2001 Topps Archives – 1974 Topps League Leaders Card – 1973 Home Run Leaders

Wow, that headline is a mouthful, huh??

But it’s worth it.  Especially when you get to celebrate and acknowledge the home run hitting prowess of Reggie Jackson and Willie Stargell.

These two guys were mashing home runs as a solid rate in 1973.  And this card from the 2001 Topps Archives set that features the 1974 Topps design does a nice job commemorating their efforts.

Here is the card:

 

VINTAGE REGGIE.WILLIE

Stargell led all of baseball with 44 home runs in 1973.  Reggie was pretty far behind with 32 as the American League leader.

  1. Folks tend to forget what a monster Pops was. If you asked random fans who had 44 HR in ’73, Pops or Reggie, most would say Jackson. First time I saw this card I know my eyes fell out.
