2023 Card-vent Calendar: December 7

1975 Topps #528 Eddie Leon AUTO
A couple of things about this card:

1. I'm a sucker for an actual autograph on a card containing a facsimile autograph.  It's fun to see how well the two signatures match up.  Eddie did a pretty nice job here.  A little less flourish on the real autograph, but understandable given the writing utensil.

2. Lots of colors represented on this card, all of them fighting for attention.  We've got White (Sox, duh), Red ('70s helmet and uni), Green/Purple (borders), Hot Pink (team name) and Blue (Sharpie).  Somehow, it all works.  I think?

  1. Leon did a pretty good job of replicating that facsimile. I feel like most of the time they look way different.
