Default 1949 Bowman Gray (Grey) variations

Question for the forum and possibly Ted Z.

I've read that many/most/all? of these cards are actually cut from full sheets and not issued in actual packs. I've heard that they are grey because they didn't go through the final color process and thus they were "rejects" at the time from the printing process.

Does anyone know whether any of these cards were company issued in packs, or were they all hand-cut. Most of the ones I've seen that are graded by the third party grading companies are "A". But once in a while i see numerical grades, which makes me believe these examples are not hand-cut. See a Campy RC that sold on eBay tonight that was graded SGC 9.

Just want to understand these better before I wade into the pool.
