1981 Topps All-Star Paul Molitor
Paul Molitor was a 7-time All-star. His first time making the squad was in 1980, and this 1981 Topps card pays tribute to that selection.
So, how did he make that 1980 team? What did he do to earn a roster spot, you ask? Well, I’ll tell ya!!
Paul Molitor appeared in just 111 games during the 1980 baseball season. But in that time, he was sensational!! Hitting .304, Molitor collected 137 hits in 450 at-bats. He also stole 34 bases en route to scoring 81 runs. In 512 total plate appearance, Molitor struck out 48 times and walked 48 times which aided in his .372 on-base percentage.
Congratulations on your first All-star selection Mr. Molitor!!
