#23 Frank Robinson

I have always tried to sneak in HOF players into my collection whenever possible.  Could not pass up an opportunity to get in one of the all-time greats in his only year in A Dodger uniform.

How did he become a Dodger? Traded by the Orioles with Pete Richert to the Dodgers for Doyle Alexander, Bob O'Brien, Sergio Robles and Royle Stillman.  Whatever.

Back to the card...  I guess Topps wanted us to know that he was surely traded with this huge TRADED stamp across the front of it.  Frank appears to have had his picture taken at some point in Florida during Spring Training. 

I never knew that the Dodgers wore a stripe on the sleeves until I started paying attention to this card.  There will be more examples soon as we will be visiting 1972 Topps again later in the countdown.  For the record, I like the stripe. 

1972...well I do not like the design of the card too much, but it is rare, and it is Frank Robinson.  547 of these have been submitted to PSA, 38 PSA 9's, and only 3 PSA 10's!  I assume Dimitri Young owns at least one of the 10's.
