I only needed one card to finish off Robert's birthday present, card #70 from 2023 Topps flagship and here it is.

Today is my friend Robert's 70th Birthday. He is not getting his birthday present until the end of the week at least because it is not complete and won't be until 2023 Topps Series 1 is out. I have a box coming next day air to try and get the card as soon as possible.
Thank you to everyone who helped out, in no particular order, The Diamond King, A Penny Sleeve, Cards As I see them, Baseball Card Breakdown, Baseball Cards Come to Life, Angels in Order, and the Cooperstown Advocate and his brother.1954-1961. Ted Williams leads off followed by Elmer Valo of the KCA's, then
Johnny Logan, Willie Mays makes his first appearance, 1959 features Alex Grammas, followed by Mays and Rigney and Dick Williams. The two Williams and the 58 Mays are reprints.
1962-1970 features a lot of players due to the multiplayer cards of the early '60's.
1980-1988 features Jeff Lahti, who worked with the Portland Pickles, a team that Robert used to be the public address announcer for.
1989-1997 Ozzie Smith at #40
1998-2006. Oregonian Ben Petrick pops in at #49. Sammy Sosa at #50 and in the oddest thing Danny Graves of the Reds at #51 and #52
2016-2022 Card #70 is not out yet, it will be Darrin Ruf. I hope I get him in the box I ordered from Dave and Adam's. Thanks again for all your help. I have already decided what I am doing for his 80th birthday in ten years if we are both here.
