While I was scanning in my first wave of the Cutch SP 2020 Challenge cards, I noticed something...different about the backs of the cards I had acquired on the same day.
This got me thinking back to a few months ago when Topps posted on Twitter about the vintage logo Topps currently used for their vintage parallel.
I doubt I changed the production, but feel like I may have actually made Topps aware of their laziness with my posts.
This was the original tweet.
I responded with why don't they make the vintage backs appear more vintage like when they were a Target exclusive.
Two other Twitter trolls tried to argue that they do make vintage stock, but I put them in place when I showed this picture comparing the backs which look identical sans a serial number.
I don't have any 2020 Series 1 to compare if the backs are the same colors for base and vintage, but I can confirm that they are different in Series 2, well at least Andrew McCutchen is.
This is what I was hoping for when I made those tweets. Make the vintage have a more vintage, less glossy, darker card back than any of the traditional cards.
Does anyone know the history of the Topps "umbrella logo"?
What year was it actually printed on the cards?
