Fiddling with the press run is a hobby tradition that dates back more than 100 years to the pesky Old Judges and then the interruption of Honus Wagner’s status in the 1909-11 T206 White Border issue, so it’s hardly damning that postwar Topps might have the occasional error to correct. This is an absolutely staggering array of either variations or simply tough cards from the card maker over the years, everything from white letter, yellow letters optioned clauses or Washington designations and lots more. Cards are in a wide condition range, generally Excellent to Ex-Mt, with some below and a few above, and condition improving a bit in later years, with the 1970’s closer to Ex-Mt to Near-Mint. Herewith are hundreds of Topps tough cards or variations from 15 different vintage sets.
