I found 2 cards with the same error or variation on the reverse first card is number 101 Jamie Macoun and the second card is number 511 Harry Howell they both have 2 holograms on the back. Macoun has one just to the right of the NHL logo and the other is above and to the right of his picture. Howell's card has the 2 holograms in his bio, the first one is on the last line of the bio and the other one is above and to the right of the first one.

This set is great, really fun to go through but the amount of hologram variations makes it a nightmare for completionists. These are the ones I identified and all the different holograms that came in the same box (high and low series):

The first "90" hologram is the horizontal/upside down upper deck text with a row of small 90s and a row of carrots.

The second "90" hologram is the same horizontal/upside down upper deck text but with large 90s and a row of crossed hockey sticks

The third variation is the upper deck text stacked on two lines directly above each other with baseballs. The upper deck text is shinier here than in the "90" variations but there is no "90" or "91" in the hologram.

Lastly, the "91" hologram; upper deck text but one word right-side up, one upside down and a glossy "91" can be seen. Just like the baseball variation, the upper deck text is shinier than the "90" variations.

If you thought you were done collecting that PC player there might be a few more variations to hunt for!
