Ken Griffey Sr. ‘Fab Five’ – Card #5 – 1975 Topps

Ken Griffey Sr. ‘Fab Five’ – Card #5 – 1975 Topps

Now that my Ken Griffey Sr. player collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.

Card #5 – 1975 Topps

 

If you had asked me four years ago about the 1975 Topps baseball card design, I would have chuckled and told you that it was one of the worst I had ever seen.  Fast forward to today, and I have a lot of appreciation for the set and its place in baseball card history.

As for Griffey, the 1975 season was his breakout season.  Sure, he had suited up for the Reds in 1973 and 1974, but he became a full-time player in 1975.  His numbers were solid – .305 batting average with 141 hits, 95 runs scored, and 16 stolen bases.

  1. You should think about building the 75 Topps complete set.
