Default wrong backs

My Dad is working on a 1960 set and he showed me something today I had never seen before He has card #289 Willie Jones, and then he had another Willie Jones with card #291 Bob Keegan on the reverse. Anyone ever seen this example before? It's perfect so it doesn't look like a sheet got fed wrong or something, more akin to the '52 Topps Page/Sain situation, but I've never come across it before.

I have a lot of wrong backs from 1963 and 1964 and most have the backs inverted versus the fronts. Check and see if thats the case with yours.... if so, you have a sheet that was fed in backwards and hence the wrong back.

That was my first thought, but they both face the same way as every normal card in the set. Hence my comment that it wasn't a case of the sheet being fed wrong.

If the cards front and backs are the directions they are supposed to be it is because they loaded the wrong fronts. If it was more modern think sheet A fronts with sheet B backs loaded the proper direction.

Thought of that too, but the numbers are only 2 apart, 289 and 291, which seemed odd, wouldn't they be on the same sheet?

I do not know the layout of those sheets but I have never seen a sheet that had the numbers in order.

Wrong backs on pre war cards has been a collecting niche *subset, for some, me included. This is sort of a wrong back (but when I think wrong back I think E92 series)...

Just to keep with the prewar thoughts, here are a few of the e92 wrong backs Leon was referring to.

Count me among those in the niche subset. I grab all of these that I can. They just don't come up that often pre-war outside of Play Ball. Here's a nice example-
