1974 Topps
Brooks Robinson

Here's a poor old baseball card I picked up a few weeks ago for $2.63 including the cost of shipping. Come on, you've got more than that under the cushions of your couch.

I'm not sure what attracted me more to this card — the cartoonish Oriole on the cap, the crease through Robinson's head or or that pinhole before the word Baltimore.

Either way, I'd buy this card for under $3 all day long. You do realize Robinson was one of the game's greatest third basemen ever!

A very undrerrated Hall of Famer to say the least.

Beautiful card! I used to carry a 1974 Felix Millan in my back pocket when I was 6.These cards showed they were loved.

I wonder why no pinhole on the other side? nice card with character

I like mainly because the color scheme of the borders sort of matches the team colors of the uniform

The LCS no longer takes Visa , Mastercard , Discover , Chase , or even American Express. It now only takes the only card sponsored by MLB and accepted at all MLB parks. Its the new HANK AARON credit card. The 74 Aaron card looks like a credit card.

It's too bad that people don't name their kids like classic ball players nowadays, such as "Brooks Robinson", "Ty", or "Mickey"...
