George Foster ‘Fab Five’ – Card #2 – 1982 Topps “In Action”
Now that my George Foster collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.
Card #2 – 1982 Topps ‘In Action’
I am a big fan of the ‘In Action’ baseball cards that Topps issued in both their 1972 and 1982 sets. I am also very happy to see them make their return in the 2012 Topps Archives set too.
As for the card of Foster, it offers a great look at Foster’s high-arm batting stance right as he is preparing to tear into the pitcher’s offering.
Foster was as strong of a slugger as there was – and he could crush the ball as far as almost anyone in the league.
The only picture that Topps could have used that would have been better would be one of him in the follow-through of a swing that just connected and sent the ball soaring.
I LOVE THIS CARD!!!
