    #744 Nelson Santovenia Border lines through his name ,lower right corner.
    This can be found without the reworked lines
    #211 Brian Barnes shows a similar error.

      Steve,

      Do you have scans? It’s been my understanding that every card in the set can be found with a misaligned black plate effect that causes this. If it’s something new, I’d love to see them.

      Thanks!

    You are required reading for the variation lover. You are doing us all a wonderful service by sharing your knowledge. A day will come when I will get my ducks in a row and share some of my findings. Unfortunately that day is not tonight.

      Thank you very much! I’m working on it.

      Hopefully by the end of the year, this will be the biggest source for 1980s and 1990s error & variation info. The ongoing checklist feature will be my major focus and with everyone’s help, will be as complete as possible.

    Outside of hoiles, drabek and whiten, what are the top five or ten hardest to find?

    • Eric August 24, 2011 at 8:52 am #

      Mike,

      I would say that the cards I have had the hardest time tracking down are:
      1. the Comstock C version (there is just a small bit of yellow on both inner vertical blue borders)
      2. the Boyd black tip
      3. Checklist 656C (Palacios 358)
      4. Trebelhorn A*

      I have yet to find a pink Fielder or Joe Morgan 87 hits card, although I have yet to spend much time looking for either. The A*B* cards outside of the Daryl Boston card are extremely hard to find. At this point it is not even known how many of the cards in the set were affected by this variation – it is possible that each card on the A* sheet is available in the A*B* version.

  4. mike September 10, 2011 at 6:37 pm #

    This site is great but how about taking it to the next level and “rating” each variation on rarity….atleast the ones from error laden sets like this and pro set, etc.

    • Dylan September 11, 2011 at 7:09 pm #

      The 1990 Pro Set checklist is already oriented this way. It’s something of a headache to keep up with as a variation can sell for $15-20 one week and $0.99 the next. I base my star ranking off of my own research in the product, which is over twenty years deep. That and a combination of info from other collectors and ebay/internet sales.

      Down the line I may add this to the other ongoing checklists but as of now, I don’t have the time. Plus, I think a “showcase” blog, detailing the rarer cards in a specific set is much more helpful than noting which cards are common, semi-common, semi-tough, tough, etc…

  5. mike September 10, 2011 at 11:34 pm #

    finally sat down and sorted out my 91 topps.

    Surprisingly I found, among many others, a black tip flag and “hand over” oil can boyd cards.

    • Dylan September 11, 2011 at 7:04 pm #

      The black tip seems to be the rarest. The other two types are relatively common. I rank the black tip among the top five or six toughest variations in the set (excluding the A*B* sheet variations).

  6. mike September 11, 2011 at 8:51 pm #

    Outside of black tip boyd, which correct versions are harder to find than error versions?

    • Dylan September 11, 2011 at 9:13 pm #

      The corrected versions of the E*F* cards that just show one letter are tougher, as is the Darrin Fletcher with F*. The Record Breakers cards with full circle around R in copyright. Jose Gonzalez with correct photo. Robin Ventura with red border, with red over gray border. These are “tougher” than the error but not necessarily rare.

  7. mike September 12, 2011 at 9:58 pm #

    Broke 4 jumbo packs (100 crds per). Thought this info might be interesting:
    Comstock cubs
    Boyd behind tip
    Blyleven large
    Morgan printed lower
    Tanana diam large spce (2)
    Davis cor
    Chamberlain cor
    Gonzalez err
    (2) hudler lines
    Gaarraga white
    Segui black

  8. Greg Smith March 21, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    I’ve got one of the Mark Whiten hand outside border variation cards listed on Ebay right now along with the common correct version if anyone is still looking for it. No need for me to send a link or auction number since the only one up there (for this week) is mine and I don’t expect that to change.
