Common Genius: 1971 O-Pee-Chee #76 Ted Savage

A couple of weeks ago I completed a trade with Off Hiatus Baseball and some of the cards I sent to Tony L were from 1971 O-Pee-Chee. I selfishly held back one card however as I loved it too much to part ways with it. Sorry Tony, but I had to do it. Just take a look at the reverse side of Ted Savage's #76. I have always loved the different backs for O-Pee-Chee vs. Topps cards but the floating head that seems to smash through the back of the card like Kool-Aid Man brings it to the next level of greatness.

Even disregarding the back, Ted's base card is one of my favorites and has just about the most amount of players you can get on a single card that isn't a team shot. I'm seeing parts of six Brewers on there.
