One Topps typesetter was cap-crazy in 1952

While doing some research for my most recent 1952 Topps-style custom card, I had occasion to read the back of the '52T Chico Carrasquel card.

I had never before noticed how many nouns were capitalized for no apparent reason. Since I don't recall noticing that previously, I have to assume that not all '52T cards were similarly affected.

Note the capital letters on;
  • Record (line 2)
  • League (line 3)
  • Triple (line 4)
  • Play (line 4)
  • Big (line 8)
  • Leaguer (line 8)
