Default 1987 Topps Don Mattingly #500 Birth Year Oddity / Possible Variation

Anyone own a Topps Vault and/or proof of Mattingly's 1987 Topps base card?

I've never seen a version with a correctly placed, non-italicized birth year on back. The 62 is always askew and looks hand-corrected. Since his text mentions the birth year misunderstanding, I'm wondering if there exists a version with 1961 on back (as all his previous issues stated) or a normally printed 1962.

Most of my Topps proofs have blank backs...
