1976 Topps Dave Winfield

1976 Topps Dave Winfield

This is ‘Big Dave’s’ 3rd year card.  I paid just $4 for it and am really surprised as to how easily I found a great looking card in such good condition that is 33+ years old.  Oh, and the $4 included shipping too. 

So now I am just 2 cards away from completing my Dave Winfield collection.  It’s nice to see how this set has come together and I am looking forward to finishing this set in the coming weeks(hopefully).

I like the ’76 design.  The card’s color scheme goes well with the San Diego Padres uniform.  And of course ‘Big Dave’ looks enormous, with an assist to the photographer!

Did You Know??

In 1960, Bill Veeck of the Chicago White Sox became the first owner to put players’ names on the back of their uniforms?
