Now that my Rickey Henderson player collection is complete I wanted to take the time to show off my favorite 5 cards from this set.
Card #2 – 1983 Topps
Now this card right here is a classic!!
The picture used on this 1983 Topps card shows Rickey’s swing as he launches a baseball to the outfield. Is it a home run?? I cannot say for sure that it is, but based on the look in Rickey’s eyes he has hit the ball a pretty good distance.
Just like with the 1982 set, Topps used the color Pink to accompany this card of an Oakland A’s player. And again, it worked!! While Pink is not a traditional color used on a baseball card, it adds just the right amount of bold accent color to the card’s look while not effecting or taking anything away from the overall design.
