“ Air Brush! ” -rmpaq5

“ Awesome ” -Splinter_9

“ No Neck Walt Williams! ” -goldeneye

“ Indians cap with White Sox jersey? Close enough. Nobody will notice! ” -switzr1

“ im kind of falling in love with this design.... To bad we have to wait two more years for the heritage.... ” -parsley24

“ The front is a little plain, but I do like the player silhouette in the corner. I really like the back; nice big card number, lots of info, and you can never really go wrong with a cartoon. ” -AirPete

“ Scan by sandyrusty ” -Kirbythedodger

“ Interesting airbrush job. They left the pinstriped White Sox uniform alone, and only painted a 'C' on the cap. This was the era when the White Sox had red caps, so I guess they figured their shade of red was close enough to Cleveland's. ” -DocOso

“ Nice "vintage"card , love the write ups on the back from this era. ” -uncaian

“ Neo-Vintage Topps. OK I guess 1970s and maybe even 1980s are now considered vintage. It is odd since the '70s was my decade of collecting Made some of my biggest strides, learned the most ropes of the hobby.Excellent card. ” -captkirk42

“ Just your everyday pepper-pot, no-neck player. Plus, I'm pretty sure he's wearing a White Sox uniform with an airbrushed Indians cap. ” -Gapporin

“ Airbrushed hat. Sox uniform. No-Neck Williams! ” -cjjt

“ This may be the closest thing to a 1970s centered OPC card that exists. ” -UKboogie

“ I like seeing backgrounds in card photos, but this one doesn't even look like a baseball field. Must be spring training. Are those telephone poles in the background? I definitely thought that was a Reds hat at first. ” -chvlDm

“ Old = Awesome. The rule still applies. ” -muskie027

In my original comment I called it a Topps card it is an OPC card. OOPS! I find it interesting that most of the comments mention the airbrushing of the cap to Indians but keeping the White Sox pinstripes and team logo. I guess they thought the little silhouette guy would cover the team logo enough.
