Default 1961 Morrell Meats Question

Today I was going through some of my old cards to see if anything was worth grading and I took a hard look at my 1961 Morrell set for the first time in maybe twenty years.
About half the cards have rounded corners. Does anyone know anything about this? Reprints? A second printing? Below you can see Wills as an example.

Someone messed with the rounded ones. Probably for card flipping. I read that the rounded corner cards are easier to control.

All the corners on all the cards are rounded in a remarkably consistent fashion. But I'm inclined toward accepting your explanation, Adam, because I've checked every site I can think of and not seen another "rounded" example. I wish I could remember what the hell I was thinking when I bought them.
