Carlton Fisk Countdown: #8


Card #8 on the countdown is the 1982 Topps In Action card of Carlton. How bad does your photography have to be for you to need to single out cards that have action in them? This picture is a home run though. It shows Carlton in the good uniform from the time period sprawling out to catch a ball. This is a great card that I have liked since I first picked it up. This is one of the first regular issue Topps cards of Carlton. They got off to a good start.
A side note: I received one of those gift packs as a kid that had cards of all different varieties, but no stars in them one year for Christmas. On the back of a Reggie Cleveland card from this set was the back of this card. A misprint more than an error it is one of the oddball cards in my collection.
