The Continuing Saga: 1971 Topps

Steve from Wait 'Till Next Year sent me a couple of '71 Topps from the needs list...in return he'll get some from his '70 needs list...it's nice when things work out like that...Here are the cards:

#16 Ken Singleton


I love this card...Ken has been pretty much unknown to me until recently...he was a three time All-Star and finished 3rd and 2rd in MVP voting in 1977 and 1979 when he was with the Baltimore Orioles.

#105 Tony Conigliaro

Some nice airbrushing.


#110 Bill Mazeroski

After winning the 1960 World Series, Bill went on to sell razors for Gillette:



#330 World Series Game 4


This would could have been entered into Dinged Corners call for great examples of "text on cards." It is not quite as good as the next card in the series for Game #5 in which "B. Robinson Commits Robbery."

Complete Set: 752 cards
223/752 = 29.65%
