1961 Topps reverse side

Although card backs are rarely mentioned, the back can be highly fascinating. By offering facts that people might not be aware of, they complete a picture. A treasure trove of interesting, amusing, and practical information on baseball trivia. Children and adults both enjoyed the cartoons on the back. Some of them featured tests on baseball's history or regulations.

In the upper left corner of the back, inside a baseball with the phrase "Topps," is the card number. A three-pane cartoon was featured in addition to the athlete's bio and statistics, as well as a brief description of the player.
