The law

We all know this card.

We all love this card.

It's probably the most blog-friendly baseball card I can remember seeing. I'm sure most of the baseball card bloggers out there have featured this card at some point. It's almost like a law.

This card reminds me so much of an OK Corral battle in the Old West. All that's missing is a  tumbleweed rolling past Johnny Bench's feet. Any minute now, Bench will yell "Draw!", and baaad things will happen.

A question to my readers:

Is this the most iconic card of the 1970's?

To me, it's a toss-up between this card, the '71 Thurman Munson, or the '77 Mark Fidrych. It's really tough for me to decide between those three.

Even if it's not your most iconic card of the 1970's, you've got to love it.

Seriously, how could you not?

Since you made me look closely at this card -- Johnny's pants are making a very strange shape. :)
