1971 Topps Hal King 88 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

This is a fine baseball card. The black borders on the 1971 flagship set were great and it made for the best “change of pace” set Topps ever released. The picture of the Braves starting catcher for the 1970 season, Hal King, is great. I mean, if you are just going to take a posed picture of a catcher, wouldn’t you rather see him in a crouch of his catching mitt than a boring old hatless headshot?
