Skip Guinn...again

I finally got around to scanning my first Skip Guinn card. The card from the previous post was obtained from a large lot of cards won on eBay; this one was sent off to Skip several years ago for him to sign. Sent off on 11/1/99; received 1126/99

I like these old 1970 cards. This is probably my favorite set, followed closely by the 1963, '65, and '76 sets. This one shows Skip in a classic posed shot, thinking seriously about what pitch to throw. Gotta love it! This also is the second card from the early '70s that I've seen with a cop or security card standing close by in the background. I can't think of too many recent cards like this.
