Oscar Gamble 1975 Topps Baseball #213: The Gambling Biz Pt. 2

Oscar Gamble 1975 Topps #213In a recent Card of the Week post entitled ‘Business on Top, Party on Sides,’ I featured Oscar’s 1976 Topps Traded card. When I found the Oscar Gamble 1975 Topps #213, I had to write a follow-up. There are so many reasons why I love this card and they are as follows:

  • A meticulously separated and trimmed ‘stache is the key to success on the field and Oscar has one on lock.
  • With another bent and mangled cap bill, you know Oscar consistently doesn’t mess around.
  • Oscar doesn’t play with scissors, steer clear of the bear that lives under there.
  • Oscar’s such a daredevil, he only needs one glove.
  • That’s not the old and retired ‘C’ for Cleveland on his hat, but a personalized ‘O’ for Oscar. When you’re this good, the cap wears you.
  • What centering ratio is that? 90/10?

Question of the Day:
What are your thoughts on Topps re-introducing vintage designs? Love it, Hate it, Impartial?
