Quick Look: 1989 Topps Lou Brock TBC #662 Variations

10 Jun

Just recently, another variations popped-up in the 1989 Topps set, specifically from the Turn Back The Clock subset. The same subset that the “famous” Tony Oliva copyright errors come from. Card #662 is of St. Louis Cardinals legend, Lou Brock and it comes in two separate varieties: Variety #1 has a curved red line running down Lou’s right sleeve. Variety #2 has the red line mostly airbrushed away (traces still visible).
