Jim Palmer ‘Fab Five’ – Card #4 – 1974 Topps

Jim Palmer ‘Fab Five’ – Card #4 – 1974 Topps

Now that my Jim Palmer collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.

Card #4 – 1974 Topps

You all know that I am a sucker for the full-body action photo when it comes to baseball cards.  So of course it is not odd that one of my favorite cards of Jim Palmer features a photo that captures that kind of imagery.

This one is very sweet.  As you can see below, the background is the solid Green outfield wall – and it makes Palmer’s image jump right off of the card.  And I also like the blurred image of the batter’s backside that goes along the right-side border of the card – it tells you that Palmer was absolutely the focus of the photographer!

Great card!!!
