Tony Gwynn 1984 Topps

Tony Gwynn 1984 Topps

I was able to scoop up this second-year card of Tony Gwynn for a bargain price of just $0.50.

As a young collector, I had a nice stack of these as my philosophy was that second-year stuff was almost as good as having rookie-year stuff.  Boy, was I wrong!!

Still, the card looks great – and I am happy to have it for my Tony Gwynn collection.

In 1984, Gwynn settled into his role as full-time major leaguer.  At the same time, he also established himself as one of the sport’s great, young talents.  Gwynn led the NL in hits with 213 and was the batting champion.  He also became an All-star, won the Silver Slugger Award, and finished in third place foe the league’s MVP Award.

Not a bad sophomore effort, huh?
