#273 Checklist 4th Series

Checklist 4 by you.
Yep, two checklists in three days. This is just the order that I received these cards, I assure you! The next twenty-eight (wow!) cards in my queue are all player or team cards. This one features Bert Campaneris, 200-game-winner Milt Pappas, Rusty Staub, Mickey Lolich, Mike Cuellar, and Hall of Famers Hoyt Wilhelm, Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Whitey Ford, and Mickey Mantle. That's a star-studded checklist, though the back of the card blows away the player selection on the front. As far as hero numbers, Koufax gets #300 and the Mick comes in at #350. The other fun note is that card #325 (Donn Clendenon) has only a last name listed; there's not even room for his first initial!

Unlike the 3rd Series Checklist, this one is unblemished by pencil marks. You can decide which style you prefer. I only have nine of the eighty-eight cards on this checklist, or roughly 9%. I'm really reaching for something else to say here...I do approve of the use of primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) on the front of the card. There's some color theory for you, straight from an art teacher's son.
