the dick williams card is here because steve garvey is lurking in the background, signing autographs for his legion of fans. two cards over is another card in which garvey is a background lurker. it comes from a 1985 set produced by topps that features nothing but pete rose. there are 120 cards in the set, which seems excessive, but i was happy to find card number 81 in the set that shows the scene at first base following hit number 4192. i think that it's pretty cool that garvey was on the field for both babe ruth's career home run record being broken as well as the passing of ty cobb's career hit record (although some statistic scrubbing in the following years would show that rose actually passed cobb in an earlier game).
the rubdown 'card' is the same as the 1984 version with only the copyright date changing, but it gives bill russell another reason to be in the garvey collection.
