103 billy goodman

Type 2 variation on 1959 Topps 103 Billy Goodman. High in the top border, above and to the right of the “y” in the name “billy,” there is a red line just under 5mm in length. The mark is similar to the one on 412 Stan Lopata. The card must be off center to the bottom for it to appear. This is a difficult variation to find because of its location on the card, and a very difficult variation to find in high grade. This variation occurs on fewer than 5% of examples according to a survey of cards.
