the early 80's. A big collection might have a lot of cards, but hardly anyone went through them looking for little differences. And after a point dealer didn't keep them in stock by the boxful.

The front of the single card is a perfectly centered '64 Topps #214 Ken McMullen. But the back includes parts of four cards none of which is McMullen.

Here is a HOF print variation...72 #300 Aaron, found only a few copies with the print line across his legs. This line is much more obvious in hand versus the images from DC. This line would be similar to red line that appears on some copies of the 306 Boswell card.

It's funny, I have started to go through my Dodgers (mostly post 1980) and I have been looking for these odd print dots and such. Unless you have a decent quantity to compare, it's hard to see the differences.

I remember a time when the funny cuts, blurry photos and other printing flaws were flat out garbage!

I also remember getting cards in the late 70s with little bits of what looked like rubber band pieces under the card surface. They would create a small bulge. I dug one out one time and found a small bit of this rubber band like material.

Interesting how eventually everything becomes collectible to someone.

Default 1971 Carlos "Green Splotch" May

I have two of the "green splotch on chin" print variations. I don't see them very often. In fact I didn't realize there was a non-splotch version until a few years ago; green-chin Carlos was in my binder with the '71 set until I re-discovered it & started looking for more. I always imagined the Sox made him paint the clubhouse before posing for his card.

I've always loved the shot on this '73 Speier card and found this wrong back for a pittance, so I grabbed it up…

Within the next few days when I add additional cards to my errors and variations for trade thread in the BST, the Speier will be there.

Black star on the back of this 52 Topps card? It looks like it is going to go for big bucks too?

Default Black Star

Long time recognized "variation". There are also some partial black stars out there, and versions with partial missing front borders. They have some hobby recognition but are not part of the PSA registry master list and so do not carry as big a premium as the black star

Thanks.

Guess those bidding on the card I posted think it is something special based on what they are bidding on the card for.

No harm in trying to bump it up I guess??

I have also heard of, but never seen, 1959 Gus Triandos missing stats on the back, 1965 Turk Farrell with a large ink blob on the front of the card, and 1975 Ken Sanders with a large brown area in the lower left corner. If anyone has one of these, please post a photo of it.

I was putting away some recent purchases today and noticed what seems to be some sort of airbrush job on this card. I am being lazy and using ebay scans, but my pair of cards have a similar difference.

Most every card Post Cereal card cut from a box has at least one if not multiple variations. These variations mainly with involve the cropping of the image (these two copies of this card are also cropped different), but also with variances with the color/brightness of either the background or players image (as in this case). Most of these variances are due to what original product type the card appeared on.

Default 1968 TOPPS 214 Yankees Rookies

I had not noticed until today that the black left border of this card comes either "straight" or "slightly indented" at top and middle. After a very quick look through available copies, it appears that approximately 9 of 10 have the straight edge. Here are two copies of the "slightly indented" left border.

Default Post Cereal Variations

The comment is correct. For all 3 years of Post Cereal, the front of the box colors dictated the print. So depending on what cereal box they were on the shades and croppings could be different. This also occurred in the Football set and the 2 Jello sets.

Hey guys,

With Jim Wynn being my inductee into the Hall of Mediocrity I collect all things Toy Cannon. This is a cool print variation of which I now have 6 examples. I've seen it called the "Target" variation on eBay so that's what I call it too. I'm collecting as many as I can find so if you have any and don't really want it please let me know.

Thanks,

AndyH

I had not noticed this variation on this card, or others from 69 either...however, the last name "Horton" appears closer to the first name "Willie" on some copies while on other copies the first and last names appear farther apart.

Maybe someone already showed this. There appears to almost be a blacked out area on the right edge of this 1974 Rookie Shortstops card.BDC45E89-7984-43D3-A24F-2C99CCC4E774.jpg

That card was on the right edge of the sheet and undoubtedly the black area was a printers mark or a helping guide on sheet cutting, it was probably eliminated after someone noticed it showing up on the card in the early printings. A couple of other cards that had a similar problem that were later corrected with the outer sheet mark removed were 1960 Topps Ernie Banks and 1964 Topps Eddie Mathews.

Thanks for posting the 74 sheet. Is the Banks variation you are referring to where there is writing on the bottom of the card?

Yes, the 1960 Ernie Banks has ‘SECTION II’ on the edge of the card and is fairly common, the 1964 Eddie Mathews has a large blue bar on the edge of the card. The Mathews must have been caught early and is extremely rare, I have only ever seen two of them, one is on eBay for $900 and the other is owned by a very large fish member here. ETA: correction, I should have said a very large underwater mammal .

Anyone know how common it is finding “SECTION 1” on a 1961 Topps card?
