1973 Topps Flashback:  There's not a lot of new ground to cover with the subject of tonight's flashback.  I featured Wayne Twitchell's final Topps card, when he was a member of the Expos, in a 1979 Topps Flashback last year.  The 1973 season may have been Twitchell's best, as he went 13-9 with a 2.50 ERA and was the team's lone National League All-Star selection.
