1975 Topps Page by Page: Page 49 (433-441)

 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 49?

Red Sox Cards on the Page  

0. Not this time.

Cards that make the 1975 Topps set cool 

Cards with an all-star logo are cool. 

My favorite card on the page 

I'm going to go with the Larry Demery. Why? Because of the signature placement going up the left side of the card. It really stands out as an unusual placement. I can only assume that Topps did that because of the dark jacket he's wearing. They knew you'd never see the signature in the usual placement. So, that's an impressive amount of thought put into the design even if it looks a little weird. It's also the only reason I noticed they did something similar with the Bobby Heise, although not as dramatic. They shrunk his signature and tucked it over his white jersey to make sure it stands out. In fact, all the signatures are in different spots, with varying levels of success in displaying them. Something I never noticed before.

What would your answers to those last two categories be?


  1. Messersmith was the king then and is now.

    1. I would have been disappointed with any other answer from you.

  2. What Night Owl said, especially since Messersmith has a cool first name. ;)
