Default What's your favorite Topps cartoon?

There were lots of great cartoons on Topps backs over the years, but I think my favorite is the one on Ron Kline's 1959 card, #265, that makes fun of him for being fat several years before the card was issued

While chasing my '59 set I came across the Don Rudolph card.




The cartoon notes that he is married to a 'professional dancer'.



What it DOESN'T mention that his professional dancer wife was well-known Baltimore stripper Patti Waggin. I found a bunch of fun material on the lovely Ms Waggin while researching my blog post on the card.

Not a humorous one, but the 1954 Dave Hoskins RC speaks to just how rough the early African American players had it trying to break through the color barrier.

Oh wow, I have that card and I don't think I ever looked that close at the back or noticed that cartoon. Thanks for posting it.

I have the original art for the '64 topps Koufax card so it's always been my favorite, but that Don Rudolph card is now a close 2nd.

Great stuff guys. Makes me think I spend too much time looking at the front of my cards! Posting this so I don't show up to the party empty handed.
