I pulled a 1990 Topps Ken Griffey Jr. Has anyone seen this type of printing defect? Thanks

    I haven't seen an ink print defects such as that. To me it seems like possible it was from a different machine defect in the cut/packaging process but that's my highly uneducated guess.

    Is the surface smooth or rough, like it was scratched/gouged?

    There is no chance.. any little print defect.. should be worth more than a normal card. In fact, should worth less and not have special rights, based on it being a deformity. Humans included in that . heh

    I have seen some wrong back cards go for much higher than the regular version because it's rare. Special cards, like people, all have purpose and value regardless of whether they can serve the same purpose or provide the same value as me or you.

    I imagine you were looking to provide some humor, and I would have laughed 20 years ago, but that same humor I once had has offended many people and I realized handicapped (physical or mental) folks are some of the best humans on the planet.

    This is caused by still wet ink being smeared while moving the sheet. They are not very common but hardly collected, even by variation collectors, unless they are recurring enough to warrant need for a master set. See also: finger print ink misprints.
