topps or o-pee-chee?

the first time i did this, i went with an apparent text variation.  this time, take a look at this 1991 keith comstock card - it's a team variation, right?  classic o-pee-chee.
well, no.  it's a topps error.  o-pee-chee stopped doing the team variations after 1987 (you'd know that if you'd been following my other blog).  for some reason, topps jumped on the error bandwagon (and not the uer bandwagon, either) in 1991.  here's the o-pee-chee card, which is identical to the corrected topps version (on the front, anyway)
comstock had no affiliation with the cubs during his 6-year major league career, which ended after just one-third of an inning in 1991.
