The design, though, was about as basic as you can get. It is just a picture, and the player's name, position, and team.
Topps did mix up the font colors, however. For the Cubs, the most popular combination was yellow first name, white last name, yellow team name, white position. The next most-used was with the white and yellow reversed. They had just a couple that used red or blue in the mix. All together there are six different color combinations for the Cubs.
My favorite shows up on just one card.
I guess I'm pretty partial to using blue and red on Cubs cards!
