Carlton Fisk 1986 Topps All-Star
As a kid collecting baseball cards in the mid-to-late 1980′s, I really enjoyed collecting the All-Star cards issued by Topps as part of their base sets. Afterall, the cards celebrated the best players in the sport…

As for Fisk, his 1986 baseball season was a bit on the lackluster side… he hit just .221 in 125 games, but did help the team with his 63 RBI and 42 runs scored.
