look at steve rogers' card. i mean really look at it. study it.
he's not playing, he's posing. he's in his home whites, foretelling that the event would happen in montreal. he's staring into the distance, perhaps to the future as if his season were done. it is getting dark, again indicating the end of the season. he wears a forced smile, hinting at the pain that lies underneath.
and what about rick monday's card?
but wait, there's more. here's the back of steve rogers' card
the cartoons both show us how steve spends his leisure time! hinting that he would be enjoying the offseason. we also see that rogers had not relieved in a game since 1978, and that he had only 2 relief appearances in his entire career. note that rogers' card is number 725 in the set. the penultimate card in the set.
look who was at 726.
the last man standing.
well done topps. who's gonna be card 660 this year?
