For some reason that '63 Harkness was one of the toughest cards -- aside from superstars and high numbers -- when I was completing that set. I think the card's overall boredom factor (OBF) is mitigated somewhat by the spectacularly bad airbrush job on the inset photo.

I guess Harkness came to the Mets from the Pterodactyl's? LOL

I hated the 1973 boyhood photos. The photo quality was awful, and I couldn't have cared less what Catfish Hunter looked like when he was 6.

His eyes look like two piss holes in a snowbank, LOL.
Funny thing is, I read a few of Mickey's biographies (auto and otherwise). In one, I remember a passage about him stating precisely that. I guess many of the Topps photo shoots were scheduled early. He said there were a few where he was on a bender with the gang and completely hungover and he hated the cards that captured that. He said he hated two in particular but refused to name them specifically and saw them while signing all the time at the shows of the late eighties and early nineties.

My guesses were always the 1962 and the 1965! Gotta love the Mick...
