1961 Topps Mickey Mantle MVP #475 - RARE PRINTING ERROR???

1961 Topps Mickey Mantle MVP #475 - RARE PRINTING ERROR???
I have a 1961 Topps Mickey Mantle MVP #475 that my dad gave me about five years ago. My dad had two of the same card and gave me one and my brother one. However, I noticed that when the cards were side by side that my card was missing the black line that separates the red color from the white border. My dad stated that he believes that all of his cards were obtained by him when he was a kid. My dad stated that he is sure these two cards came directly from a Topps bubble gum pack he would have bought from the local five and dime store when he was about 8 or 9 years old. I have kept my eyes open every time I go into a card store and search on Ebay and have not seen any other 1961 Topps cards without the black line. I have spoken to several card dealers in the area and they state that they have never seen this. Could you please help me identify what the card is? A misprint, variation, printing error, special issue, etc?

If it is something rare I would like to get it graded. I would prefer to get it authenticated and graded on-site at a card show or something of that sort. Are there any card shows that your company would have a booth at where I could get this card graded or authenticated while at the show. I am contemplating traveling to the National Sports Collector's Show in Chicago 2013. I am hesitant on sending it through the mail. Could you please give me any info you have on how the process of on-site grading works and if I could get this card on-site graded. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thumbnails don't work on this site. You will have to post the photo to a hosting site like photobucket and then past the IMG link on here in order for us to see it.

But, as for the card. It seems like just a printing error as there doesn't appear to be an error variation in the OPG. If anything, printing errors decrease the value of the cards' original value.

Thank you! I believe I have the photos properly downloaded now. Please let me know what you think about the card.
