Basic technique needed...

My brain is apparently not functioning today as I am trying to so
something that seems like it should be simple, but isn't.

I have 2 stacks, Stack1 and Stack2. Stack2 has 2 cards "Card1" and
"Card2".  Stack1 is the active topStack (topLevel) and Stack2 is visible
to one side, but not the active stack.

>From a script in Stack1 I want to change the visible card (from say
Card1 to Card2) in Stack2 WITHOUT bringing Stack2 to the front (making
it the topstack). I can NOT seem to do this today!

go card 2 of stack "Stack2" OR go card "Card2" of stack "Stack2" OR open
card "Card2" of stack "Stack2" and so on all make Stack2 the topstack.

How do you change the card in a visible stack without making it the top
