Year: 1978

Set: SSPC 270 (Rate)

Card: #217 George Brett

“ I love the 1976 SSPC set, but I don't think I knew there was a 1978 set. Very cool to see a card I've never seen before, of a modern HOFer. ” -switzr1

“ Google "George Brett dugout". Definitely a hard charger. One of the best ever. The "pine tar incident" and "Nettles brawl" are another couple great videos showing his temper. ” -CluelessJoe

“ What does SSPC stand for? ” -carthage44

“ Sweet collar! This looks less like the White Sox uniforms despised by Chris Sale, and more like the photographer stopped Mr. Brett on his way out of the stadium and asked him to pull a Royals jersey over his collared shirt and hold a bat for a quick photo. He didn't even try to properly expose the jersey. ” -dilemma19

“ Scary looking card. At first glance I didn't think it was even baseball. George is looking more like a cricket player in this photo. Hehe. ” -captkirk42

“ Great player and iconic competitor, but lousy person with fans. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Weird. I never heard of SSPC, so I assume this was not a major released set. The picture is odd because of the collared shirt under the uniform. Not sure how this picture came to be, but I like the oddness of it. ” -muskie027

SSPC stands for Sports Stars Publishing Company.  These cards were issued in booklets for a handful of teams.

Great chase for both fans of the Legendary Brett and of odd ball baseball cards.For the rest of us one look at the card design and picture and its not hard to figure out why these just plain suck.
