1970 Topps reverse side

Very little about card backs are ever discussed, but the reverse side can be very interesting. They complete a picture by providing information that people might not know. A wealth of info. Fun, funny and useful facts with trivia about all aspects of baseball. The cartoons on the back appealed to kids and adults alike. Some included quizzes about baseball history or baseball rules.

1970 Topps grew to a new high of 720 cards

Size of Cards

Standard size , which measure 2½” by 3½”.

The front of these cards feature a color player photograph with a thin white frame and a gray border. The players team is located at the top and the players name (in script font) is located at the bottom along with his position.
