Another high number rarity, this "Pop 1"/Highest Graded Ben Chapman 1952 Topps #391 offering has been signed on the verso of the card, the only card from this prestigious set exhibiting a reverse side autograph. Considering that the #391 Ben Chapman subject portrayed an incorrect image of Cleveland Indians "Sam" Chapman who retired after the end of the 1951 campaign, one can fully comprehend why Cincinnati Reds coach Ben Chapman signed the flipside that includes the accurate Ben Chapman bio and statistics. Of further interest is the fact that the Topps Chewing Gum Company posted the correct Cincinnati Reds logo on the front, with this extremely eclectic "Pop 1" highest graded obscurity one of only two signed '52 Topps Chapman subjects in existence!
