Posted By: <b>PaulPaulPaul</b><p>The Reds uniform was a heck of a lot better than those hockey uniforms he wore with the White Sox.

Posted By: <b>peter chao</b><p>Paul,<br /><br />Nice Seavers, Tom belongs in a Mets uniform. In a Mets uniform with a Topps Rookie trophy like the '68 Topps portrait of him.<br /><br />Peter C.

Posted By: <b>Todd Schultz</b><p>nice cards. What's the deal with him throwing lefty in that '68 pose? That would have been a much cooler card than the portrait, which Topps could have gone to in 1969 if they really liked it.

Posted By: <b>PaulPaulPaul</b><p>I think Seaver was doing his Lew Burdette imitation on that '68 card. Gibson did the same thing. Apparently, Topps wasn't fooled, so that went with different pictures for both of them.

Posted By: <b>Bob</b><p>Great cards Paul!! I can see why you want to be buried with them. Where is that going to be, um, exactly. <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Kevin Saucier</b><p>They are 1979 & 1980 Tom Seaver cards with the backgrounds physically (not digitally) removed. Each takes about an hour or so to do. It gives the appearance of a sticker on a blank card.<br /><br /><br /><br />Kevin

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Remember when you were a kid in school and they handed out book orders? Well you could also get posters too. This is a 1973 Scholastic Books Tom Seaver poster. Full size poster as you can see by the baseball bat beside it.<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/seaver.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Paul</b><p><br />Here's one more bizarre one. An uncatalogued 1985 TCMA card. Have any of you seen anything else from this set?<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1190495431.JPG">

Posted By: <b>sagard</b><p>My favorite Seaver is the '76 Record Breaker card. You can feel how badly he want to kick the batters...
