1968 Topps Game – Jim Lonborg

1968 Topps Game – Jim Lonborg

Jim Lonborg had a fantastic season in 1967, which is probably why he was placed into the special set the following year.

The stats from 1967 – 39 games started, 22-9 record, 15 complete games, 2 shutouts, 246 strikeouts, 83 walks, 3.16 ERA, All-star appearance, and 1 shiny Cy Young Award!!! 

Progress – 4/33

Willie McGee 2004 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites

Willie McGee 2004 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites

OK, so as we all know, the All-Time Fan Favorites baseball card set issued by Topps in 2004 celebrates the player’s best season or seasons in the major leagues.

And for Willie McGee, 1985 was quite a season!!

McGee was the NL MVP in ’85, and was the offensive leader of the St.Louis Cardinals.  Here are a few numbers to drool over:  216 hits, .353 batting average, 26 doubles, 18 triples, 10 home runs, 56 stolen bases, 82 RBI, and 114 runs scored.

McGee was an All-Star in 1985, and he also captured a Gold Glove Award, Silver Slugger trophy, MVP Title, and trip to the World Series.

Att Boy Willie!!!  

Reggie Jackson 1985 Topps Circle K Collector’s Series Baseball Card

Reggie Jackson 1985 Topps Circle K Collector’s Series Baseball Card

On the rather dull side, at least the card offers us an extra-large image.  Too bad this one is now showing Reggie crushing one of the 123 home runs that he crushed as a member of the California Angels.

Here is the card:

Still a nice oddball pick-up of Mr. October!

Wade Boggs 1989 Fleer MVP’s

Wade Boggs 1989 Fleer MVP’s

While he never ended up winning the MVP award during his playing days, there is no questioning Boggs’ worth to the Boston Red Sox during the time he spent with the team.

And in 1989, he was fantastic yet again.  The numbers:  205 hits, .330 batting average, .430 on-base percentage, 51 doubles, 7 triples, 54 RBI, and 113 runs scored.  Boggs struck out just 51 times in 742 plate appearance in 1989 as well.  He was an AL All-Star, and a winner of the Silver Slugger Award too.

Very valuable indeed!!
