The Most Perfectest Card in the World - 1970 Topps Edition

This is the card that I have deemed to be the most perfect representative of its set. Behold:


#626 David William Ricketts


I probably should have looked through the rest of the set first, but am I really going to find a more perfect 1970 Topps card? I think not.

This semi-high series card was found in the legendary quarter box that has been eating all my money lately. If you have a nomination for a better 1970 perfecto, let me know in the comments. Maybe I'll do a poll if there's enough participation.

I thought Clark Kent worked for a newspaper.

If you are talking 1970 Topps, I have to place my vote for Lowell Palmer:

The Clemente card of 1970 is awesome too. I always loved the Ricketts card, I like seeing cards of catchers with their gear on.

That's pretty classic!

Those whole thing has a really awkward posed feel, from his sweat jacket on underneath his gear to his glasses. Wonder if he caught with those one?

pure bespectacled awesome! i must seek out that card. the only thing that could possibly have elevated it to perhaps become one of the most perfect cards of all time would be if it had been printed out of register.
