Rickey Henderson 1988 Topps Glossy All-Star

Rickey Henderson 1988 Topps Glossy All-Star

As a card-collecting kid in the 1980’s, I loved these ‘extra’ cards that Topps gave us that extended beyond their base products.

These 1987 All-Star cards were offered up as a bonus card inside of all 1988 Topps rack packs.

For player collectors, it gave us the ability to add another card to our collections – and for me personally, I not only built the complete sets but always made sure that I grabbed enough singles for my PC’s too.

This is the card of Rickey Henderson from the 1988 set.

I love that swing!!!  So much power coming from his legs – a true driver of the ball!

  1. How intimidating was he? Pitchers had to fear him not only at the plate but on the base paths. Hendo could make a really good pitcher look really, really bad…really, really fast!
