 “31 in 31” – The 1970’s – Card #29

Dave Concepcion – 1971 Topps – #14

Dave Concepcion played 19 seasons for the Cincinnati Reds and was a big part of one of baseball’s most dominant dynasties – ‘The Big Red Machine’.  Although Concepcion was never known as the leader of the team, his play earned the respect of his teammates, his fans, and the baseball world.  A 9-time All-star and 5-time Gold Glove winner at shortstop, Concepcion anchored an amazing Reds infield.  With a career batting average of .267 with 321 stolen bases and 993 runs scored, Dave Concepcion added the fuel to the fire that helped lead the Cincinnati Reds to 4 World Series match-ups in 7 years while winning 2 titles in 1975 and 1976.
