Dave Parker 1974 Topps ROOKIE Card
A rookie baseball card and a batting cage card, all in one! This collector is drooling!!
Of all of the batting cage cards that I have acquired over the years, I believe that this one of Dave Parker is the first rookie card of the bunch.
Have a look:
This is certainly not the greatest batting cage card in my collection, but it is a nice one. It’s just too bad that the photographer couldn’t capture Parker in a little bit different pose…
As for the card, Topps really did a great job. The Black and Yellow of the Pittsburgh Pirates color scheme is displayed very well. And the reverse coloring of the lettering of Parker’s jersey adds a nice contrast to the team banner that Topps built.
Gotta Love The Rookie Cards!!!
