What’s wrong with this picture?

This holiday season, I was able to add a few new baseball cards to my collection. Among them was this Gary Carter insert from 2012. Part of a 30-card set inserted one per box in retail blasters of Topps Update, it highlights the blockbuster 1984 trade that brought Hall of Famer Gary Cater to the Mets.

The gimmick is the hat logo patch that’s embedded within the baseball card. And if you’ll notice, the Mets logo in my card is upside down. I’d have to guess that its an oddity that escaped Topps quality control. The example pictured in the Cardboard Connection’s guide to the insert series has the logo patch aligned correctly.
