FYI, card #323 Willard Schmidt sometimes has a variation on the reverse side where some of the stats are missing near the bottom of the card. This variety is tougher than the regular one...you might want to check to see which one you have.
I don't believe I have ever seen anything published about this variation, but there are two distinct variants. The first is missing the letters "JOR" in "MAJOR" and the number of games lost is blank. The second is missing nearly all of the letters in "MAJOR" except for the "M" and both the number of games won and lost is blank. Several other lifetime stats are printed lightly.
Just out of curiousity, does anyone here know the printing history of the 1956T cards? Why some are very glossy, and others have a flat finish, both types found in approx. equal proportions? And why there are subtle printing differences found on certain cards?
Bingo! There's more difference than just that as well. O-Pee-Chee printed the VENDING box cards for Topps, for vending machine distribution and it was imperative that these cards be manufactured to allow ease of dispensing ONE at a time from the slot so that the next card did NOT "hang up" on the one being dispensed. This could only be done by issuance of a different "surface finish" to reduce friction as one card slid off the vending pile. So you have one type of 1956 with a high gloss, and another with a complete absence of gloss that appears to have simply had it's finish "eaten" off by less than desireable storage environment. But that isn't the case. Alot of these 1956s were MANUFACTURED without gloss. Also, the vending cards appear to be more finely cut (less serration) with more careful calibration of tolerances. With all due credit, I learned this from George Hober (Green Hornet on Ebay), who specializes in 1956s.
