1962 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.

The back was done in orange and black ink, and the contrasting black font and shading background. The card number is in the upper left corner There is also a blurb about the player, drawn as a cartoon, and below that is the player's bio and statistics.
