Random Braves Team Set

What better way to come back from holiday than to post a random 60's oddball insert team set. These 5x7 posters are an insert from 1967 Topps packs. They are paper thin, were folded to fit into packs, tear really easily and are usually found in horrible condition which is why I like them. Here's a really nice scan of the Clemente card if you like good looking cards. This post isn't that random actually, I was originally inspired by this Leon Wagner pin up over at Indians Baseball Cards. Always. when David mentioned that there was a Joe Torre pin up floating around. Well, I got that pin up, along with Hank and Felipe. And here they are:

And since I'm a lousy fink who shows up his fellow bloggers here's the checklist for the set for your enlightenment and edification:

Man, Torre has a face only a mother could love!

Nice cards, though.
