    1973 Topps cards look like they were made to be autographed. They look absolutely great signed.

    That 1976 Topps Bench is a great picture too. Love all the dust around him.

    Poll turned out pretty much as I expected, with 75 and 71 being the clear favorites, even given a small number of voters. Major surprise is that 74 ended up in third place. TBH, it's my least favorite set, although there are a lot of great pics in it. This is one of the defining cards of that set for me:

    The horizontal image (the last base Topps set to use horizontal cards except for team cards until the 90s, I think I heard) with the out-of-focus, "bubbly" looking faces in the background. The flat pennants in the corners don't do a lot for me, but it's not ugly by any means.

    Not surprised 79 is the least favorite. Not a bad design but out of 10 it would be #10 for me as well.

    Thanks for playing.
