1973 Topps trip cards

Almost getting to the end of the chronologically run of the "trip cards".  Now, normally tomorrow on Halloween, I would post from my Holiday binders which are at home in Florida, so I can't, so we get to look at more 70's cards tomorrow too. Today we look at the 73's I found in the boxes.

A lot of big names. Of course many will eventually hit the upgrade lists. I'm okay with that.

I was able to scratch off a few numbers this go around.

More big names.

A couple of nice shadow shots here.

The numbers are getting higher. :)

I think I need to add the Krauss's to my Names binder.

and the numbers keep rising.

Check out that Standard Oil sign on Rivers card. Cool.

Okay so I added 45 acrds to the 73 set build, including some high numbers and big names.
I can live with that.


  1. Probably my all-time favorite set.

  2. Ah, yes, the set I'm currently collecting. Can't beat the cartoons.

  3. I want to see a custom of Fregosi where the cartoon says "The Mets were dumb enough to trade Nolan a Ryan for this guy!" Or maybe something similar but with a swear word. The cartoon could be a guy in a cap facepalming.....

  4. LOVE the photography in this set. The Thurman Munson is beautiful - too bad they spelled his name wrong on the back.

    1. I knew something didn't look right, but I didn't catch that.

  5. Lot's of awesome Athletics in that lot.
