Yesterday I presented the one card from the Topps Diamond Giveaway that I didn't much care about receiving - other than it being vintage. And, as it turned out, the card didn't look so hot upon arrival.

For now, here's what I received from the years 1975 and prior - along with a single 1982 (the newest card from my haul). Here's that one:
