Saturday Card of the Day

I was going through my binders to pick a card of the day... and I realized that this cards is the oldest Nolan Ryan card I own...
A 1975 Topps Nolan Ryan Highlights card celebrating the fact that Nolan struck out 300 batters for a third season in a row. It's kind of sad to me, being such a big Nolan fan, that this is the oldest card I have of his, and honestly the next oldest are the 1978 cards that are part of my (almost) complete set.
Slightly off-center on the back. I like the overall look of the card. I don't know why, but it still is very weird for me to see Nolan in an Angels uniform. To me, even the Mets uni seems more natural on him than the Angels. Weird...
