Card Shop Pickup - 1976 Topps Mike Cuellar

I picked up this 1976 Topps Mike Cuellar last week at the card shop when I found it in the bargain bin.  I have been quietly putting together a Cuellar PC recently.  He is one of the best pitchers in Oriole history not named Palmer or Mussina.

I figured since I haven't had much mail coming in and am waiting on a ball I got in an auction, I would show this card off.  The 1976 set was a pretty decent one.  It featured Dennis Eckersley's RC, some pretty awesome hair and some even more awesome uniforms.  The Orioles of the era were very good, but were on the tail end of their AL dominance.
