1970 Checklist Showdown: Booklets Vs. Scratchoffs Vs. Posters

My 1970 Ron Santo poster came!

And now that I've got it, its time for the final checklist showdown. Today, all three 1970 insert sets compete against one another. Its the Booklets vs. Scratchoffs vs. Posters.

Remember, each insert set had 24 players, one from each team. The contest is to see which checklist had the most team stars. The selection of the stars is not done scientifically. Instead, it is done by the fuzzy, 41 year old memories of yours truly. Feel free to agree or disagree with my selections. The players in bold are my selection as the team's top star of the three.

  1. For me Santo trumps all and the posters win. At the risk of sounding old, remember when record albums (just saying that makes me old) sometimes included free posters? I still have some of them.
