1973 Ron Santo

In 1973 both Topps football and baseball cards had very simple designs. I happen to like both of these sets. I'm not sure if it is because of the simplicity of design or in spite of it. Both sets also had the occasional horizontal action shot which is also a favorite of mine. Unfortunately the Santo card for 1973 was a plain head and shoulders shot. The same head and shoulders shot that would be used on the 1974 traded card. Topps simply airbrushed the hat red and Voila! He's now on the White Sox.
