For the fourth and final year, the Topps football cards had a rub off feature on its cards. On the backs of the 1961 Topps football cards, there is a white box that that, when scratched with a coin, will Make a Photo. Cards where the white box was scratched, are considered to have a "Minor Flaw" and are lowered by one grade, assuming the scratching process did not damage the card.
