Has anybody seen a difference in cropping of the picture for any other players on the 1995 Pinnacle Pins?

I've never noticed that type of difference on the front, but I have 2 Griffey one's that are noticeably different on the reverse. The Pinnacle copyright information stamped into the metal are 2 very different sizes & fonts. Those 2 Ripken's are pretty awesomely different. The Griffey's I have, I pretty much ignored and assumed it was just a different print run, because the front's look the same to me.

Metal colors the same? One looks more gold and the other more silver looking... again, might be just damaged versus another version IMHO.
The picture is completely different...
It's cropping, plus the color. It's 100% a different version.

Like Ryan said its the cropping that makes it different and now that I looked at the back they are different too. The color is slightly different, and that could be for a variety of reasons, but not as much as the scans make it seem. Below are pictures taken with my camera.

That one on the right is definitely strange, almost bootleg or 3rd party type thing. That made in Taiwan sticker on the reverse rather than Pinnacle stamping on the metal just screams bootleg, but I don't know how big of a market those would be, if it would be worth it. Even Ripken's shoulder or whatever that hump is on the front picture just wouldn't normally pass Pinnacle's quality control. But I still like it, it's most definitely a unique variation to a more known release. Mine, of course, looks like the one of the left.
