In the 1987 Fleer set, the pictures of many players overlapped the top border of the card, in which case just the player's head would be seen on the blue border. On Cory Snyder's card, they tried to get a little fancy by doing the same thing with the baseball heading towards his mitt. They must have had a lot of trouble with that shape, however, as you can see a lot of the background breaking the top border in addition to the ball.
