Default Twin Chaps?

A couple years back I purchased a Bill Chappelle as part of a lot. After the package was shipped, I got a message from the seller, telling me that Chappelle missed the boat. A partial refund was given. All was good. I purchased a second Bill Chappelle. Both the first package and the single Chappelle arrived on the same day. The package was indeed short a card, just not the Bill Chappelle. SO I had two, both SGC 40. Then I looked, the differences are numerous. Such oddities are not my strong suit. Here is a side by side scan of both... The one on the left has a badly sunburned face, the creases in his uniform are noticeably darker and the shadow on the right side of the card is three times the size. Is the left Bill Chappelle (misspelled on the flip "Chapelle") over done or is the right Bill Chappelle underdone?

I think I have a weird Chappelle too. I'll dig around if I get a chance and post it.

No better place to look for "Weird Chaps" than Net 54.

Thank you all.


All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

That is what I thought too!!

As for Chappelle, I think the guy with more ink just got more ink. From some searches most look to have less black ink than the one on the left of the screen.
