Description

Graded 40 VG by SGC. A pre-war printing oddity is found with this 1941 Play Ball card that displays #50 Johnny Cooney on the front, but contains the upside down reverse of #71 Joe DiMaggio. This crease-free specimen is off-centered and reveals soft corners that are typical for the issue. While it is relatively common for 1941 Play Ball wrong backs to surface with low-number fronts and high-number backs, this interesting piece is a true wrong back as both front and reverse exhibit a more difficult high number.
