    I believe there are two unique versions out of these three pictured. The only reason I put all three in the picture is that the one visible difference under regular light, is that the two glow cards, the two on the left, are darker on the front than the third, no glow card. I do not have many 1991 Bowman, so my sample size is small, I don't know whether the lighter front print is just a random defect, or a regular indicator of glow backs.

    In terms of variations of glow cards, I have two "1991 Topps Puckett blank front/glow back" cards and one "1991 Bowman blank front/glow back" card. If anybody is interested in my extra Topps blank front/glow back, let me know. And if anyone has either the Topps or the Bowman Puckett with a blank front and no glow back, I'm in need of those.

    The only other glow cards I found from that era in my Puckett collection were a bunch of the Star Company Puckett sets have print/stock that has the true glow effect with the text. However, the glow seems consistent through the individual sets, and I don't have any duplicate Star Company sets, so I can't really compare or contrast, and I didn't find anything immediately leading me to believe there are variations out there.

    Not a card that glows, but just a random oddity I found while using my brand new "Use Only For 1991 Topps UV/Black Flashlight " is this with 1989 Donruss...

    These are the usual variations that differ with "INC." and "INC" as well as "*Denotes*" and"*Denotes"

    With both Puckett #182 and Puckett #BC-1 (Not pictured) the backs of all three cards look the same under normal light, but under UV/black light, the "INC/*Denotes" versions are a different color stock than the others. Again, not really any new variation, it didn't really glow, but just a UV/Black light oddity with the stock I guess.
    Very cool on the Bowman find! I'm going to have to go looking now as well. I wonder if one was a wax version and one was a factory version?

    So I finally got done going through me 1991 Topps Andre Dawsons and here is what I found.

    143 no glow red backs
    192 no glow blue backs
    772 glow backs

    I am wondering if maybe glow backs are retail backs and maybe no glow backs are factory sets?

    All of my Desert Shields real and fake are glow backs.

    All of my box bottom cards are glow backs except for the O-Pee-Chee.

    Here is the glow speck. It has a regular looking back with no imperfections I can see with the eye but when you put the UV light to it:

    So here I am, with my son's black light flashlight--which I got for him when our Radio Shack closed because I knew he would think it's cool--and checking my Gary Gaettis and Pucketts. My Gaetti Desert Shield glows, but my base doesn't and my 91 Bowman glows so I'll have to search through my extras for the other versions! (I don't have the inventory of some people!) I have three glowing 91 Pucks, but anyone else I'll have to keep digging. How has this been unknown or missed all these years?

    Also checked my 91 Topps Traded Gaetti. It glows.

    You know how many 1991 Topps cards I gave to goodwill makes me want to research before giving other cards again I am pretty sure I had at least one of these rare cards.

    I am curious what they took for a best offer. Anyhow that's nuts. I have 2 factory sets plus 2 other sets as well as 10 wax boxes worth of cards I opened. I guess I am gonna have to look through them and see what I have.

    It's dumb , seriously dumb. As Dustin showed with his breakdown, THEY AREN'T REALLY RARE. Cool variations and I want them, but overpaying is an overreaction.
    [MENTION=2962]jacksoncoupage[/MENTION] , nice sale sir. Didn't check the Ripken price but it sold too.

    I've been doing some looking through the few 91 Topps that I have. Like many of us, I got rid of so, so many commons. But I have found a few to dig through. So far, the only one that is really bold is this one, Jim Acker. My iPad can't take a picture (while I hold the light) well enough to show how it pops in the black light.

    But he more I searched, I found a couple that were a little, umm, disturbing. It's like the cards had a message just for me. What do you think?
