1975 Topps Rowland Office - The Man, The Myth, The Legend


That's all I was going to write. That's all I need to. But maybe, just maybe, there's someone out there unfamiliar with Rowland. Doubtful, but possible.
First of all, there is a great blog out there called Rowland's Office. The latest incarnation can be found here.
Rowland played 899 career games, hitting 32 HR 242 RBI's with a .259 avg. He was 19 y/o when he broke into the big leagues in 1972.
But he's famous (or is that infamous?) for his baseball cards. My favourite is his '76 Topps. I'm not going to post it yet. That will come soon enough. You can look for it yourselves. It's worth it.
Rowland ended his career by palying 2 games for the Yankees. Not even that will stop our love for his cards.

That's one of the great off-center card photos of all-time. Love that card.
