The Last December Card Show Post

Here's the rest of what I got at the December card show.

1971 Topps 62
Rico Carty was a great hitter but was limited by injuries throughout his career.  Joe Torre's hat seems to be barely in his head.

1972 Topps 172
Topps occasionally put In Action or similar cards in sets to fill out their planned card count.  I'm not a fan.  Evans appears to be levitating to catch a pop fly.

1973 Topps 1
Forget the crease, this is a perfect card.

1973 Topps 266
Mike looks very intense but someone probably should have told him that he is not in the batter's box....

1975 Topps 154
And again.....

1975 Topps 499
Marty started for the Braves for 5 years and was the epitome of a light hitting middle infielder.  His career slugging percentage was .347.  He did manage to drive in 57 runs in 1973 but didn't manage even 40 in any other season.

1975 Topps 589
We end our card show posts with the 1975 Braves team.  Clyde King managed during 5 different seasons in his career but his only full season was with the Giants in 1969.  Clyde finished the 1974 season with the Braves after replacing Eddie Mathews but he was gone after 134 games in 1975.
