Johnny Bench 2010 Topps ‘Cards Your Mom Threw Out’ – 1970 Topps
Cards of catchers are fantastic because they often offer you an image that you would not see another position player captured in.
And that is exactly what you get with this replica of Johnny Bench’s 1970 Topps baseball card.
See for yourself:
Pretty nice, huh?
Topps has really done a perfect job of keeping this collector interested in modern-era issues.

‘My First Time’ – Josh Beckett – September 4, 2001
The setting – Pro Player Stadium, Miami, FL
From Beckett – “I had 15 or so people come in from Texas – my dad, mom, grandparents, and a few friends. Preston Wilson hit a three-run homer and Kevin Millar hit a Grand Slam in that game, so I was set for run support. I had as many hits as I gave up, because I doubled later against Jon Leiber. Yeah, that’s a pretty good way to get yourself going.”
Boxscore – Marlins 8, Cubs 1. Beckett threw six innings while allowing just 1 hit and collecting his first major league victory. He also went 1-for-2 at the plate and scored one run.

Tony Perez 1985 Topps
Ah, 1985 Topps – the first set that I ever collected!!
And I have to say that I love the combination of Red & Grey that Topps used in the banner and border of the card. As you can see, it perfectly compliments Perez’s Reds uniform.
Oh, and at 43 years of age back in 1985, it really looks like Perez could still swing the old lumber pretty well!! A true baseball great!!!
