1975 Topps Page by Page: Page 16 (136-144)

I'm sure that you all remember that I finally completed my 1975 Topps set. 

Now that it's done I thought it would be fun to look through the set and talk about it. Going page by page seemed like a good way to go about it. Hopefully you find it interesting to read what I have to say.

How about we continue with page 16?

Red Sox Cards on the Page:  0. Can't have one on every page.

Cards that make the 1975 Topps set cool: While none of the cards on the set match the coolness categories that got me interested in the 1975 Topps set in the first place, it's always fun seeing older uniforms that aren't in use anymore. In that case, the card of Terry Forster is certainly cool. How can you not love those White Sox uniforms?

My favorite card on the page: Have to go with the Steve Garvey right in the middle. It has the glorious All-Star star in the corner, and he is by far the best player on the page.

What would your answers to those last two categories be?


  1. Hi! I have cards that were left by my ex-BF. Is there an online source or app that can help categorize and log which cards you do have and what kind of condition it's in? Obv not a collector here but who knows, I might have one that's worth something!

    1. Several, probably. Might be tricky to navigate if you're not sure what you're looking at or for though. I'll see if I can help you out. Thanks for reading.

  2. Favorite and coolest is without a doubt the Garvey. This is the first card after his break out year as the NL MVP, a write-in starter for the All-Star Game and leading the Dodgers to the World Series. Plus I pulled his mini card that year?

    (Runner up: Mickey Stanley for being one of the cards I pulled out of the first 3 packs I ever bought).

  3. A. I love seeing the Oakland Coliseum in the background of so many 70's cards... including the 75's. I'm not 100% certain... but I think that Bob Reynolds was photographed there. Maybe Pina too... although I'm not as confident.

    B. Garvey... and it isn't even close.
