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.

with or without white "arm band". The white band is the scarcer of the two, but is not hard to find

How did I miss this one on eBay? Did anyone here win it? It's the first 1974 that I have seen with this printing flaw, similar to the 1990 Topps Frank Thomas No Name.

I saw this card posted in another forum....has anyone ever seen a 69 Topps card like this with a grey back? Any ideas on how this card ended up with a grey back?

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.

That's great, Cliff! Probably means there's a couple different cards from the same sheet with that same characteristic.
