Gary Carter ‘Fab Five’ – Card #4 – 1984 Topps
Now that my Gary Carter collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.
Card #4 is from the 1984 Topps set.
As you all know, the 1984 Topps baseball card set is a favorite at ’30-YOC’. Offering us two images, 1 action and 1 cameo, the cards look fantastic and were a it with collectors.
The coloring that Topps chose for the cards works very well too – just look at how the Expos nameplate that runs vertically along the left border blends right with Carter’s striping on his Expos uniform.
And that cloud of dust at Cater’s feet is just icing on the cake. But I really don’t recommend eating dirt flavored icing – I’ve been there and it is not pretty… 🙂
