Johnny Bench 2006 Topps ‘Rookie Of The Week’

Johnny Bench 2006 Topps ‘Rookie Of The Week’

A very sweet looking baseball card that borrows the design from the 1968 Topps base set, this card honors Johnny Bench and his efforts before making it to the big leagues and earning his spot as the Cincinnati Reds’ starting catcher.

In 908 at-bats during his stay in the minor leagues, Bench collected 246 hits en route to a batting average of .270.  And he put on quite a display of power by slugging 46 double and 47 home runs while driving in 171 runs.

And amazingly, he did most of this before his 20th birthday – truly remarkable!!!
