Love those expos. I also found some old expos cloth stickers that have to be at least 40 yrs old and they stuck perfect.

Poor word choice on my part. By "selected," I meant "created." I doubt they actually picked off-center photos as well.

By the way, I have one of those Reggie Jackson 1969 cards. Actually got it in 1969, along with the Mantle card with the white lettering.
