Some More Topps Diamond Giveaway Cards

I got my final package from Topps Diamond Giveaway the other day, which included the following vintage cards:
This really nice 1968 Topps Mike Cuellar.  Cuellar is probably the second or third greatest pitcher in Orioles' History.  I really love this card and was glad when I unlocked it.
I love the 1962 Topps set.  It's just something about that wood border that does it.  Others must like it, too, because it has been done three times (1955 Bowman, 1962 Topps and 1987 Topps).  I'm not counting the Topps Heritage from last year or the 1987 Topps minis from this year.

I like this 1977 Topps Tito Fuentes because it definitely speaks "70's".  With the awesomely ugly uniforms, of course.  Man, some of those uniforms from the 70's were a sight.

This really jacked up 1975 Topps Mike Tyson also came in my order.  I was going to use it as trade bait for some Cardinals fans I know, but I would feel terrible sending someone a card in this condition.  I'm not sure what I will do with it now.  If anyone wants it, comment me and let me know.  I definitely won't ask for anything in return.
Finally, what is quite possibly the most awesome name on a baseball card that I have seen.  I really hope the guy pronounced his name like I think it should be pronounced.  Mark LemonJello!  So amazingly awesome!  Top it off with the awesome 70's Astros jersey and this card is a keeper!

That's extctly how "LemonJello" pronounced his name (or at least, that's how I remember the Philly broadcasters pronounced it).
