Default B18 blanket card Moriarty infield color?

Hey guys -

I recently picked up this Moriarty blanket card. First, Iím color blind so apologies if this is obvious to others. Iíve been trying to do some research into the infield color and Iím a little confused. I have seen vibrant red infield examples, but then I have examples such as these two for Del Baker (see links below) Thoughts on this Moriarty being black or red - I know itís not white!

it's the Brown infield version. There is no "black" infield. White, Brown or Red only.

Even if they're dirty, the red infields are still pretty distinguishable. Here is one example...

Come on Leon , unique baseball set - not necessarily a card IMO.

My biggest issues are the blue infield blankets. Terribly hard to read the players name.
