You know, it wasn’t until YEARS after this card was issued that I ever realized that “Mr. Cub”, Ernie Banks was actually in the 1977 Topps set, with his face easily recognizable on the Cubs’ team card:
I’m telling you, it wasn’t until the early-80’s, as a high-schooler
thumbing through my cards on a lazy Saturday afternoon that I realized
that the legend was there, smiling as always, right in the middle of
Dave Rosello, Manny Trillo, the Reuschel brothers and Jose Cardenal!
I was psyched, since at the time the only Banks card I had in my
collection were some league-leader cards from the late-60’s since I was a
broke teen who’d spend any $$ he did have on Punk records!
