Card fact: This is just the eighth card in the set displaying the red-orange color combo (the "Burger King" combo). It is the least featured color combination so far.
What I thought about this card then: Did not see it.
What I think about this card now: It's in need of some upgrading. It's a bit worn on the edges and miscut.
Other stuff: Jack Billingham was at the height of his career in 1975, having just won 19 games in back-to-back seasons. He remained a solid starting pitcher for the Reds when they won back-to-back World Series titles in 1975-76. After being traded to the Tigers, he enjoyed another good season for Detroit in 1978 before eventually reaching the end of his career in 1980.
Billingham began his career as a reliever with the Dodgers. But he was taken by the Expos in the expansion draft, then sent to the Astros. Billingham went to the Reds in the deal that also brought Joe Morgan and Cesar Geronimo to Cincinnati -- a major steal for the Reds.
