1982 Topps Rickey Henderson
This card could be an award winner. The 1982 is not a favorite of mine, but this card does stand out to me more than the other cards from this set.
It’s amazing what a great photo can do… Here we see Rickey getting ready to blast off. Or maybe he’s just toying with the pitcher, catcher, and second baseman he’s playing against. Either way, this photo captures Rickey doing what he did better than anyone else in the game – disrupting his opposition!!
And while Pink and Green may not be the best color pairing ever used on a baseball card, for this one it works very well. The Green is a perfect compliment to Rickey’s Oakland A’s uniform. And the Pink goes well with the Green. While Pink may not be your standard accent color on a card, for this specific issue Topps made a great choice!!
Just 1 more Rickey Henderson card to go and my player collection will be complete!!!
