1980 Topps – ‘1979 Highlights’ – Card #5

I was able to pick up this subset for a very low price.  It’s a 6-card set and it highlights some amazing accomplishments that occurred during the 1979 baseball season.

Headline – “Garry Templeton Becomes 1st With 100 Hits From Each Side Of Plate”

Text on the back – St. Louis, September 28, 1979 – When Cardinals’ Garry Templeton surprised Mets with bunt single tonight, it marked hit 100th hit from right side of the plate.  He thus becomes the first switch-hitter in big league history with 100 hits from each side.
