Jim Abbott ‘Fab Five’ – Card #5 – 1993 Topps
Now that my Jim Abbott player collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.
Card #5 – 1993 Topps
The 1993 Topps baseball card design is an underrated one – at least in my opinion. I like the card’s simple player name and team banners and I especially like the oversized photo.
As for Jim Abbott’s card from this set, I really, really like it – and I am usually not a big fan of the zoomed-in photo…
But, the photographer really took us in with this card. We get all of the details – from how Abbott held the glove on his non-pitching hand to the grips he uses on what appears to be a curve-ball.
