Airbrushed Fridays: 1974 Topps Traded #330T

Daylight Savings is approaching! So is Opening Day!

Who is he? This man hardly needs an introduction. This Hall of Fame hurler was a 10-time All-Star and threw a no-hitter at the height of his powers. He spent most of his career with the Giants, which makes this card a strange little anomaly.

How did he get here? On the back of a killer pun, of course! Actually, the Giants sold Marichal to Boston near the end of his career, where he didn't pitch well despite a 5-1 W/L record.

Repeat offender? No

Other versions of this card: 1974 Topps #330T

Airbrushed Score: 5

Comments: Not much of Marichal's cap is visible, but they seem to have toyed with the small part that is. The Red Sox and Giants both have dark primary colors so things probably could have been left alone, but nope, this is Topps in the '70s.
