Posted By: <b>Adam J. Baxter</b><p>Polar Bear back sans the frameline would be a first for me. I'm betting that someone else on the board has probably come across one at some point. I know that American Beauty's can be found with or without the frameline on the back. What's the front look like? Maybe it missed the final print run?

Posted By: <b>barry arnold</b><p>Adam,<br />I'm the first to admit that I don't see the best, even with the glasses,<br />but i do see a hint of a frameline---where it's least visible would seem to<br />be wear methinks. Doesn't seem like the AB phenomenon,i.e. frame and no<br />frame?<br />Is there something else I'm missing here about this card?<br /><br />all the best<br /><br />barry

Posted By: <b>fkw</b><p>The whole back had one of the 2 dark blue printing runs run dry. The "small details" blue is missing or very light. If you look at the "a" in "Polar", the 2 scrolls, and the Factory Number, among other areas, it is obvious.<br /><br /> <img src="http://www.oldcardboard.com/t/t206/polar.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>Barry,<br />Sorry about the scan but I think the previous post sums it up. Mine has blocky letters and a hint of a frame line around the outside. I would have thought it was run all at once.<br /><br />Thanks for the info.<br><br>Adam B
