Brads Random Red #35

1973 Topps G. Foster / P. Rose #202
N.L. Playoffs - Reds Go To The W.S.

1973 Topps J. Bench/ B.Tolan #208
World Series - Reds Win Game 6

1973 Topps Sparky Anderson #296

And to wrap up the 7 card Vintage Random Red run is this 3fer. So we have the 1972 National League Playoffs where Foster knocked in the winning run taking the Reds to the World Series. Then we have the Game 6 winning run taking the Reds and the A's to game 7 in the World Series. And finally the manager that did it all. Ol' Sparky. Gotta love it!

Mahalo and Aloha, Brad

'73 Topps has always been one of my favorite card designs. I love the heavy black rounded corner, clean layout, white background. Simple, modern... beautiful.

I totally agree with you. Accept that my Sparky Anderson has a heavy black rounded white corner due to its condition, lol.

The greatest set ever. Topps delivered a great design and card back in the Year of Our Blog Creator. This set was almost redone with 2004 Topps. Guess that is why it is my favorite 2000+ set by Topps so far. Do you have both versions of the Sparky card or just this one?
