Suggested reading from Terry Forster's 1985 Topps card

One of the most interesting card backs in the 1985 Topps set belongs to Terry Forster.

The burrito-eating high school multi-sport star wants "plans to 'travel the world.'" Why is "travel the world in quotes? Does Topps doubt his sincerity?

More interesting is the choice of reading material Forster recommends. Centennial is a pretty standard Western epic. However, Rage of Angels hardly seems appropriate for young readers. Here is a part of the plot from Wikipedia:

"Mary Beth however sleeps with Adam one last time, in the process tricking him into impregnating her."

Good clean fun.
