Ron Santo 1969 Topps All-Star

Ron Santo 1969 Topps All-Star

While I don’t like the 1969 Topps All-Star cards as much as the similarly inspired ones from the 1970 set, I do enjoy the newspaper-esque design that both offered.

And it’s nice to see Santo celebrated by Topps for his All-Star selection – especially when there are so many Hall of Famers amongst his peers.

So, what did Santo do to earn an All-Star berth in 1969?  Let’s take a look at the numbers: 166 hits, .289 batting average, .384 on-base percentage, 18 doubles, 29 home runs, 123 RBI, 97 runs scored, and 1 stolen base.

All-Star worthy?  Indeed.
