1975 Topps Ralph Garr 550 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

Can we take a moment and appreciate what a great baseball card this is? There are no bad baseball cards in the 1975 Topps set, but the cards with action shots are just the best. This shot in particular is better than the typical card because it captures Ralph Garr doing what he did best. Garr may not have been a great baseball player, but he was a “professional hitter”. You meet a lot of Braves fans from that era where Garr is their favorite.

I wonder is he had to take shit because of his helmet flying off his head all the time?
