A DECENT AIRBRUSH JOB THAT WAS INEXPLICABLY CUT SHORT...

The 1973 Walt “No Neck” Williams card is an interesting one.
Check it out:


Weird how the Topps folks went and airbrushed the “C” for Cleveland onto the old red White Sox cap, doping a decent job of it at that.
Yet you can clearly see the “S” from “Sox” on the right side of the jersey along with the red pin-striping of the Chicago jersey.
Reminds me of the 1972 Rich McKinney card with the same type of incomplete airbrushing job.
Gotta say though, I love stuff like this. Made it so much fun to notice these things as a collector.
Sadly, Williams passed away this January at the age of 72, leaving us with one of the best nicknames of the 1970’s, or any other decade for that matter.
RIP “No Neck”...
