2010 Topps ‘Legendary Lineage’ With Bob Gibson & Tim Lincecum
I really like cards like these and I am always eager to see who Topps pairs with some of the great players from our current era of baseball. And while it would be impossible to reach a 100% consensus on a topic that can be so opinionated, I think that they do a pretty good job with their pairings.
This card features legendary Bob Gibson and a modern-day phenom, Tim Lincecum
A few years removed from the 2010 release, we have seen a sharp decline in the dominance of Lincecum over the last few baseball seasons. Sure, he is still striking out a very respectable number of hitters, but his dominance on the mound is not what it once was – the wins are down and so is the overall effectiveness.
But, back in 201o, Tim Lincecum was the real-deal!! His ability to cruise through innings as he mowed down batter after batter was unparalleled – and it all led to wins.
I’d love to see him bounce back to his original form!!!
