2011 Topps Lineage: 1975 Mini's

Last week I shared some of my winnings from Community Gum's case break of 2011 Topps Lineage cards. Check out those previous post here and here. This time I'll finish off showing what I won by sharing what I think are the best inserts this year. These are parallel cards of the base set all fashioned after the vintage 1975 Topps mini set. They are just slightly smaller than a normal card, and as you can see are as colorful as the decade.

Above is a game-used uniform piece of Clayton Kershaw in the 1975 Topps mini design, and below are 4 Dodger mini cards I received. Unfortunately, Topps didn't use the same card back design- instead opting to use the boring written biography found in the Lineage base set. Still, the bright colors is a nice change of pace from what you typically see in todays cards. If anyone happens to have the 4 other Dodger cards that they are willing to trade or sell please let me know.
