I mean, black frame on top, white on the bottom, and I always assumed that all cards were printed right side up. It didn't occur to me that they could print one row of cards and have the row above printed upside down. The back of the card includes the card number of Glenn's first Topps card (1979 Topps #715), the date of his first major league home run (09/23/1978), the date of his first four-hit game (05/06/1979), and first major league grand slam (08/31/1981).

  • How many cards of this player do I own?: 15 cards.
Tomorrow's card will be: 1985 Topps #514. Post will arrive at 1:00 PM CST. Until tomorrow everybody.
