YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY...

Go figure! Even though I actually started collecting the 1975 set when it came out 38 years ago, I NEVER knew or even realized that the all-stars in the set, much like Topps 1971 football set, were all color coordinated with a specific boder scheme: yellow and red.
Yeah, I know, DUH! I feel dumb even writing this here on the blog!
Somehow this never dawned on me! And upon coming to this realization a few days ago I was stunned. I can't believe with all my card collecting mania over almost four decades I never caught on to it.
Wow...
Anyway, with this fact slapping me in the face, I also realized that when I created the "missing" Reggie Jackson all-star card in one of my first posts on this blog, I had it wrong.
So today I offer up the CORRECT "missing" Reggie Jackson all-star card, with the correct color borders as per the 1975 Topps scheme.
I have righted a wrong, and I feel the world is back on track again...

1975 Reggie card as issued by Topps.
Corrected with yellow & red color scheme and All-Star status.

  2. John...Love the 75 All Stars. I was most disappointed with the Bobby Murcer Card. Air brushed Giants hat. What a great pic of Bobby at the old Yankee Stadium. You should do a new one
