1973 Kellogg's Cards Are Not All Bad

The 1973 Kellogg's baseball card set gets a lot of negative comments because it isn't 3-D and the red color.  There are a few benefits to not being 3-D.  The obvious ones are the 1973s not curling or cracking.  Yeah!

What I like about the 1973s are the normal baseball card pictures.  One can try to figure out what stadiums are shown or, in a rarity for Kellogg's, who else is shown in the picture.  Here are a few examples of people in the background.

I like that Bob Gibson's card shows people in the stands.  I don't know what else is going on behind him.

One of Nolan Ryan's teammates or coaches is watching him pose.  They are probably laughing because that is one of the worst throwing poses ever.  

Like Ryan, Rod Carew had a jealous teammate who wanted to find his way to get on the card.  

Ron Santo has someone lingering too.  I like the batting glove.
