I must take exception to PSA's description of the '73 Topps series as "not the most visually appealing series of the decade". Au contraire. In my opinion, the minimalist presentation, crisp photos and numerous vertical and horizontal action cards make a high grade '73 set one of the most striking (and underrated) series' of the decade - in my opinion, second in format only to the '71 Series. The namesake for this collection is the infamous Storrow Drive traffic sign in Boston (see picture for Card #245 - Yaz), found enroute to Fenway Park, which was mysteriously and consistently over-written to read "Reverse the Curse". Never more than a day went by, subsequent to a sign cleaning, before the graffiti appeared again. The sign was permanently removed following the 2004 World Series.
