George Foster ‘Fab Five’ – Card #5 – 1986 Topps
Now that my George Foster collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.
Card #5 – 1986 Topps
I didn’t think that a non-Reds card of Foster would crack the ‘Fab Five’ but one did. And while I will not give any hints about the next four cards to be featured, I will say that this is the only non-Reds card in the group.
I like the 1986 design – I have fondly tagged it as the ‘Stencil Set’ due to its very basic and elementary design.
As for this specific card, I just really like the way that Foster looks. He is a flashback to the 1970’s, and his style remains true to that decade.
Have a look:
Today’s equivalent would be a baseball card featuring a player wearing Crocs while doing stretches in the outfield. Imagine Prince Fielder or Ichiro… LOL!
