1994 Topps Sheet Code Variations – Complete A/B Variations Checklist (132)

8 Oct

Continuing on with my recent spotlighting of post-prime junk era variations (mid 90s and on), here is a look at a recently discovered (2007-ish) variation affecting a previously unknown number of 1994 Topps subjects. 132 of the series one base cards are commonly found without a print code on back – very common for this set, however, each of these subjects also exist with the the much rarer A or B code on back (66 As and 66 Bs).

**ORIGINAL POST**

Brought to my attention from a fellow collector, so far, only Mark McGwire, Pedro Martinez, Mel Rojas and an already-forgotten Montreal Expos common have been confirmed. This is most-likely due to the fact that by 1994, the error and variation craze had died down considerably and collectors weren’t pouring over the issue like they had in the late 80s. My own research has been pretty limited as far as this set goes, I’ve poured over half a dozen factory sets and twice as many 3200ct boxes but have never found a with code and without pair.

I’d be interested to hear what the player collectors out there turn up. If anyone has any more info on these variations or other 1994 Topps errors, I’d like to get an ‘Ongoing Checklist’ for 1994 Topps going soon. I am fairly certain there is a lot more to be discovered in 1994 Topps.

    I believe that Greg Colburnn was the other Expo that had been discovered with and without a print code.

      Oops – didn’t mean to shortchange Mr. Colbrunn, but I misspelled his name. The card number is 134.

        Great find. Colbrunn was always a favorite, I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for this. I’ll add it the checklist once I get some more info on these. Thanks!

    I’m not sure if you’ve covered it before, but there were a lot of Sheet Code Variations among 80s Topps Football. 1984-1987 specifically. I’m not sure about the other years.

    • Dylan October 11, 2011 at 7:21 pm #

      Yes, I’m somewhat familiar with them. They also produced a handful of sheet variations in 1992 Topps and several C* / D* varieties exist in 1989.

      This is a ToppsGold card that is missing its foil stamping.
