1972 Topps #708: Tim Foli (In Action)

Tim Foli debuted for the Mets during the final month of the '70 season at the age of 19.  In 1971, Foli played for more than half of the season, switching positions among 2B, SS, and 3B.  Before the start of the '72 season, Foli was traded to the Montreal Expos along with Mike Jorgensen and Ken Singleton for Rusty Staub.  That year, Foli settled mostly into the SS position as an everyday player.  On the back of his card, Puzzle C features a 9-piece Tony Oliva puzzle (middle-left piece shown).

BV: $12.00
Cost: $3.00 (paid 25% BV)
Condition: VG-EX+ 4.5 (worth 35% BV)
Completion: 775 of 787 (98% complete)
Comment:  Left-right centering drops the grade of this card below EX 5.0 for me.  There are four fuzzy corners with nice edges.    The surface has nice gloss, color, and focus.
