COMC Pickup - 1975 Topps Mini Brooks Robinson

I still can't believe that I didn't already have this card in my Brooks PC.  It is one of my favorite Brooks cards, well, the 1975 Topps is.  I love the short bill batting helmet.  I just had never run across any of the Minis from 1975 on a regular basis.  That is really surprising since I have been to a number of card shows.  I put the normal 1975 set together several years ago and the Brooks was easily found.  This one, however, I believe, is the first one I've ever seen.  I could be wrong.  Anyway, it is mine now and I can move on in my Brooks PC and put an effort toward his checklist and All Star cards.  I got this one off of COMC the Sunday after Thanksgiving for $2.75 with a BV of $12.00.  Not bad at all!

Great card! I don't care for some of the color combos in this set but when the colors are 'right' the card is really sweet. I'm lacking about 1/3 of the set. One of these days I'll go after it.

btw.... has Night Owl seen this?
