George Brett 1984 Topps
Simply stated, I love this baseball card!!
So many of the cards I have scored for my George Brett collection feature him either at the plate hitting or doing something candid.
Very few of them capture him playing defense. And this card from the 1984 Topps base set does just that – and it does it very, very well.
Have a look:
While his defensive play could never hold a match to the offensive output that Brett offered, he was a solid defender and even won a Gold Glove Award in 1985.
One of the things that I always recall about Brett was that his uniform was often covered in some shade of Orange from the clay on the field. Surely some of that was picked up from playing ‘D’ at the ‘Hot Corner’.
