Card Tribute: Juan Marichal

The Hall of Famer had a long and successful career with the Giants. The Dominican Dandy was overshadowed by Sandy Koufax and Bob Gibson, but he was one of the greats. This card tribute covers Juan's entire career (except for a traded card in 1974). Marichal was traded from the Giants after the 1973 season. His 1974 Topps card was a Giants' card and he got a traded card at the end of the year. Topps didn't print a card of Marichal in 1975 (he finished up with the hated Dodgers).

The 1973 set is so weird sometimes. It has such promise, but some of the cards just don't look right. If that card was centered a little better it would be awesome. I'm going with the 1974 card because of the wide up action shot.
