1972 TOPPS AL-NL ROOKIES #741 PSA 8
In the vast empire that is the 1972 Topps set, this stands as one of my favorites.
It comes from the realm of the high-numbers, where the photos are sharp and dimensional and clear.
As a Mets' collector, I particularly like the way that Milner is set in the middle of this multi-player rookie card like a fine cameo brooch.
But I also love the thematic consistency of the card, with its trio of East Coast, left-handed first basemen, wielding bats while dressed in full game livery.
I tell you, I could just wander though the 1972 set forever...
