'Fros Forever: Oscar Gamble 1975 Topps

**'Fros Forever! The rallying cry for fans of the hairstyle that made the 70's so awesome.**


I had intended originally to post all of my afro cards in one big marathon on New Year's Day but I ended up having work and my grand scheme was put on the back burner. But now we'll do them on a fairly regular basis and give each a grade on a scale from 1-10.  One being the equivalent of Phil Spector's fro during his murder trial and 10 being...well...I'm not sure.  Either Dr. J or Bob Ross.

Today's entry is from 1976 of Oscar Gamble.  I purposely didn't go for one the all-time great Oscar Gamble cards because that would set such a high standard that the other cards just couldn't compare too.  This fro is being crushed by a batting helmet and seems to be partial in shadow but I would still rank it a 6 out of 10!
