However, the 1979 Topps set included a handful of cards that had no color ink on the fronts. I have only seen pictures of 5-6 cards from the set that look that way, and none of them are the same player. It is possible that is the variation they reference, but it is only my guess.
Hopefully someone here can give us more information on both years.
