The variation between the 2 printings are mainly on the back the photos are identical although if you really get nitty gritty they are cropped a hair different. The first printing which is much scarcer and is called var 2 has a solid line on the back while the second printing carries a dashed line.
As for the checklist I'll list the 24 players added those will only come in variation 1 the second printing style the rest come in both variations.
