Default Add these variations to T205 Master List?

There a 2 variations that Andrew (Pup6913) has found and documented and has been widely discussed on this site:

Doc’ white

Graham Boston blue & black signatures

Since a Master T205 list is in the process of being created, should we include these?

I personally agree with Andrew and these print differences should be accounted for. To my eyes, the Blue/Black Graham signature is more easy to determine then the Black/Green Broadleaf backs.

Since this is not a PSA or SCG master list but a T205resources master list, should these be included?

Also, I thought there was also a minor Phelps difference like a missing " but I can not find that thread and could be wrong.

It is T205 related so they should be added somewhere. What does everyone else think?

As I've mentioned in several of the other threads that discuss this topic, I believe that any variation in the artwork or text of the card must be considered as a separate entry on the master list. FYI, here is a link to the thread I started on the John Miller card as I didn't see this link referenced on either of the current threads on this topic:

I have still never seen an explanation as to why this one isn't widely recognized a variation as it seems to meet all the criteria that anybody has set forth. A master list is just that...a COMPLETE list of all "different" cards in the set.

Since it's a resource for collectors at any level from beginner to expert maybe a different approach would be good.

Some of the Stamp catalogs have a tiered approach.
Basic listing
Listing of major widely collected varieties
Listing of specialized varieties.

So for T205,
Basic checklist
Master list including widely recognized varieties (Listed by TPG or the big book)
A third list of variations/varieties that are known but not widely recognized.

The added benefits are
Avoiding the whole "what's a variation" argument
If a variation/variety becomes widely recognized it can simply be moved into the proper list.
If it's listed on the site as known but not recognized with scans maybe that recognition will happen sooner.

The downside is that once TPG recognizes it the price may change. And anyone who hasn't found one yet may not like that.
