The Braves logo on these '52 Topps cards is one of my favorite features of this set.  I like it far more that the Braves logos of my lifetime, the lower case "a," the tomahawk, the upper case "A" with the cursive style swoop on the leg, or the mohawked profile views of the Brave.  I'm probably missing some, as there are no shortage of Braves logos, but my point is that they never should have messed with this one.  It's not exactly Chief Wahoo.
