When think of the 70’s, I think of facial hair. And there’s a bunch of it in the 1975 Topps Set.
But there are players like Darrell Porter who are clean shaven in the Topps set but have a lot more hair on their SSPC card – like Darrell’s horseshoe mustache. If Topps Porter ran into SSPC Porter in a bar, I don’t think he’d want to start any trouble with himself.
Like Porter and Munson, Jim Colburn was clean shaven on his 1975 card but sporting a twirly mustache on the SSPC.
Finding the SSPC set was like unearthing photographs of people you’ve known all your life and discovering their wild and crazy side.
