Airbrushed Fridays: 1974 Topps #163


Or as @toppscards calls it these days, "retouching".

Who is he? Ken Berry was an All-Star and Gold Glover, a center fielder who spent his better years with the Chicago White Sox. In recent years, he's even become a published children's author. Oh, Wikipedia, you and your factoids.


How did he get here? After spending the '60s in Chicago, Berry was involved in a five player deal that brought him to the Angels where he'd spend his next three seasons. Showing a fondness for massive multiplayer trades, Berry got himself tangled up in a nine player deal with the Brewers in October 1973.

Repeat offender? No

Other versions of this card: None

Airbrushed Score: 8

Comments: There's just nothing like that electron blue color that Topps used to airbr... er, ahem, retouch their cards back in the '70s.
