SSPC Randy Jones Card (1976)

Now despite this card having the year 1975 on the back, it was indeed produced AFTER the 1975 season and for the 1976 season. SSPC (Sports Stars Publishing Company) was a one off set that was produced by a card dealer. He was apparently sick of the way Topps was producing cards, calling them to “flashy” and opted to create a nice simple & basic card set. Soon after he started selling them Topps forced him to stop creating cards with active Major Leaguers. He then switched the name to TCMA and began selling cards of Minor Leaguers & retired ball players.

*Bonus tip: Former ESPN host & current political annoyance Keith Olbermann edited the backs of every card in the set
