Ozzie Smith 1987 Topps

Ozzie Smith 1987 Topps

When Ozzie Smith shouts, ‘I’ve Gor It’ you get out of the way!!!

And it was simply a showing of respect for the greatest middle infielder of all-time.  Heck, Ozzie Smith made playing defense cool.  As kids, we all took turns impersonating our favorite players while at bat.  But when handling grounders, we ALL drifted to Ozzie.  He was the man, and is a big reason that you didn’t change the channel were the Cardinals were on TV.

This 1987 issue from the Topps bas set is a nice one.  And the reminder it offers of the 1962 set is evident each time I come across one.  Something tells me that Ozzie would have been just as big of a star during that era as he was during the 1980’s! 

A great addition to my Ozzie Smith collection!!!
