i'm continuing to scan and post my way through my steve garvey collection - at least that part of it that is in binders. i'm just about done with what i consider to be the oddball binder. that one consists of mostly oddly sized cards and a few other things. here are a few 5x7 sized items from topps.
steve garvey didn't get a card in the 1971 topps super set (or the 1970 set either, for that matter), but he was one of only two dodgers to be featured in the 1980 version of the set (davey lopes was the other). there are two varieties of garveys in that set - one is a gray back and the other a 'normal' back, but you can't really tell from the fronts, although the two in my collection have different color exposures.
the gray back is on the right, but i don't know if all of those versions had different exposures on the front or not. here are the backs.
topps took a break from these oversized cards in 1982 and 1983, and then in 1984 decided to make them again. this time, however, they just blew up the players' base card. here are the garveys from the 1984 and 1985 topps super sets
1986 was the last year, of garvey's career anyway, that topps put out the super set. here's garvey's card - again just a blow up of his base card
