Vintage Fridays: Dave McNally, 1975 Topps #26
One of the great things about the 1975 Topps set is that I have previously posted 10 Orioles cards on this blog from the set, and there are still border combinations that I haven't displayed. Here's a new one: electric strawberry-banana. When those bright colors are combined with the Miami palm-tree backdrop to Dave McNally's photo, it leaves you thinking warm thoughts. We've got 34 degrees with a chance of snow showers here in Baltimore this evening, and forecasted highs in the low 20s early next week. So I can use all the warmth I can get.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
