What's not to like about big bold letters in a psychedelic sort of way? I like how Topps used a funky and fun design for this set. I love the "In Action" cards that accompanied many of the great player cards in this set. It's a nice change of pace from the 1971 black border set. And for a Reds fan, this is our chance to grab the first Joe Morgan card in a Reds uniform. Sweet! I have nothing to complain about the 1972 Topps set (which is itself amazing since I always seem to complain about something no matter how small it may be). I will say this, the 1972 Reds should have won the World Series against the Oakland As! Stupid Gene Tenace! Oh well, guess the Big Red Machine had a few gears loose leading up to their momentous 1975-76 season.
