1959 Topps reverse side

Very little about card backs is ever discussed, but the reverse side can be very interesting. They complete a picture by providing information that people might not know.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the cards were a wealth of information. 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.

So today I will start a new chapter in looking at the reverse side of the 1950s and 1960s Cubs baseball cards. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Sorry I had to watermark the photos, but there is a blog out there that steals my ideas and steals all my photos.
