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.

1955 Topps #98 Beattie Feathers comes with or without this red dot next to the All-American set logo. Dot is tougher. Not the most exciting, but this is one of the best football sets issued in my book.

Art Hunter with a lot of extra blue over the bottom part of the photo and the team logo. Don't think that was intended!

Anyone familiar with this 1977 Walter Payton variation? There were two on the 'Bay last week (one is still there), and although they were different cards (different centering), they both looked off on coloring from the original.

Thought it might be some sort of reprint or Heritage issue or an artifact of the scan. The half missing 'B' in Bears and the lower left corner just look strange as far as print defects.

BTW, 1977 was the first year I collected football cards, and Peyton alluded me all year. Just could not pull one from a pack.

The square in the bottom left is definitely from a scanner setting which makes me think the partially missing ‘B’ is also a result of an automatic scanner setting.

Bottom left corner of the purple stat box that contains the card number. It is either correct, or recurringly a misshaped white spot on Dan Darragh #236. 1970 Topps.

And #238 Fred Cox has a similar problem at the top of the write-up box. Both versions are easy, turned out I don't have the correct copy.

The Curtis Dickey has a print smudge on the lower left and the Jack Snow is one of the best miscuts I've ever seen.

Christmas means taking out some card boxes to play with m Dad; this year it's old football. I am not sure if recurring, but some ink bleed on this 1955 Bowman George Taliaferro, making the lines in the football that holds the card number a solid block. Have never found another but have not worked hard. Might be a RPD.

Card #68 Ben Agajanian has a recurring variation. The yellow rectangle cutout in the upper right of the green backdrop is recurring. The correct copy is more common, but this version is not difficult and there are several on eBay at any given time usually.

1960 Fleer was a very low quality production. Every card can be found with yellow ink explosions or with a light layer of blue over the majority of the card making players and uniforms look weird but not so obviously wrong.


Here's Curley Johnson with a yellow explosion.

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.

Pretty much all the 1962 Post's have this red ink problem as a frequent occurrence, with red spread in some quantity over pretty much the entire picture, creating a purple sky effect like the next years Topps cards.

1954 Bowman #50 George Taliaferro has at least 3 versions. Deep, 'full' blue blob swirl in upper left, lighter partial blue blob swirl in upper left, and no blue swirly things.

None of the three are difficult and all are readily available. It is my experience that the full blob is the toughest, but I didn't look all that hard after getting each of them and I easily pulled scans off eBay for all of them.

1954 Bowman 49 and 97 both have known true variations, with the names spelled differently on the reverse. Finnin used to carry a big price gap in the Standard Catalogs and Chadnois/Chandnois wasn't listed.

All copies of 1954 Bowman #100 Jack Christiansen have the blue swirl over his head. Pretty much all of the cards between 97 and 128 have minor recurring defects or constant defects involving blue ink.

1954 Bowman #111 Dante Lavelli. Lavelli always has a blue dot in his shoulder (one of the many constant blue issues in 97-128), a small red mark above his uniform number, and another mark in the grass above the "V" of his name. But, the blue dash lines extending from his upper arm through the edge of the border is a recurring print defect. With the defect is less common than the correct card.

The same error on Lavelli reflects as a result on the adjacent card on the sheet, #112 Leon Hart (Bowman sheets at this time were in numerical blocks, though I do not believe they were 32 card sheets as is said to be the case, but 32 block patterns of 8x4 placed onto sheets). Hart, as a 97-128 card, again has constant blue ink problems with a dot on his neck and a blue mark by his ear. He comes with or without the blue dash lines in the border, which intrude into the image as a small white line before the defect disappears.

1954 Bowman #60 Charley Trippi is normally seen without the green splotch on his sock, but this is recurring. Not as easy as the correct card, but not super tough.

1955 Bowman #62 George Blanda. Blanda comes with or without this big reddish purplish slash in the bottom right. Both are very common, I suspect this may have been a constant defect on one Blanda's sheet placements rather than something that happened during only part of production.
