1975 Topps Page by Page: Page 70 (622-630)

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 70?

Red Sox Cards on the Page  

1. Once again more players than usual to choose from, and only one Red Sox. Another good one. 

Cards that make the 1975 Topps set cool 

Multi-player rookies are cool. Which is good, since there's a few on this page. Cards of young Hall of Famers are cool. While neither Lynn or Hernandez made the cut, they're definitely star plays just starting their careers. I also never realized how cool action shots in empty stadiums could be until I saw Boog and Haney next to each other. Definitely a cool page.

My favorite card on the page 

This is another easy one. The Lynn card stands heads and tails above the others. My brother got me a Cameo video from Lynn for my birthday a couple years ago, and told him I had just finished this set. So, Lynn pulled out his card in the video and went over a brief bio for each of the four players. Beyond awesome.

What would your answers to those last two categories be?


  1. Coolest card as a kid was the LeFlore card (he went to jail!)

    Favorite card is the Boog Powell. The first cardboard appreciation card on my blog and hilarious when I was a kid.

  2. Keith Hernandez really deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Hopefully someday.
