    Misprint Fleer 483

    Hey I was going thru organizing my boyfriends card collections from when he was little and came across this card.. I know the misprints can be worth more and just looking for some info on it. The light by his glove is from my flash but if u notice the ball he is holding looks as if it's glowing and also on the Y is a white dot. Other than the misprint the card is in perfect condition. I'd appreciate any info you may have. I have done a lot of searching and can't find another card like this one.

    These seem like ink problems rather than an actual misprint.

    Nothing much here in my opinion, the fish eye is large and looks cool, but it's not a misprinting. As for the ball glowing, it's typical of the image to be under-contrasted and over-saturated, so it appears bright on all cards.

    Cards with splotches like that typically don't bring a premium *unless* a flaw like that was done on a number of them, and is recognized. Then, it *can* bring a bit of a premium, but typically not much unless it is on a key card.

    The printing die was dirty and the that's how the blotch by the Y got there. The press operator stopped the press, cleaned it and away they went. Chances are, a sheet or two with the blotch on it was sent on for cutting/collation. The rest were discarded.

    Not really a premium for this sort of thing.
