Marvelous Miscuts No. 3: 1975 Topps No. 510 Vida Blue

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

Everyone loves the miscut cards that stop you in your tracks and make you ask "How did this get made?" But I also love the miscut cards that are more subtle and give some of the greatest cards ever made some more character. Vida Blue's 1975 Topps card is damn near a piece of art with its vibrant pink border paired with yellow that matches his A's jersey perfectly. 

But the card is far from perfect, it is off center left-to-right and up-and-down and you can see just a hint of Amos Otis's card No. 520 at the very top of the card.

On the reverse we learn that Vida's middle name is Rochelle.
