1982 Topps "Blackless" Cards Available

In case you are not aware of what these are, it was believed that the black ink well ran dry for a very short period of time in 1982 and it affected the printing of cards on sheets A, B & C of the set. It is estimated that less than 100 of each card exists, although, some will say that number is a high estimate.

I just acquired several of these extremely rare "blackless" cards and am offering them for sale to fellow board members. If you are interested in any of these cards, please PM me. Feel free to make an offer. Scans available on request. All are from the rare C sheet except where noted. Grades are conservative.

  • I have 18 1982 topps baseball cards that do not have the black facsimile signatures on them but they have what appears to be a black border around player picture. Are these a variation of the blackless cards?

    All-Stars don't have the signature except the George Foster variation. Not sure if there was anyone else.
