Common Genius: 1981 Topps #473 Jose Cardenal

**In this series we try to show the brilliance of the cards of common players that often get overlooked.**

Everybody credits Oscar Gamble with the best afro in baseball, but let me submit Jose Cardenal's 'fro for your consideration. Jose played for 18 seasons and this is Jose's final Topps base card.

Not only is that an awesomely bad Afro...it's an awesomely bad Topps airbrush job.
