Default Does anyone recognize this sliver of a 1962 card?

Here's a large pic...
1962toppssliver.jpg

Initially it seemed obvious to me, but then I went through my set binder a bunch of times and I still cannot match this piece up with any baseball card from 1962. It seems to be the right side of a card with (perhaps) an arc of red across the top (with a word, like 'field'?, with a 'd' or 'p' at the end of it) and either a name or word(s) in black at bottom.

Can anyone pinpoint which card this sliver comes from?? Did Topps have any other woodgrain sets in 1962 that were not baseball?

Any help is appreciated and I hope I'm not just plainly missing something that's readily apparent. (If that's the case, I'll erase all of this and hang my head in shame.)

Edited to add:
I'm told some people can't see the pic I posted, so here it is from my flickr account:

Other 60s sets with wood grains:
1969 Topps Brady Bunch
1960 Fleer Casper the Ghost
1966 Topps Football
1966 Topps Hockey

But... my guess is it's either a printer's marking on the side of a sheet or an odd print defect.

A scan of the back of the card would help identify the set it is from.

The 'sliver' is from a very miscut 1962 Topps 'green tint' baseball card. It seemingly shows either another baseball card or possibly something else printed at the same time. Don't know. I don't believe it's a printer's mark or notation, as it looks 'designed.' I only posted the sliver itself, because I was hoping someone would immediately recognize what it was from. I guess it's important to note that on all images of 1962 uncut sheets found on-line, this card is not on the edge, it's towards the middle of the sheet and surrounded by cards on all sides. (That, of course, doesn't definitively prove none of these cards were situated at the edge of a sheet, mainly because little is truly known of the green tint printing process, but who knows.)

Looks like a common print spot(error) to me.

The back is nothing but light gray. No other colors or printing appears there.

So both the front and back are wood grain?

Whoops! I meant to say gray. The back is the standard light gray of 1962 backs, not woodgrain. (Guess I have woodgrain on the brain.) Previous post corrected.
