1966 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 has the card number in the upper left corner, inside a baseball with the word "Topps." There is also a blurb about the player, drawn as a cartoon, and below that is the player's bio and statistics.
