You got my curiosity aroused, so I looked through my entire set (98 cards plus the 3 variations)....and, approx. 70 duplicates.
It appears that only the Ruth and Hopp cards may exhibit this "non-tangential shoulder" anomaly. Here are my 4 Johnny Hopp
cards. And by mere coincidence, the top 2 cards reflect their normal printing. While the bottom 2 exhibit this printing anomaly.

Regarding the Ruth card, I have seen several 100 Ruth cards in my time. Of them, I've seen only 4 with this printing anomaly.

My Johnny Hopp has the red line, and also has an offset transfer of red on the back. Pretty cool to see another.

Brissie also has a shoulder line or not, and Weigel has a line over the bat.

Default Hey Frank K W and Steve B

There appears to be a pattern emerging here with this "printing anomaly" on these LEAF cards.

The cards that are printed with the "pinkish violet" color (instead of the normal RED color) have
this flaw.

Examples given......Ruth, Hopp, Brissie, Weigel.

I'd noticed that with my two, but a sample size of 2 was just too small to be sure.

Scans can be deceptive on color. The Hopp on the right with the line looks red on my screen. It it actually pinkish?

The Hopp with line is also has a different black printing as well, the black line on the shoulder is missing. (Plus a tiny cropping difference)

I'm thinking the pink ones were a different print run with different plates.

I only have a few, but to me this set is fascinating. Skip numbered with a whole short printed series, plus a bunch of odd variations like these that are quality control isues in the design department. And then there's the missing colors and other problems in the actual production.

Default Is this card real? 48-49 Leaf Ruth

Hey guys,

Could you tell me if this 1948-49 Leaf Ruth looks authentic? I have one in a PSA graded slab and to me they look almost exactly the same. This one is just a little brighter/cleaner on the back. The main reason I am even asking is because I bought this card on ebay from a guy with only 80 feedbacks and 1 week after buying it he listed tons more from the same Leaf set. 2 more Ruth's, 2 Jackie Robinson's and tons of commons...

It looks, feels, and even smells real... it's just the seller I'm questioning I guess...

Default Another Ruth 48-49 Leaf Question

I found this Ruth Leaf along with a 1932 Sanella Babe Ruth and a 1933 Goodey Carl Hubbel. Because of the three being together, Im inclined to believe the Leaf card is real, but would love to have an opinion from you experts. This one has the red lines on the side. Does that indicate a possible reprint or a more rare version of the real thing?

Read the links at the bottom and then inspect your card with a loupe (magnifying glass) and see what type of printing process it was made with.
