These are great! Thanks...

I love the 72s for many reasons. I was 9 in 79 and started then, so every once in a while I would have a 72 card surface among friends and it was considered ancient and cool. When I was 10 I got a 72 Mays and I was the coolest kid in the neighborhood. Cost me a wrinkled 76 Babe Ruth (the sporting news card, completely coveted then, haha) and a 78 Reggie Jackson. I'll never forget all the negotiations that went into that trade! Now I love them because it's the last year of the 70's sets before the hair got too whacked out...haha. I was looking through my 76 set last night and some of those hairdo's are unreal and frankly distracting. I think that is one reason I love the 50's and 60's so much...all the players looked nice and clean...no gawdy White Sox uni's...

Anyhow...thanks again for putting these together, love them...

Darren,

I want to create a time machine and transport you back to '72 so your creations could have been part of the set. They are freaking awesome.

Bob

P.S. I'd apologize to anyone you know that might miss your present day self.

Let's revise this thread. Are these cards available to the forum members? Was there a Rusty Staub In Action card?

At first glance, I thought that was Kelly Gruber and his card. Had to look it up as I it looked very familiar to me.

I am amazed we have not seen in action cards of Dick Allen, Boog Powell and Mike Cueller - Denny Mc Lain?

I love these cards that never were. How I wish Topps would make these with images that fit the time they were released.

For no reason whatsoever (well, besides personal enjoyment), I present for everyone's perusal a whole bag of Roberto Clemente In Action cards that never were...

1972robertoclemente1.jpg1972robertoclemente7.jpg1972robertoclemente10.jpg

1972robertoclemente3.jpg1972robertoclemente6.jpg1972robertoclemente4.jpg

1972robertoclemente11.jpg1972robertoclemente2.jpg1972robertoclemente12.jpg

1972robertoclemente8.jpg1972robertoclemente5.jpg1972robertoclemente9.jpg

It is so peculiar that for someone who was known as a king of the outfield, finding color photographs of Roberto wielding the leather is basically an impossible task.

And, what the heck, some slight re-workings of the Brooks Robinson...

...to get the grass showing.

By special request...

Not a Hall of Famer, but the guy who captured the 1972 MVP award, Dick Allen...

I just wish Topps would have put as much thought into the originals as Darren has put into making these great "cards that could have been" recreations. Great job Darren! I love the Clemente cards.

Okay, I'll add this guy, because (to paraphrase 'Levon') I like the name...

Some additional eye candy...

Since reimagining all of those Roberto Clemente cards, I decided to give Hammerin' Hank the same treatment. Plus, I always hated the 'Fat Elvis' picture Topps used on his 'In Action' card in 1972...

1972hankaaron02.jpg1972hankaaron01.jpg1972hankaaron03.jpg

1972hankaaron04.jpg1972hankaaron05.jpg1972hankaaron06.jpg


And here are two more versions of what coulda/woulda/shoulda been the greatest card of all time for us Mets/Mays fans...

These Mays cards are insanely good. I think we need a 1972 Topps extension set now!

Meant to do this 'Tom Terrific' work-up a while back, because I don't know what Topps was thinking when they put together their 'knee slapper' Tom Seaver 'In Action' card (although, oddly enough, because it's so different, I find it mesmerizing), but better late than never to celebrate one of my childhood heroes.

A celebration of the 'Seaver Snarl'...

He waited a long time to get his due, so let's show some love for Ted Simmons...
