Some real nice choices Todd.

The uniform on Dave Roberts almost looks as if they colored it more. I never liked the small All-Star Rookie cups that came along in the 1970's. I preferred the big trophy's that appeared through 1972.

Let me guess, it tells the story of how Topps airbrushed all the Mets in the photo to become Astros? I still find it hilarious!!

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Really enjoy this thread. After returning to the hobby from a 25 year break...it's good to see there's some appreciation for a time when players didn't have thousands of autographed rookie cards and variations. Love he action theme of this set and I'll have to add some to my collection for sure.

Close between Bench and Aaron I have a few blank backs that I pulled from packs back in the day. Last set to be issued in series. So holds a place in many collectors hearts including mine.

The Clemente card is my favorite in the set. Last one of Roberto, and it's such a cool looking shot of him at the plate, just waiting to line a double to the opposite field, on a fly ball that no human being but Roberto Clemente could have caught!

Noticing Jerry Grote in the Clemente shot made me think of something. Many of the shots in the NL for the '73 set were taken at Shea Stadium, which player is found on most cards for the set? My guess is Grote is in a few shots.

You also see a lot of the A's as the team opposite the featured player.

For unknown reasons, this is my favorite 1973 Topps card.
