I think you want to get it recognized elsewhere before they would label it-- unless it's an obvious variation. A discussion and recognition of it on a board like this, or on the CU board, would be helpful. Substantial discussion threads here on Net54 have been referenced by auction catalogs before. And there was a NNOF T206 that was holdered by PSA in part because it was discussed here on Net54 then examined in person by two board members. Discussion boards are where experts come together to discuss on the record the validity and existence of variations, errors and other such topics.

When Lemke was with SCD it was easy to send him variant cards and get a response on whether he would recommend it. His definition for inclusion
over time narrowed to exclude recurring print defects ( like the Herrer and Bakep) for new listings. And he removed some listed variations, like border gaps from later editions. He decided only intentional changes in a card by the manufacturer should be included. But he realized it is sometimes impossible to tell an intentional change from a defect that occurs in early runs and disappears

It was harder to get recognition under his replacements, Fluckinger and Bartsch. Maybe because variants did not interest them as much as Bob, or maybe
SCD cut back on resources for the print edition.

Rich Klein has some influence on variant listings on COMC, and he may have insight on who to contact at Beckett. They may be more lenient given their recognition of the 61 Fairly with a green smudge in the baseball on the back, which PSA then adopted .

Fact is there is not now nor likely ever will be a standard accepted hobby definition of what constitutes a variation

If not currently identified in the guides, PSA will most likely not recognize the cheeseburger as a variation of the regular hamburger.

lmfao!!! For the group sub, I am having to send some T203's comic cards that are CLEARLY marked "Winner Cut Plug" as "Mayo Cut Plug"......these aren't Mayo's!!! I thought PSA would clearly want to label the cards correctly.

Winner Cut Plug, a scarce but well known brand on the T203's, might not have been an option in their system.

I'm sending them in anyway so they can examine them. Hopefully they can slab them properly. I am surprised no one has sent any in before now. I had to manually remove the word Mayo's on the prefill, and call them "T203 Winner Baseball Comics".....hopefully they will recognize the variation.
