Talkin Bout My (Second) Variation

Well, the seventh and final (according to an insider at Topps) has been discovered. As someone pointed out in a reply to my last post with the Hanley variation, the seventh super short print variation is indeed an Adrian Gonzalez #102 card with a Rangers logo instead of a Padres logo. So, here are the seven variations:

58: Conor Jackson: Rays logo
70: Glavine: “Thom” Glavine
102: Adrian Gonzalez: Rangers logo
346: Fred Lewis: picture is Randy Winn (bat on shoulder)
407: Randy Winn: picture is Fred Lewis (bat just above last name)
445: John Smoltz: Red Sox uniform
488: Hanley Ramirez: Red Sox uniform

And since I finally finished opening all of my Heritage cards (for now at least), I started sorting them. No Conor Jackson variations. No Glavine Variations. I get to #102 and I found about 30 of these (I opened a lot of packs!):

And one of these (I opened a lot of packs!):

Nice to find amongst so many commons.
