1987 Topps ‘Turn Back The Clock’ – Card #1 – Rickey Henderson

1987 Topps ‘Turn Back The Clock’ – Card #1 – Rickey Henderson

‘Five Years Ago’

The card celebrating the 1982 baseball season features Rickey Henderson’s 1982 Topps baseball card.  One of my favorite Henderson cards of All-time, the card perfectly captures Rickey taking a big lead off of first base as he torments the pitcher, catcher, first baseman, and manager of the opposing team.  And while I am not crazy about the color Pink (a very non-traditional baseball color) being used on any baseball card, I have to say that it compliments the Green very well on this issue from 1982.

Here is the card:

Some of the highlights mentioned on the back from the ’82 season include:

  1. Paul Molitor getting 5 hits in 1 World Series game
  2. John Wathan setting the major league record for steals by a catcher with 36
  3. Rollie Fingers becoming the first reliever to capture 300 saves
  4. Rickey Henderson setting the major league record for steals in a season with 130 swipes
