Carlton Fisk Countdown #50


This card is from the Fleer set that commemorated the 100th Anniversary of the Boston Red Sox. It is on here for a couple of reasons. First of all I like the old time look of the picture. Most of the cards on the countdown lately have been of Carlton at the end of his career. This one shows him in his prime. The second reason is part of that as well. Part of what makes the card so nice is the uniforms. I love the old school Red Sox unis. If he would have had the horizontal striped socks on it would have been even better. The catcher behind him has what appears to be an old Indians or Orioles uniform on. It looks like the old red top indians uniforms that they wore at the end of the seventies. It is just a small time machine into the seventies.
