Team Set Tuesday: 1969 Topps Seattle Pilots Team Set

Sometimes Team Set Tuesdays posts just aren't meant for Tuesdays...I've finally completed my 1969 Topps Seattle Pilots team set and so I now have a copy and all the original Seattle Pilots cards made by Topps.  Well, let me take that back...there are some variations of the '69 set that have the yellow and white coloring of the name reversed...they are much rarer than the regular version and I gave up on trying to include those in the  team set.  I guess I'm not a true completist.

#17 Mike Marshall
#42 Tommy Harper
#62 Chico Salmon
#83 Mike Ferraro
#111 Johnny Morris
#135 Tommy Davis
#178 Ray Oyler
#209 Larry Haney
#233 Steve Barber
#254 Joe Schultz
This is my favorite card of the team set mainly because of the back side of the card and the great caricature of Pilot's one-and-only coach Joe Schultz.
