1970 Topps #358 Pedro Borbon

Gotta wonder if Topps would put out the same Rookie Card for Pedro Borbon today.

The front of this card is perfectly fine.

Not sure the B-Side cartoon gets produced in 2012.

Borbon was a memorable player from my youth who won a couple of World Series Rings as a member of the Big Red Machine.  Farewell Pedro Borbon.

I saw this news on yahoo a few hours ago. I thought I had Borbon's 1969 card, but when you said this was his rookie card, I went back and checked what I was picturing in my head. It was this card.

This is a gem, both front and back. I've Pedro and some other guys with similarly crazy looks right here:
