When the Card Fits the Player

I have been looking for cards that fit the player to a T. 1982 Topps #610 is a perfect example. Snagged on eBay for $15 bucks.
The all-time stolen base king (1,406 swipes) is shown edging his way off first base. In my time, Rickey goes down as one of the top 3 most dominating players. He single handedly changed games with his speed on the bases. When pitchers tried not walking him, he cranked home runs (297 career/81 to lead off games).

Inducted into the Hall-of-Fame with 94.8% of the vote. Who are the dickhead sports writers that don't think Rickey is a first ballot Hall-of-Famer?

  1. No doubt that Rickey was a force to be reckoned with.

    Nice card as well.
