The Lost Years: 2006 Topps '52 Tom Glavine

One of the downsides of being out of the hobby for a while is coming across unknown products upon your return. One such unknown product for me is the 2006 Topps '52 set.

Because I missed the release and the press that the set would have accompanied it (and, unfortuantely, I'm at work and do not have my Standard Catalog) I have no clue as to why Topps did the back the way the did. I'm not referring to the design- I get that; I'm speaking about the stat line which reads, "Past Year." In it, Topps included Glavine's 1987 stats with the Braves. While the "Life Time" stats line is current, the former is from his debut season. Even the write up on the back speaks of his debut season. 

Like I said, I'm on my lunch hour at work as I write this and do not have my reference book (and it's the only card that I have from the set), so tell me: Did Topps do all of this set that way?
