Really? I think the '69 Bench is one of the all time classics!

That's exactly what I was saying! I love the 69 Bench, even sans chapeau.

Worthy of consideration. Probably 32 years old in this picture but people just looked a lot older then.

Gotcha! But you are right, would have been even better with a backwards cap like his RC.

This Japanese card from the 1988 Calbee set I think is the worst though (discounting checklists, etc. Slightly out of topic since its post-1980, but a 1988 Calbee is a vintage card by the standards of the Japanese hobby). Its a card of the Tokyo Dome. A domed stadium by any standard is an ugly, boring thing to look at, but the photographer in this one found the best way to maximize those qualities in his work. Its genius. You have the grey ugliness of the Dome itself framed by a grey sky in the background and a grey concrete retaining wall in the foreground, accented by a tree that has no leaves on it. There is nothing that is not grey in this photograph. I actually get physically sick when I look at this card. It is that boring and depressing to look at. I apologize for having made you look at it by posting it here.

Default There's a strip card set

that just lists the position and has a drawing of the player. For more modern a number of the game cards are boring if you don't play the games. Ie APBA, stratomatic, etc.
