A recent post about Jim Kiick on Johngy’s Beat, made me think about his (this) card and in turn gave me the inspiration to create these posts for the greatest Football Cards of the 1970s.
I know, years later collectors would complain that Topps had too many cards of players just sitting around on the bench, However, none of them ever looked like this. Draped around his shoulder was the Blue/Green/Teal Dolphin colors warm up jacket. Not many times has a warm up jacket figured so prominently on card to enhance the look of the card. But this one does. The sight angle/sight view on this card is also perfect as you can see the fans in the stand in the back ground.
