Carlton Fisk Countdown: #3

We are now to the top 3. Today’s card is the 1973 Topps card of Carlton. He was voted onto the Topps All Rookie team so he has the trophy in the bottom left hand corner of his picture. This card was also signed by Carlton at the same card show as the #4 on the countdown. He not only won the Topps Trophy, but won the rookie of the year for his 1972 season. He was the first unanimous selection for the award. He also won the gold glove that season. With all of these awards just from his rookie season you would expect that everyone predicted great things for Pudge. Actually early in his career people thought that he was injury prone, and would not last. It must have been interesting for them to see him play all the way through 1993.
