1977 ken brett

one of the weakest variations out there, the autograph placement variation, in its weakest form, is slightly noticeable on today's card - ken brett's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
can you tell?  i don't think the photo is cropped and differently, although o-pee-chee did lighten the background considerably. it simply appears that the o-pee-chee autograph placement is slightly further left on the card, and the crossing of the 'tt' in 'brett' is not as horizontal as on the topps version.  boring, i know, but still a variation.

voici à vous, 1977 ken brett!

  1. I keep likin' the OPC card photos better. They had a better color quality. Looks like Topps often messed with the contrast too much and washed out colors or faded them. Not just this card, but several others you've featured.
