1988 doug decinces - not a variation

all of the major card catalogues and publications list doug decinces' 1988 o-pee-chee card with the additional note "now with angels" which would most likely lead one to believe that it is one of the couple dozen text variations in the set.
unfortunately, it is not.  here's the topps front:
same wording, same font, same location.

just to be consistent with our regular posts, here's the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
the back tells us what we need to know - decinces spent the last part of the 1987 season with the cardinals, but topps didn't have time/the ambition to update the photo and team affiliation.  so, decinces gets the same treatment as dickie noles and is denied a true variation.

voici à vous, 1988 doug decinces!
