1970 Kellogg's Baseball Card Backs - #55 - #57

Here is another post on the 1970 Kellogg's baseball card backs.  I wish the text had something more interesting.  This set is missing something that I like  - the card backs that mention the hometowns of the players.

#57 Bill Freehan - I remember him being known as a good defensive catcher.  The text lists stats to prove my memory correct.  

Not on the card - I liked the Tigers because that was the Pee-Wee league team I was on for three years.

#56 Luis Tiant - more stats about how good he was.  19 strikeouts in 10 innings - that's something I didn't know.

Not on the card - we all tried to imitate his wind-up.

#55 Ollie Brown - I don't know much about his but he threw a no-hitter in the minors.  He never pitched in 13 MLB seasons.

Not on the card - he played a long time without being a full-time player.  In only six seasons did he surpass 300 at-bats.

I don't see many off-center Kellogg's cards.  Did they do a better job at cutting than Topps did, or did they just discard the mis-cuts more frequently?
