    Official Error and Variation Discussion/Reference Thread

    This is a continuation of what we started on BMB (jacksoncoupage hosted the thread).

    What this thread IS: A discussion and reference thread for sets that have large amounts of errors and variations in them (as well as what the variations are).

    What this thread IS NOT: A list of every error in existence including blank front, blank back, players transposed on other players, etc. When in doubt, just post what you found and we'll decide together whether or not it should be on the list.

    Re: Error and Variation Discussion/Reference Thread

    Perusing your list briefly, it looks like you missed a majority of the 1990 Donruss errors Smoltz/Glavine, Ryan, Juan Gone, All Stars) and 1990 Fleer errors (misspellings).

    You should see the backlog of changes that wasn't on this original list.

    This starting list was just cut and copy from where we left off on page probably 8 or 9 of our 30+ page thread. I'm going to be adding pics of everything I can as well as all the updates I have.

    I just wanted to post this so people can start adding. I've got a long list of errors and variations to add myself, but that will happen over the next few days.

    Also, for those of you that post pictures we use for this, I'm going to save them to my own URL so we always have it. I'll watermark the pictures with your name so we know who they came from.

    In the end we'll hopefully have listings as follows:

    YEAR
    Card: (click here) Description goes here

    (click here) will be a link to a watermarked image showing the error/variation

    1987 Topps sticker 27 Printed in Italy
    1987 Topps Stickers 27 Printed in the USA

    Not entirely sure they should be considered variations, but maybe 2 completely different sets. The USA version is cardboard, whereas the Italy is more like paper.
