    No clue, have never seen one come up for sale. The silver back ones almost never come up anymore either.

    I recall reading in a Beckett that ud would send you a correct version for every error sent in.

    Apparently extremely few did so but I remember buying a lot of errors solely to send them in for corrected versions.

    I probably have about 5 corrected silver's left.

    Like so many errors/variations, this one involves a fairly unpopular player. It is definitely the master set collectors, however few or many there may be for a particular issue, that drive value on this type of thing. I have a number of errors and variations, but have never really gotten into the whole culture of it much. I just can't see paying $100s for common players just because there are only speculated to be a handful or cards existing. The Witt card is a perfect example of blind trust that the market won't spit out a previously unknown and unpredictable 800 count box of new mint examples to water down the pool! It is great that a segment of the hobby really goes after these, but it's not my thing.

    I definitely understand that. My own Variations collections is tiny now. But the fun is mostly in the discovery and research of them. Very few people are spending much on them these days, especially uncatalogued ones, so if I uncover something rare and can't get a decent price I'll happily hang onto it, I could never let a card like the Andy Hawkins go for $22.
