Sorry, I know this isn't a baseball card but wanted to see what everyone though of this card. 1972 Topps Mercury Morris, this card appears to have the back printed on the wrong side and the front is blank, the card is also heavily creased. Is this scrap?

I would imagine that a set (issue, player, or team) collector may be interested in adding it to a collection

Blank backs, blank fronts, wrong fronts and back combos can be found pretty regularly under searches for "Topps variation" or "Topps error". They do not get recognition in master set checklists and so value as Neal mentioned usually involves whether the player is a star and desirable to collectors of that player as an oddity. My experience is blank backs with a star front seem more in demand than blank fronts. But I do not collect football cards.

That is awesome!!! It is scrap for sure. I have never collected football so I can not say how rare it is because I have never looked. Maybe it was the only one taken from the factory or maybe someone took a pickup load.

I love the card too! Morris was my favorite player when I was growing up, even had the white jersey with the aqua numbers outlined in white and orange with the same colors wrapped around the sleeves. This was back around '71 or '72. Nice memory for me.

I got this awesome printing error last month thanks to a fellow member. It is baseball and pre 1980.
