Default Show me your print variations!

It seems more than time the Football side has it's own thread. There are quite a few recurring variations or defects in the major football sets, many of which are rarely noted or have not been publicly shown discussed.

Starting off with Jimmy Brown. Jim Brown's 61 Topps comes with a big white blob to the left, or no blob. The blob appears to me to be on 5% or less of the cards thus far.

Stealing a scan of someone else's copy since I'm lazy. 1955 Topps All-American Governali has a recurring defect where the "Q" in Quarterback is partially cut off. Both versions are easy to find.

Deacon Dan's 56 card comes with a vertical red line in the lower right, or without.

There is natural color differences between cards, sometimes drastic, without there being any kind of variant to go after. However, the Cardinals row in 1956, one of the 2 short printed rows, appears to be a bit more than that.

Cards have 1 of 2 looks - a light orange name plate box, with a 'smoother' look to the image and the dark blue background color. The players faces appear properly rendered, uniforms correct.

The second aesthetic is a dark orange name plate box, red ink more prominent in the players uniform, not just in the red top but often visible in the pants, and areas where red ink is not needed at all. The background doesn't look so smooth, it has a scratchier, less clean look that I'm not quite sure how to describe.

These differences all come in combination, on all Cardinals. It appears to me to be a legitimate variation, and does not really come in gradients but is clearly 1 or the other type of print.

I assume there is no premium on this 'variation' but I will have to check that out and perhaps add that to my Master set. Thanks!

Kyle Rote, #25 in 1953 Bowman comes in 3 varieties.

These 2 patterns of blue splotching above his shoulder are recurring and not that tough to find. Most copies of the card have no splotch.

1968 Topps Ode Burrell comes with this marking/character in the lower left corner from something on the sheet.

In unrelated news, Topps probably could have picked a better photo.

Some of these have more yellow ink in the pennant, some are more orange. PSA doesn't list it as a variation but when I was looking for one I saw plenty of both.

1971 Topps #110 Floyd Little comes with or without a yellow mark on his shoulder. I have 26 copies without, 7 with. All of my copies with it are from the bold print run, no blue tinting, red tinting, or the lighter inking.

All Little's have the blue and red X mark on his pant leg. This problem was never fixed.

Also recurring is this "red face" Al Atkinson, 1971 Topps #48. Pretty much any card can have some kind of ink smear, but this one is a recurring defect in the exact same pattern. Somewhere around 1% of Atkinson's, if I had to guess.

And 1971 Topps #61 Jan Stenerud has a similar red error, with the ink on his face and hair. Stenerud is several rows and columns away from Atkinson's card on the sheet layout.

The only thing cooler than a misprinted football card is a misprinted football card of Jimmy Johnson.
