1970 Topps #549: St. Louis Cardinals Team

Managed by former Hall-of-Fame player, Red Schoendienst, the Cardinals' 78-86 record in 1970 put them in 4th place out of 6 teams in the N.L. East behind the Pirates, Cubs, and Mets.  The primary position players were: Joe Torre C, Dick Allen 1B, Julian Javier 2B, Dal Maxvill SS, Mike Shannon 3B, Lou Brock LF, Jose Cardenal CF, and Leron Lee RF.  The starting rotation consisted of: Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton, Mike Torrez, Jerry Reuss, and Nelson Briles.  The relievers were: Frank Linzy, Sal Campisi, Bill McCool, and Tom Hilgendorf.  The primary closer was: Chuck Taylor.

BV: $6.00
Cost: $0.67 (paid 11% BV)
Condition: FR 1.5 (worth 7.5% BV)
Completion: 653 of 720 (90% complete)
Comment: Heavy creasing, but with nice coloring/focus and some surface gloss left.  Nice edges overall with a little chipping/notching.  Corners are noticeably rounded with moderate layering.  The centering is 50/50 L-R and noticeably off from T-B with minor to moderate diamond cutting.
