Tony Gwynn 2000 Topps Gallery
I’ve always been a big fan of baseball cards that feature an image of the player signing autographs inside the stadium or ballpark. I find it a neat way to celebrate the player. And while many in today’s game only do it when a camera is on them, guys like Tony Gwynn more than likely did it because they wanted to.
Imagine being in the right field stands perched right behind third base and #19 is headed your way.
What a truly great experience that would be and surely one that the lucky fans who were able to meet Mr. Gwynn will never forget.
This card of Tony Gwynn from the 2000 Topps Gallery set is a fantastic reminder that Gwynn was the consummate professional, and a very fan-friendly player and ambassador for the game.
A great addition to my collection!
