Carlton Fisk Countdown: #43


This is the 1978 regular edition Topps card of Carlton Fisk. This card is now 30 years old. That is hard to believe for me. Maybe because the card came out two years after the year I was born. It is a very simple design, but one that I really like. The team name in cursive at the bottom with the player name next to it. Players like Carlton that were part of the 1977 All Star Game also received a shield on their card.
The other thing that I have always like about this card is the fact the he looks as if he just saw the most amazing thing in the world. He has the mouth slightly open look of someone who cannot believe what he just saw.
