Happy birthday Rusty Staub! (with a few “fun card” submissions)
Today is April 1st, but I don’t have a joke to tell you. It is also Rusty Staub‘s birthday, and thanks to TWJ contributor Patrick, I have a few “fun cards” to share.
In 1972 and 1973, Staub did not appear in any Topps products due to some sort of disagreement. No base cards, no Traded card to mark his move from Montreal to Queens, nothing. Thanks to the internet and customized baseball cards, fans have plenty of options to print out and slide into their 1972 and 1973 binders. And now, they have three more options.
I’m a bit biased, but I like the cards here a bit more than what is already out there. Thanks for the submission, Patrick, and happy birthday, Rusty Staub!
