    1993 Topps ... Copper?

    I just picked up a fairly large collection yesterday afternoon and one of the boxes was filled with 1993 Topps Gold cards. Mostly commons, but a few of them were in doubles - one had the regular gold and the other foil used was noticeably different. Here is a pic: Has anyone heard of this before? Is this a known variation?




    EDIT: Never mind - I see that JunkWaxGems has one for sale on Ebay. [MENTION=2962]jacksoncoupage[/MENTION] do you know if Canseco (#500) has one?

    I don't have a Copper or Silver one but I do have a no gold 1993 topps. Can't really tell on the scan but there is an impression of where the gold should be on the card but isn't.

    Some sort of printing flaw/variation. There was no purposeful issue of different foil colors that I am aware of. Like many printing issues, there will be a small market for these things, especially with player and E/V collectors.

    I have seen this before, on both 1992 and 1993 Golds. Pretty sure I own a few of each.

    I also have Red Green color blindness. Sometime it helps more in shades of color. I can see a horned toad lizard on the bark of a tree like it is black and white.

    That could explain it. I see a slight color difference between them much like a number of known sets with similar printing issues. Not sure what exactly would cause that, but as I said before, I am fairly certain there was no purposeful color variations, so it comes down to a printing issue.

    I checked my 126 and couldn't tell a difference, but I can't tell a difference in the pic either so I will get a second set of eyes to take a look at them

    I have been sorting 10s of thousands of Dawson extras pretty much all day today and just ran across this which is similar but not nearly as cool
