Marvelous Miscuts No. 1: 1971 Topps Frank Baker

I love miscut cards and here are some of my favorites.

I'm starting to work on completing my 2020 Topps Heritage set in the 1971 Topps style. The 1971 Topps set is my all-time favorite and I finished the set in 2014 but I'm always on the look out for those so unique 1-of-1 cards that were misprinted. 

Frank Baker is card No. 213 in the 1971 set and the uncut sheet of cards was not only shifted left-to-right- it was off top-to-bottom as the New York Yankees team name was completely trimmed off the top of the card. The top of card No. 200 which describes Game 2 of the 1970 National League Championship series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds takes up the bottom quarter of the card. 


Here's the reverse. Baker played 43 more games with the Yankees in 1971 and then spent two seasons with the Baltimore Orioles in 1973 and 1974.

I love miscuts. That's a good one. I found another one recently that I plan to do a post on.

When cards are slightly miscut... it's not that cool. This card is hella cool.
Here's the mother of all miscut cards:
