Hi I recently acquired a 1952 Johhny Lujack PSA 4 with a shadowed image of Lujack on the back. I havent been able to find any similiar cards and was wondering if anyone knew anything about these shadow backs. it is a clean image of the front of card just transposed on back. not bled through, not smudged at all so doesnt look like it was stuck to another card. any info appreciated

Do you happen to have any photos that you can share? Would love to see the card.

I did some research, and found that there are 2 varieties of Johnny Lujack cards (he is still living, 97 years old I believe!)

The backs I saw were all a white cardboard, so I wonder if the cards were stored in a stack, and there was some moisture, causing one image to transfer to the normally blank back of the other card? Just a guess!
