1983 Topps Super Veteran – Tony Perez
2,732 hits. 379 home runs. 1,652 RBI. 1,272 runs scored. 7-time All-star. Member of ‘The Big Red Machine’. 2-time World Series Champion. I would say without question that Tony Perez is a ‘Super Veteran’.
Perez enjoyed a long, 23-year career in the big leagues. A solid player that put up impressive numbers annually, Perez was a strong contributor and was one of the reasons that his teams played in 5 World Series match-ups. Perez is a winner – and the teams he played for benefited from his talents. From 1970-76, Tony’s team played for the World Series title 4 times. And although they only captured 2 titles in those 4 chances, Tony Perez and ‘The Big Red Machine’ are still talked about today as one of the greatest dynasties in baseball history.
