Error & Variation FAQ

  • What is a “Variation”?
    • Variations are cards which maintain the same card number, but Topps chose to change something on the card in a later print run of the set. Some examples of variations are:
      • Name Change Variation – Topps changed the name on the card, usually for legal reasons.
      • Card Back Variation – Different artwork appears on the back of the card, while the front remains the same. Usually associated with checklists and puzzle back cards.
      • Card Front Variations – A change to the card front in artwork, while the back remains the same.
      • Extended Variations – On the OS sets Topps printed many cards with eire * or ** appearing on the backs of the card.
  • What is an “Error”?
    • This definition is not as clear cut. Generally an error card is a card that has a flaw that was corrected by Topps, and both versions of the card were inserted into packs. Some examples of errors are:
      • Die-Cut Errors – The die-cut around the character on the card was either inverted or switched with another card’s die-cut.
      • Printing Errors – Flaws appearing on the card as marks, lines, extra art, missing art, and color variations.
  • What is not an “Error”?
    • The following are generally not considered errors by collectors:
      • Printing abnormalities such as dust marks, double vision, double die-cuts, and chrome roller lines are generally not considered errors.
      • Off centered cards and badly mis-cut cards are generally not considered errors.
      • Uncorrected errors cards that did not have a correct version inserted into packs are generally not considered errors.
      • Crimped card edges by the packing machine are generally not considered errors.
  • How did you decide what errors were placed on this list?
    • I went by a few criteria to decide to place the card on this list. 1) The card has to be generally accepted and collected as an error card by collectors. 2) Both versions of the card (Error and Corrected) must have been available in packs. 3) There must be multiple copies of the card that must appear in multiple boxes. 4) While not mandatory, errors generally have been verified by multiple collectors.
  • Your list sucks, you don’t have XXX error card on the list!
    • I certainly may have missed an error card. Also, there seems to be new error cards popping up all the time. If you feel you have an example of an error card that meets the criteria mentioned in this FAQ, contact me!
  • So wait a second, I just finished putting together all 1240 OS cards, and now you are telling me I’m not done?!?
    • You should collect what you are comfortable with, no one is telling you your sets are not complete. Collect what you like! With that being said, there are multiple ways the OS sets are collected by collectors.
      • Collectors just wanting the most basic sets will put together complete base sets with no regard for variations or errors.
      • Collectors taking the next step try to put together complete variation sets. This would include all the name change, card back, and card front variations.
      • Another set of collectors will take things a little further by collecting error cards. Some collectors prefer just die-cut errors, while others also want to add the printing errors.
      • Finally a small number of collectors go for the extended variation sets. These sets include all the variations in addition to the * and ** extended variations.
  • Why are some errors worth $1 while others are worth $200-$300?
    • It comes down to supply and demand, with a heavy dose of rarity involved. Some errors were printed in similar quantities as the correct versions, making prices lower even if there is demand. Other error cards are hard to track down and very rare, the demand pushes prices into the hundreds of dollars for those errors. Another consideration is demand. If collectors don’t consider an error in demand, prices will stay low regardless of rarity.
