1973 O-Pee-Chee Pat Corrales #542

I've heard about this card is passing, though perhaps it was a comment from a Night Owl Cards blog post that gave me a new perspective on the card - the comment links to a YouTube upload of a Ferguson Jenkins documentary where the actual play at the plate happens, with Jenkins being the incoming baserunner who runs over Corrales.

A copy of the card may not make or break a 21st century card collection, but for about a dollar, it's a nice vintage card 'curiosity' to put away - I actually picked up the OPC version because I've always perceived the thinner card stock to be a little cleaner than the thicker, dingier Topps version.

That is an awesome card! I totally agree with you on the O-Pee-Chee of that era, too -- I really like the thinner, whiter card stock.
