getting off to a decent start so far....

the # 6 treasure island card is supposedly the most difficult card in the set. at this point, there is only 1 psa 9 and now only 1 sgc 96 - both highest graded.

HOW Uncut Sheet - Error Back

No score for this post
January 8 2010, 12:08 PM 

Here's a crop from a HOW Sheet (of 35 full cards, and 13 partial cards; 6 across and 8 down). The interesting thing about this sheet is that the back was run through the printing process 3 times.

Here is what I have observed about this sheet:
A. All of the front images are printed with the same orientation.
B. All of the front images are different from the reverse card numbers.
C. "1st" back printing pass shows a proper alignment with the front cards; different card numbers and text, one column card orientation is 180 degrees different from the front card orientation.
D. The "2nd" back printing pass is the same as the first, but offset nearly 1/3 of a card "higher" than the first printing pass.
E. The "3rd" back printing pass is the Black image printing for the front image; same cards as the 1st & 2nd back pass.


Here is an excerpt from the sheet; this scan shows the card fronts & the card backs for the same 4 cards. Note that the orientation of the right column (backs) is 180 degrees from the adjacent, left column.

Here is a larger scan of 1 card back; with the issued card image for the "3rd" back pass:

I pick up two partial sheets with similar overprint I will try and get u pictures this weekend.

One sheet has black with with yellow applied correct and blue off a inch sad.gif and full color on the reverse with black double printed but off 1/4 inch but also overprinted with the text.
Second shee is blank back full front with black double printed and of 1/2 inch also text is printed but on the left which is the edge you can not read the text only on the right which is cut down the middle or 4 3/4 card in. the print fades right to left top to bottom.

NOTHING like handing a sheet from this era the feel smell vivid color minus the blasted double black overprint....

Mark,
That is pretty neat. It looks like it was a sheet the printer used to align the presses. If you notice the front color registration is a little off as well. It is amazing that something like this has survived as one would think this was just scrap and would have been thrown away.

Todd, nice haul!

Is that a War News Pix 'Dirty Dozen' card there?

I also like the black/white cards showing the old-time Chinese women. What are those?

The girls are from the set "Corean, Chinese, Or Japanese Girls" ACC# T493.

Nothing MINTY but fun none the less.

Nice haul from all the secret Columbus places as usual! Those T493 Murai cards are great. I have about 20 of them. Hard to figure out the set as with most of those high T400 cards..........let me know if you have dupes.

My 3 latest pickups, USHD No. 136, BION No. 39 & Strongman No. 4

The BION No. 39 is not the one I got in my Part Set 21/24 pickup. This is another No. 39 on top of that one.
