Default Reprint or not W512 Babe Ruth

I just purchased these two W512 (I think) strip cards and want opinions whether or not they could be reprints. Any help is appreciated.
Thank you,
Robert

I greatly prefer the one on the left as more of the fine detail, like lines around his eyes, is clear, but I'm far from an expert.

I know, but man the one on the right looks like a reproduction of the one on the left. Everything on it is just a bit smeared or blurry. Of course it could be just a bad press run too.

Thanks guys. Well, I guess they go in the "Send To PSA" box. That box is starting to overflow now. May be time to renew membership.
Thanks again,
Robert

They both look fine to me. One is just printed much lighter (left) and doesn't seem to have the same pass of color that the right has. That is why the hair is red and not brown as the color pass looks to have not made it or it was the beginning of the sheet where ink is usually dialed in after as the press gets going.

Just my opinion but they don't have that tell tale fake cracking that you see on 99.9% of reprint strip cards.
