30-Day Baseball Card Challenge #11: Card from the 1970s

The '70s is probably my second least favorite decade (post-War era) for baseball cards. Having been born in 1969, I wasn't around to enjoy the 50s or 60s, but I still prefer the cards from those two decades over the ones from the 70s. I do have to note, however, that I very much enjoy cards from the latter part of the 70s (1976-1979), as that was the time period where I began cutting my teeth on collecting.

So to pick a card from the 1970s, I've got to go with something from that time period and the card I've chosen is...

1979 Topps #30 Dave Winfield

There's so much to like about this card- so much that screams "'70s". The razor-sharp sideburns, the flapless helmet, that brown and gold uniform (second to only the Astros tequila sunrise for '70s greatness).

Thanks for taking time to read this Easter Sunday.

  1. Glad I'm not the only guy who loves those bright Astros jerseys from the mid 70's to the mid 80's.
