Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Who knows what he was looking at. This pose was popular in the set, with at least 20 cards featuring it. It is a nice shot if you want to see Swoboda's nose hairs.
#9 (tie) Gary Sutherland
# 8 Lowell Palmer
Palmer was traded by the Phillies to the White Sox. With the change of scenery, he also decided to change his shades. I personally prefer his old pair.
# 7 (tie) Milt Wilcox
#7 (tie) Jim Grant
Check out the lamb chops on this guy. Now those are some serious sideburns.
#6 Richie Zisk Rookie Card
The Pirates failed to realize the potential of Zisk. Imagine the outfield they would have had with him in the line up. Zisk would later have an all star year for the White Sox.
# 5 Jim Fregosi
Fregosi earned 11 varsity letters in baseball, football, basketball, and track during his high school days in San Mateo. He still found the time to become an accomplished accordion player as well.
#4 Billy Cowan
All good angels have a halo over their head, and Billy is no exception.
#3 Pat Corrales In Action
Corrales is certainly in action alright. I'm just not exactly sure what is going on here.
Notice the skipper's left hand on the bat, he is shooting a bird to the photographer. He is giving us the bird too. You can get away with that in Detroit, but try that in New York and it will get you fired.
#1 Joe Morgan Traded
Morgan led the Astros in home runs with 13, and was one of the fastest men in baseball. Houston traded him to the Reds, helping Cincinnati form the Big Red Machine.
