1971 Topps #659: Byron Browne OF, Philadelphia Phillies

Byron Browne played for 4 different teams in the 8 years he spent in the majors between 1965-1972.  Browne was acquired by the Phillies after the 1969 season from St. Louis along with Tim McCarver, Joe Hoerner, Willie Montanez, and Jim Browning in exchange for Cookie Rojas, Jerry Johnson, and Dick Allen.  Browne continued playing in the minors through the 1975 season.

BV: $12.00
Cost: $3.00 (paid 25% BV)
Condition: VG-EX 4.0 (worth 30% BV)
Completion: 744 of 752 (98% complete)
Comment:  The stains shown on the front of the player are actually from the scanner, not the card.  My posts for the '71T and '72T sets are now caught up, with the '71T set in the lead for the first time.  Since I've been collecting the '72T longer, this reaffirms my belief that it is actually more difficult to complete than the '71T set.  I still have about 23 new '70T cards left to post at this point.
