Fun Cards Submission: 1978 Topps Tom Seaver (St. Patrick’s Day edition)

Green Seaver

It was 35 years ago today that the Reds first took the field in green uniforms to commemorate St. Patrick’s Day. While the fans loved it, not all the players were excited. Dave Concepcion allegedly mocked the uniform, saying, “I’m not wearing that. I’m Venezuelan, not Irish.” Phil Hecken has a good write-up of the tradition over at Uni Watch.

TWJ reader contributor Patrick sent the above “fun card” of Tom Seaver, and of course it had to be posted today. I made a small tweak (below), and would have gone further to change the team name to “Greens” if I knew the font and had it installed on my computer.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all! Hope you didn’t get pinched too hard today!
