Today we celebrate the solid career of second baseman Tony Taylor with a "Super Veteran" card I designed as part of the 1976 set.
Take a look:
Taylor was closing out a nice 19-year career in 1976 after returning for three seasons with the team he starred for between 1960 and 1971, the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Cuban garnered over 2000 hits, 1000 runs scored, and 230 stolen bases to go along with his .261 career batting average.
His best season in the big leagues would arguably be 1963, when he hit .281 with 102 runs scored, 180 hits, 20 doubles, 10 triples and five homers while getting some "M.V.P. attention" for the only time in his career (16th place) in National League voting.
Here's to you Tony...
