#377 - Checklist, Cards 265-396
What a card: We've reached the halfway point on the checklists. This is the third of the six checklist cards in the set.
My observation on the front: In the previous checklist post, I noted that the the outline of the yellow background was either green or blue. But on this checklist the outline is black.
More opinion from me: This checklist has a stain on it, next to card #272. I dislike stains on cards more than almost any other kind of card defect.
Something you might know: There are at least four deceased people on the front of this checklist (Quisenberry, Welch, Niekro and Sparky Anderson).
Something you might not know: Topps gave Rod Carew the "double zero" card number treatment 10 times (1975, 1976, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986).
My observation on the back: Look closely and you'll notice the next subset on the horizon. It's a pretty famous one.
The blog wants to speak now: The News category is updated. Billy Martin got in another fight.
