Topps Million Card Giveaway - the Card Buzz collection #8

1973 Topps Bill North #234

From the Million Card Giveway, I think I traded a 1972 Topps Ivan Murrell for this card - while the Murrell was a 'high number' card, North's 1973 Topps card was his rookie card, so it made it easier for me to accept the offer.

As for the player, it looks like North was a 1970's version of Juan Pierre - a fast top of the lineup type hitter with no ability to hit for any power. To North's credit, he did have the ability to collect his fair share of walks during his 11 year career.
