1971 Topps Baseball Card #127 - Danny Thompson

Here are two 1971 Topps Baseball Cards of #127, Danny Thompson. 

The card on the right is missing the black ink on the reverse.  It is not a variation but just a printing error.

Danny played in the major leagues from 1970 to 1976.  He was diagnosed with leukemia in 1973.  He passed away in 1976 less than 10 weeks after playing his last game.  He was 29 years old and left behind a wife and two children.
