What are your favorite varient cards?
There are definitely a few good things about sportscards saturating the marketplace (this quad jeans card is a nice addition but they did autographs for them all yet again making this the 7th or 8th set with their autos totally devaluing some of the earlier ones which once went for $200-$250 but can be found under $100 now), it forces them to be more creative and at the same time some good stuff is relatively cheap. $28 for this card was a bargain, if those 4 actresses had appeared on a show like Smallville, Alias or Charmed and a card like this was made there would probably be a zero on the end of that price, especially since it's numbered out of /193 (which isn't very low in the world of sportscards).

This card arrived yesterday



I bought it from a website that i found on this board (probably not allowed to name it).
It is a variant, the scan doesn't really show it that well.. but the top part is a bit darker and in the middle of the 2 colors is something that looks like there was stitching.
It's really cool and i'm really happy with it. My first variant!

If I understand correctly, you can name the website, you just can't provide active links for auctions.

Neat one, Sammet. When I have a variant that has a ridge like yours on it, I usually regard it as a seam/crease variant.

I got a Harry Potter GOF Beauxbatons student costume with a wrinkle on the fabric piece.

Thanks guys! It was weird though.. the store i got it from didn't even had it listed as a variant, so i didn't even notice till i got send a bigger scan.

And i shall call it a seam/crease variant from now on Wink i'm still new to cards.. so i'm learning.

Not sure seam/crease is the "official" term, but that is what I call mine Smile. Though I have been known to call my wrinkle variant a "squinched" fabric swatch from time to time.
