Card #32 - Gene Garber
Sometimes simple is better. Here's a nice clean shot of Gene Garber, the journeyman reliever, as he prepares to hurl a white ball to home plate. The sun is shining in over his left shoulder as the leg floats above the mound. Well done Topps!
This marks the first Atlanta Braves card of the set. The green was an interesting complimentary color on the hockey stick, but the grass in the background helps make it work.
Another treasure I found in the commons box at my local card shop.
It's pretty darn good. Perhaps a bit faded in the coloring, though.
This card really pops out on the binder page. I think I love it.
