MAN, MY MEMORY IS SLIPPING BIG TIME! 1977 MAURY WILLS "TURN BACK THE CLOCK"

I tell you, this one has me wondering whether my “old” age is getting to my memory.
I recently came across the 1977 Maury Wills “Turn Back the Clock” card from that sub-set, and I swear I don’t remember it at all!
Now, of course I had it since the 1977 set was the very first set I completed as a kid when I was 8-years-old back during the “Summer of Sam” here in NYC.

But for the life of me when I saw it a couple weeks back I was sitting there, blank as hell, almost angry that I could possibly even NOT remember a card from the 1970’s.
Hilarious...
Just a “random quickie” that popped up recently.
Then again, seems more and more little memories keep slipping by me these days as I creep up to 50.
Ugh.

  1. I remember the Nate Colbert card since his was from only five years earlier. And I remember the Yaz card since the photo looks like so many of his late 60's cards or inserts. But I don't really remember the Wills card since I don't think I had it. It is a neat card though with the Union 76 ball on the scoreboard in the background. Almost looks like something you might have done.

    Don't feel bad G. I have those moments a lot lately as I have been running through all of my old cards. I am seeing things in the cards that I never paid attention to before.
