1967 Topps #73 - Rusty Staub
Like this great Heritage box-topper buyback of Rusty Staub! Staub was really starting to reach his full potential as a player by 1967. He hit a career high .333 that year, and led the league with 44 doubles! Rusty was selected as an All-Star for the first time in his career this season as well, and was even named on a few MVP ballots.
I pretty much stole this one if you ask me, grabbing it off of COMC for less than $2 late last year, before Staub passed away a few weeks ago. Does it make the franken-set, though?
