Bob Gibson 2004 Upper Deck Legends ‘Timeless Teams’ – 1968 World Series

I really like when a player like Bob Gibson is included in modern releases of baseball cards.

Including a player of Gibson’s status and place among baseball’s greatest pitchers allows for collector’s of today’s era an opportunity to learn about and collect the greats.

This card comes from the 2004 Upper Deck Legends ‘Timeless Teams’ set.  The card pays tribute to one of the greatest single games pitched in the history of the World Series – Game 1 of the 1968 Fall Classic.

Check it out:

VINTAGE GIBSON

In that match-up, Gibson struck out 17 batters!!

Coming off of a stellar, Cy Young Award winning season in 1968, Gibson put his talents on display for the entire country and he did not disappoint.

As for the baseball card, it is very nice.  I just wish there was a drop of color to really draw your eye.  The Platinum effect of this card is nice, but it all blends together a bit too much for my liking…
