1975 Topps, Bill Lee

#128 Bill Lee

This is the second Bill Lee card that I got back in September. The first one was from the Senior Professional League and I was able to get that one in before I started the '95s.

I had also sent him an '81 Donruss card, but that card did not make it back. So, if anyone out there has his '81 Donruss card (or any of the cards from that set I need), let me know and we can work out a trade.

One of the things I notice about this card is the strange hill in the background. I have no idea what that is. The other thing that stands out is the belt-less pants. I didn't realize that they were used that early. I thought that they were an '80s thing. So I checked Dressed to the Nines and it appears that the Pirates were the first team to go without a belt in 1970.

I'm sorry this post is so short, but the KU/K-State game is about to start.

Wow, the Red Sox uniforms were pretty funky in 1974.

You're right. That hill is pretty funky.

Maybe that hill was the inspiration for the Astros funky center field hill. Good get on the SpaceMan!
