Can anyone tell me the difference between these two card manufacturers cards?

1976 Hostess hand cut and 1976 Hostess Twinkies hand cut.
1969 Milton Bradley hand cut and 1972 Milton Bradley hand cut.

Both players cards in these examples look identical to me, front and back, yet PSA has them both. How can you tell the difference?

    With the Hostess cards, there is a black stripe that runs vertically on the backs of the Twinkies cards as you are looking at the stats (see attached scan). There is no black stripe on the regular Hostess cards.

    Here are a 1969 MB (on top), and a 1972 MB (on bottom).

    Look at the numeral 1 in any red line of type on the back. If the #1 has a base, it is a 1972 card. If there is no base to the #1, it is a 1969 card.
