Score's first set of cards came out in 1988. Though six different colors were used, the basic design of the cards was the same. One of the features was a solid white border just inside the picture.
On most of the cards, the top of the white border was just above the head of the player. It looks like they tried to crop the picture to keep the heads near the top.
Here are a few examples:
And then, Score didn't score. They messed up Jamie Moyer. Look where the top of the white border ended up.
Poor Jamie has a line running straight through his head! So why didn't they crop this picture?
