George Foster ‘Fab Five’ – Card #3 – 1977 Topps

George Foster ‘Fab Five’ – Card #3 – 1977 Topps

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

Card #3 – 1977 Topps

This card makes the list simply due to the sheer fear that Foster strikes in opposing pitchers with the famous scowl that appears on his face when at the plate.

Everything that I have read about Foster says that he was a quiet and religious man who never really had issues with teammates or opposing players.

And that may be fact, but if I were looking at this guy and I had to throw pitches in his direction, my knees would be shaking…

Take a look:

Foster was a dominant force in 1977.  His efforts of 52 home runs, 124 runs scored, and 149 RBI led to his winning of the 1977 NL MVP Award.
