George Foster ‘Fab Five’ – Card #5 – 1986 Topps

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!
