Jim Palmer 1975 Topps

Jim Palmer 1975 Topps

This beauty comes from that 2-toned set that some of us love and some of us not so much…

While I have stated several times during the last 18 months that I don’t particularly care for the 1975 Topps design, this card of Jim Palmer stands out as one that Topps did right.

While the picture leaves a lot to be desired, Topps did incorporate the Baltimore Orioles team colors into the equation.  Normally this set contains bright Purples, Pinks, Greens, and Yellows, but Topps went with Brown and Orange for this one and they compliment the team theme perfectly.

Now the picture on the other hand…

‘Hey Jim!!!’

Still.  A great addition to my Jim Palmer player collection!!
