1967 Topps Baseball Errors and Variations



By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

If you look close enough at any sports card set, you’re probably going to find some sort of error. Whether that’s a spelling mistake, wrong photo or a glitch in the stats, baseball card errors can make an otherwise mundane card memorable. Today, few mistakes are corrected due to the modern printing process, costs associated with it and distribution. But this wasn’t always the case. Like most sets from its era, many 1967 Topps Baseball errors were corrected. And some other cards came with variations (and not the intentionally short-printed kind).

Most of the 1967 Topps Baseball variations are subtle like missing stat lines and slightly altered bits of text on the back. The biggest error is probably James Murray Brown’s photo being used instead of George Korince. However, this is one of the few errors in the set that wasn’t created.

Here’s a breakdown of the 1967 Topps Baseball errors and variations.

    sellers on ebay are creating variations. for higher card prices. mike ryan,with dot barely showing . i have been buying you price guide since you started printing.
    is this considered a error or not. funny after collecting
    for 55 years never seen this in anybody guides. stuff like this type of greed is what has and is destroying the hobby.

      Printing errors have been around forever. But stuff like that is usually considered as such, similar to if you pull a Topps base card without the foil. It might be a novelty but not normally.

    The entire 1st series doesn’t have the dot between the name and the position.

    Did anyone notice thid error on the Jim Palmer
    Rookie card? Four lines down it calls him the left-handed,Jim was a right hander.

    I’ve seen two examples the White Sox Team Card with the Cleveland Indians stats on the back. Anyone else seen this or know anything about it ?

  5. Henry 15 May, 2017 at 16:42

    I have several 1967 poster inserts that have been misnomered. Should they be thrown out?

  6. Henry 19 May, 2017 at 17:32

    I have several 1967 insert Pin-ups (8) that are misnumbered by Topps at the factory.

    I have a #150 Mickey Mantle with the “OF” on the front in white

    All others I see are in yellow

    Is this common? Or maybe just faded

    Hi. I am also a lifelong collector and I especially love the 1967 Topps set. I get confused on the ‘SP’ designation. Does this stand for Short Print or Single Print (or something else) and what does that mean? I assume they are more scare and thus more valuable. Also, could you please send me a list of the cards with the SP designation in the 1967 set? I really appreciate it!

    I have a White Sox team card with Cleveland Indians stats on back. Is there a correct card? Or is this the only print type?
