Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #127T

Airbrushed Fridays gets a new format to keep things fresh.

Who is he? Larvell Blanks was a utility infielder who spent 9 big league seasons with three different teams, including a repeat tour in Atlanta.

How did he get here? Blanks was traded twice in the same day, first as part of a five-player deal between the Indians and Braves that in part netted Atlanta someone named Ozzie Osborn. The White Sox then flipped him to Cleveland for Jack Brohamer.

Repeat offender? No

Other versions of this card or photo: 1978 Topps #61

Airbrushed Score: 9

Comments: Well, this has the beginnings of a magic hat. Is that a baseball lurking beneath and slightly to the left of the 'C'?
