The Continuing Saga: Topps '71

At the card show I was able to add 13 '71 Topps to my collection including my first high number number short printed cards.  I really love the Cookie Rojas, Lindy McDaniel, and George Spriggs cards for their great action shots.

I like the Royals '71 cards because a bunch of them are action shots. Besides the ones you have there, Lou Piniella's also an action pic, as is Rich Severson, which I bought over the weekend (there's possibly others I dont' know about). ... I especially love the Rojas card.

The 1971 Topps cards are pop-culture-vintage-photography beautiful, no doubt about it.

PS There need to be more ballplayers named Buck.
