    How do I tell apart the 05-06 Rookie Showcase versions? (Regular & Beckett)

    I'm hoping somebody can refresh my memory in regards to the 2005-06 Upper Deck Rookie Showcase cards. There were 2 different versions, the regular version and a Beckett Promo version. From what I recall the only difference is a slight variation in the text color on the front of the card, but I can't remember which version is which.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, and I've included an example from the set to show which cards I'm talking about.

    Seems like the Promo version is a little ... lighter? I could be wrong, as I've seen different scans of the 05-06 UD Rookie Showcase cards, and depending on the quality of the scan, the colours may be a little different. So I would think the promo is a lighter text colour (and background colour) while the regular version is darker. Just my best guess. If you can find HD photos of the two cards, maybe you can confirm it.

    Best of luck!

    Edit:

    Look at the two Lundqvist's on COMC :)

    Yes the difference is just a matter of the text/border color, that much I do remember. I just can't remember which is the darker version and which is the lighter one.

    From those scans it looks like the Beckett version is lighter colored one. Thanks

    Pewter? Usually pewter does not have yellow in it (like gold, copper, bronze.) See Pacific for use of pewter parallel, it is like a dark gray.

    Thanks Dennis, that's how I recalled but couldn't find clarification anywhere online. I know Beckett did a write-up about the different versions years back but I wasn't able to track it down anywhere.
