Arizona-based card blogger MattR started Project Baseball 1976 in March 2009 with the goal to collect, display, and describe each card from the eponymous Topps set. It started with #1, Hank Aaron's lifetime RBI record breaker and continues daily like a heady, unstoppable wave of nostalgia. A hearty salute to the research and detail that goes into each entry; my favorite's #103, Biff Pocoroba, for 2 reasons.
- Biff is the man's given name, surely a gateway to pro sports or casino management.
- His hair in 1976's picture looks just like mine did, perpetually flaring out like a sideways wind tunnel. BLAME THE 70s.
- BONUS: Knowing that MattR's dad also went by "Biff" as a kid.
I had "Biff hair" in the late 70s too!
I liked getting both Biff's card and Johnny Wockenfuss in the same pack that year!
