Card fact: This is the first card in the set that shows a player without a cap (excluding the MVP subset). Will it be the only one? I don't know. I'm too lazy to look. I'll just say I want to be surprised.
What I thought about this card then: Didn't see it. No doubt, I would have thought it was cool as it was a rare candid shot.
What I think about this card now: Nice flowing mane there.
Other stuff: My main knowledge of Herrmann as a young collector was repeatedly pulling his 1978 Topps card (then with the Astros). Herrmann was one of those double-printed cards from that year.
Herrmann spent the first seven years of his career with the White Sox. In fact, this is the last card of him with the White Sox. He'd be traded to the Yankees just before the start of the 1975 and then become a journeyman catcher after that.
(EDIT: Hermann died on Dec. 22, 2013).
