OH NO!!!'s Poor Vintage Collection #3

The cards that are featured in this recurring theme were found by my father strewn about the floor of an abandoned farm building near my childhood home. There were approximately 1000 cards that laid undisturbed from the late 60's to early 90's when he discovered them. Most are in poor condition because exposure to the elements. He recently gave them to me and I will feature them here on my blog.
1962 Topps #25 Ernie Banks

I'm not sure what happened to this card but it looks like it mayb have been stepped on when it was laying in that outbuilding by and animal or a Cardinals fan. If it was a Cards fan, why didn't they just hide him in a nice cardboard box instead of throwing him on the floor?
