1982 Topps Rickey Henderson

1982 Topps Rickey Henderson

This card could be an award winner.  The 1982 is not a favorite of mine, but this card does stand out to me more than the other cards from this set.

It’s amazing what a great photo can do…  Here we see Rickey getting ready to blast off.  Or maybe he’s just toying with the pitcher, catcher, and second baseman he’s playing against.  Either way, this photo captures Rickey doing what he did better than anyone else in the game – disrupting his opposition!!

And while Pink and Green may not be the best color pairing ever used on a baseball card, for this one it works very well.  The Green is a perfect compliment to Rickey’s Oakland A’s uniform.  And the Pink goes well with the Green.  While Pink may not be your standard accent color on a card, for this specific issue Topps made a great choice!!

  1. Congratualtions on getting so close! I wish I could help you out, but that’s one of his few early cards that I don’t actually have duplicates of.

  2. If I’m to understand you correctly, you do NOT have this card yet, and are looking for one? If so, I have this exact card and it’s in mint condition. How much are you looking to spend to acquire this card?
