I have a poll up in the corner. Go ahead and vote for me.
About a month ago, I received my first 1976 SSPC cards. Which sent me into a frenzy.
I had to have more. So I now have about 87% of the set. Somehow I'm really low on Royals and Phillies. Which would make more sense if it was 1980....
Anyway, I detailed in an earlier post some of the things that fascinated me about the set.
Here then are 8 more things that grab my attention about 1976 SSPC:
8. Duke Snider
6. Toledo Mud Hens
5. Ray Fosse
4. Willie Randolph in a Pirate uniform
3. Helmet numbers
"The Dodgers gave up on Tom..." The back of Earl Williams card says "He never liked catching..." while Dave Kingman's says "The San Francisco Giants decided they'd had enough of Dave's striking out..."
1. Jimmie Reese
