2012 Topps Oddity

I got these two cards in the same pack recently:

2012 Topps Nathan Eovaldi

Gold Cognac sparkle version

That's not the odd part though.

It's the backs:

Regular Back

Cognac Gold Back

You might not be able to see it here, but the Gold Cognac back is faded and yellow.

It looks like the gold foil or the adhesive leaked all the way through to the back of the card.

Grab some of your own regular and gold cards and compare them.

Maybe Topps used a totally different stock on each kind of card?

Who knows. Just thought it was odd.

See it yet?


  1. I've noticed a similar coloring/discoloration in my Gold Cognac cards. I just assumed that it was part of how the parallel differed slightly form the base card.

    1. I imagine it is just a matter of the actual bonding of the foil, too.


Thanks for commenting and reading.
