Well, it's been a good long while. Here's some soccer rev negs, as promised once.

199() Question of Sport Soccer #NNO Stefan Schwarz

1974 Ediguias Portuguese Munich 74 # Rivelino. Brazil crest is on the wrong side of the shirt.

1978 Acropolos Press Argentina ’78 #62 Archie Gemmill (Portuguese issue). Crest on wrong side, letters in the background reversed.

1982 FKS World Cup Special 1982 #51 Francois Van Der Elst. Notice where his crest is compared to the others.

1982 FKS World Cup Special 1982 #114 Hans-Peter Briegel

1986 Emlyn Hughes Team Tactix Ipswich Town #8 Mark Brennan (fisons)

1986 Vaux Breweries #23 Peter Shilton

1988 Daily Mirror Alf Ramsey’s England 12 #347 Glenn Hoddle

1988-89 Sun Pocket of Soccer #20 Paul Gascoigne

1988-89 Sun Pocket of Soccer #21 Peter Beardsley. Lots of flip-flopped crests in this post.

1988-89 Sun Pocket of Soccer #31 Ruud Gullit

1989-90 Sun-Euroflash Soccer Collection #97 Mark Wright

1989-90 Sun-Euroflash Soccer Collection #302 Robert Connor

1990 Orbis Football Collection #FO85 Richard Shaw. Look at the ad boards in the background.

1990 World Cup Bubble Gum 60 Years of World Cup # Claudio Cannigia (India). Can't imagine how hard it would be find any of these cards...

1990-91 Pro Set #259a and #259b Steven Yates. Unlike most of these, this card acually has a corrected version.

1990-91 Sun Soccer Collection #300 David Robertson. That JVC is pretty obvious.

1990-91 Sun Soccer Collection #369 Neil Cooper

1991-92 Merlin Shooting Stars #141a Ian Brightwell. This one has a corrected version but I don't have the scan for it.

1991-92 Merlin Shooting Stars #162a and #162b Neil Webb. Corrected and error.

1991-92 Merlin Shooting Stars #243a Simon Tracey. This one also has a corrected version. Those letters in the background look pretty odd.

1991-92 Merlin Shooting Stars #244a John Pemberton. Again, this one has a corrected version.

1991-92 Merlin Shooting Stars #396a and #396b Darron McDonough. Error and corrected. Not a lot of quality control in this Merlin set.

1992 Top Trumps Today’s Strikers Middlesbrough #6D Bernie Slaven

1993 Pacific NPSL #2 Jason Dieter (back). You can tell because the white on his jersey is on the opposite side of the other jerseys in this scan.

1996 Match & Sported #25 Tony Yeboah. The Puma is reversed.

1996 Match & Sported #59 Ryan Giggs. Nice, a Giggs.

1996 One Touch Premier Strikers #? Trevor Sinclair

1996 Panini Estrellas Europas #48 Julen Guerrero Lopez

1997 Upper Deck Juventus #13 Antonio Girauldo. I suspect this is an error based on the ad board letters, but don't know for sure.

1997 Upper Deck Seleccion Espanola #32 Emilio Butragueno. This one is just delightful to me. And it's a rare Upper Deck later period error.

1998 Brooke Bond PG Tips International Soccer Stars #10 Bebeto. The Master Card is reversed.

1998 Upper Deck Juventus #16 Giuseppe Meazza. One of the sides is a reverse, though it is impossible to tell which one due to the scarce detail. It's clearly the same picture with him facing opposite sides.

1998 Upper Deck Leggenda Azzurra 15 Luigi Riva. Most likely a rev neg due to the placement of the crests on the shirts.

1998 Upper Deck Rangers #7 Bob McPhail. Look at the letters and numbers on the wall behind his head.

2001 Pro Entertainments #166 Diego Maradona (Argentina issue)

Random Smorgasbord

1988 Star Orange-Blue Print Dwight Gooden #11 (UER, unlisted). Found this one after I had made the post about Star Co. cards earlier in the year. I like this one because there's a lot of detail.

1988 Star Gregg Jefferies #3 (UER, unlisted). Also only found out about this Star Co. card later after the original post.

1979 Topps #129 Norm Thompson (unissued proof). I only know about this from a Keith Olbermann blog post. Since it's a proof, there is probably only one in the world and we'll probably never see it with our own eyes.

1977 Topps #557B Jerry White (unissued proof). Also only know about this from Olbermann.

1992 Front Row Willie Stargell Promos #2 (UER, unlisted). Stargell was a lefty and the #8 on the jersey is on the wrong side.

1992 Topps Magazine #72 Minnesota Twins (UER, unlisted, photo on left). Compare with the same photo from the Sports Illustrated cover on the right pic.

1989 Franchise Game #18 Cris Collinsworth (UER, unlisted). He wore #80 and the ) on his jersey in this pic is the first number appearing.

1982-83 Souhaits Renaissance Keychain Detroit Red Wings #NNO Walt McKechnie (unlisted). Hard to tell from the tiny scan, but his jersey logo is facing the wrong way.

1983 TCMA Tri-Cities Triplets 23 Jim Cesario. Not sure if this is reversed or not, but the writing on the jersey looks like it may be angled in the opposite way from what the Triplets uniforms look like in teammates' cards from the set. Also he is posing as a lefty, while he was a righty in real life.

1976 TCMA 1938 Chicago Cubs #PHCA Phil Cavaretta (middle photo) and #RICO Ripper Collins (far left photo) (unlisted). What's bizarre about these is that they do not appear to be reverse negatives of the photographs but the logo on the hats are reversed. You can tell by comparing the Cavaretta error in the middle with the correct photo on the far right, which does not have a backwards C.

1988 Monty Gum #26 Houston Oilers Tackled From Behind (UK). All the numbers and letters in this pic are obviously reversed.

1988 Swell Greats #66 Yale Lary (UER, unlisted). The 28 on his uniform is reversed and he kicked with his right foot, while he is kicking with his left in this photo.

1933 O-Pee-Chee Jimmy Ward Series A. The series B card is pictured here, but I read somewhere that the Series A photo is reversed. Haven't actually seen a scan though.

1964-67 Beehive Group III #41A Bobby Hull. The error is on the right with the reversed 7 and Blackhawks logo, while the corrected version is on the left.

1964-67 Beehive Group III #55A Fred Standfield. Error on the left, corrected on the right.

1964-67 Beehive Group III #80A Eddie Joyal. Red Wings logo is facing the wrong way.

1964-67 Beehive Group III #94A. Floyd Smith. Like the Joyal card, the Red Wings logo is reversed.

2001 Upper Deck Legends of New York #147 Elston Howard (UER, unlisted). Found out about this after my post on post-1995 rev negs last year. Found it on the Trading Card Database website. Yet another Reversed Yankees logo.

This card from the 1964 Topps baseball set is subtle but has Hank Aaron batting lefty.

Next post will be all about soccer cards from around the world...
