1969 Topps Luis Aparicio

Horizontal Variations

There is really no legit reason for making this card. I just really hated the no-hat 1969 Topps Luis Aparicio card that was the exact same crappy no-hat picture from his 1968 card. The 1969 set had such a clean, classic look. It is one of my favorite designs. I think if Topps incorporated some horizontal action cards it would have been even better. 

Even if you are the most old-school traditionalist card collector, I have to ask: Which card would you rather find in that stack of 1969's at a dealers table

This:or this?


  1. They were having trouble getting pictures of the player from less than five years before.

  2. So they were busy running around the expansion teams' training camps. They could have at least used a photo from Aparicio's first stint with the White Sox.
