TNP777 Wrote:Got a question about the '95 Stadium Club TransActions color variation. In the list on the first page, it says there are a minimum of four color variations. Has anyone arrived at a maximum number of variations? Because of all the colors used, couldn't that number be pretty big?

Yes I noticed this when I was pulling those Butlers. Not only are the "titles" available in multiple colors, the TSC comes in multiple colors. I have found either 6 or 7 different variations for the "title" and at least 4 different for the TSC logo, so it's safe to say that at least 28 combinations should exist. This one still needs more research. When pulling Butler, since this shop had so much of these cards, I pulled other players to see the max amount of one player possible and Frank Thomas came to either 6 or 7 titles and 4 TSCs.

I'm assuming this card shop is in Portland. Which one is it? I was up in Astoria in Feb 07 visiting my dad and drove into the city to meet a collecting friend. We ended up finding this shop that was just across the river from Vancouver. I know that doesn't exactly give a great description - wish I could remember the street. I do know this guy had quite a bit of off-grade vintage, which was the main reason we stopped there. At any rate, I'll most likely be driving up sometime later this year and would like to maybe check this shop out.

Thanks again for taking the time to find these great Butlers!

edit - I did a little Google research. I'm thinking the shop we visited was Sports Cards & More on SE Stark. There was a picture of the store on Google Maps that looked kinda familiar.

That's the one! It's one of those places where you can pick up a box at random off a counter (or to get through a passageway!) and always find something you want/wanted/didn't-know-you-wanted-previously.

Where is this off-grade vintage guy located? I can always use some off-grade vintage.

Got a couple more for you guys.

First one was noticed by a guy on thebench. The logos on the back of the '99 century legends come in two variations:

Second, the '94 UD SP have two different variation prints on the holograms, vertical and horizontal:

Since this product came oput, Ive been wondering why my Mac has a foil logo. No one has even been able to to explain it. Is he the only player with this variation?

No he isn't. Towards the bottom of this thread on the bench you'll see a Castilla version as well

I am not certain but I am assuming this is a widespread print variation. I've already found 2 more of McGwire on ebay in less than a week.

It's kind of odd how all the examples above (except B. Anderson) are pre-posed shots. I am going to a shop today and I'm going to see if I can locate any of these. Very interesting variation, I wonder if it affects every card or just the pre-posed ones?

I recall when I opened these in 2004 They were averaging about 1 per box, it was only in series 2 though, I haven't found any in series 1.

I originally thought that maybe a sheet that was supposed to be made into the gold cards somehow escaped the gold foil coating, but considering the numbering on the cards, it couldn't have just been one sheet

These A-Rod's are from the 2004 Topps Traded series. Neither the Chrome nor the Base have the "53 Years of Collecting" on them, but the Gold parallel does. Would this be part of the variations you guys are talking about, or was this on all gold parallels?

Thanks a lot for your help, and I must say this thread is great!

I have just sorted thru my 1990 Bowman and have found several 1st print / 2nd print variations. The first prints were obtained in a factory set while the second prints were from wax and cello packs.
