#205 - 1967 Most Valuable Players
Card fact: Topps' 1967 set design is another one of those simple designs from the '60s. However, unlike some of the others, I like this design a lot. It does a great job of putting the focus on the photo, and I like the large team names at the bottom that seem to anchor the card. It has some things in common with the 1988 set, which I also like.
What I thought about this card then: This was one of my early pulls in 1975. I'm not sure if it was in those very first three packs that I bought. To this day, when I think of Carl Yastrzemski or Orlando Cepeda on a baseball card, the 1967 cards are what spring to mind.
What I think about this card now: I can't figure out what Cepeda is doing.
Other stuff: By coincidence, I am conducting a poll on the other blog to determine the best 1970s Carl Yastrzemski card. Hop on over there if you haven't already.
