I am not sure what you want to call the small player silhouette in the lower left hand corner of 1973 Topps. It looks like a shadow in front of a big orange sun to me. Please show me any MLB catcher who used that form with the glove open to the sky. I guess Simmons is showing that technique on the card, but I doubt he used it in a game. Simmons was a very underrated player for the Cardinals because the team was pretty bad during the 70s and Johnny Bench was winning World Series with the Reds.
I received many more 1970s cards from Brady. While I did not need all of them, a lot of them were condition upgrades to what I had. He must have a lot of mint 1970s cards in his collection because what he sent me were almost perfect.
