The Giants only had a day to play in the playoffs from the end of the season, and won the west by 1 game. Not like they were going to cruise into the playoffs with a huge lead in the standings. The Dodgers , at least in the earlier '70's had jerseys marked set P for playoffs. I had a '74 at one time, and Lon confirmed it at the time.
Thanks for the help on the Giants...I remeber when the false scenario was conventional hobby wisdom. I forgot about the set P 1974s...that's another one....the reminder is appreciated.
