2013 Topps Baseball Release Countdown #7

 For this collector, the front of a card should always take precedence over the back of the card. It is, after all, the front- it contains the design that it will be judged by, and is that which we will remember it by. It contains the photos which bring back memories, the team logos which we identify ourselves with, and is where you're more likely to find a signature.

1960 Topps #7
1960 Topps #7 Master and Mentor (Willie Mays, Bill Rigney) Front

And so with that in mind, I find it only fitting that the back of this card focuses not on Willie Mays- but on his manager, Bill Rigney. I mean, how often do you find a card back that's more memorable than the front?
