1971 Topps Variations?: Billy Grabarkewitz #85
This falls under the "is it really a variation" file, but I have seen it mentioned as such around the internet, so I felt the need to include it here. I have been waiting to post about this card until I personally got one, and after forgetting for over a year, I found one for cheap and pulled the trigger. On to the variation, you see that little dot to the glove side of Billy's head. One is red and is yellow. Yup, that's it. Not sure if it would be a print error or what the deal is. The "Red Dot" version is by far the most common, and all of the OPC versions I have seen are of the "Red Dot" variety.
