Part of the reason I bought the cards was because one of the cards on the outside of the pack was Jim Britton, card #699.
The card wasn't in great condition, as it looked a lot like many of the black bordered cards from the Topps 1971 set. It had chipping on the edges and the corners were rounded, but it didn't have any creases. I remembered that this card was a part of the 6th and last series of the set. I continue to work on the last series hoping that one day I complete it. The Britton card is now a part of my set. I do have all the other cards from the earlier series in the set, but I need maybe about 40 to 50 cards from the last series to finish the set.
Now I've got about 20 other cards from the Topps 1971 set sitting around. I started my blog about three weeks ago. I've been reading other baseball cards blogs where bloggers trade cards. I would like to get in on some of that action and offer these Topps 1971 cards for trade.
The cards are commons, but if you see any from your favorite team or a player you are collecting, let's make a deal. These cards aren't in mint condition, as it looks like they've been handled. I would say they look like the Britton card, a little rough on the edges and some rounding of the corners, but most of them don't have any ceases.
