1989 Topps Turn Back The Clock – Card #4 – Gil Hodges & The 1969 Baseball Season

1989 Topps Turn Back The Clock – Card #4 – Gil Hodges & The 1969 Baseball Season

“Twenty Years Ago”

This card is card #4 from the 1989 Topps ‘Turn Back The Clock Set’.  The card features Gil Hodges’ 1969 Topps baseball card on the front and recalls some of the greatest highlights from the ’69 season on the back.

A few of my favorites from that year:

  • Willie McCovey’s 2 home runs in the All-Star game
  • The Chicago Cubs’ potential for a miracle season
  • Tom Seaver’s amazing season in which he won 78% of his starts
