Allow me to indulge in a fantasy card for the 1977 Topps set: a card commemorating the Cincinnati Reds’ MVP dominance during the 1970’s:
I came across this nice photo of Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench and Pete Rose and immediately thought of creating the card above.
I wish George Foster was also in the shot considering he’d also win an
MVP that very season, giving the Reds SIX MVP’s in eight seasons, but
this will do for now.
The trio shown on the card here would take home five of those awards,
with Bench winning in 1970 and 1972, Rose in 1973 and Morgan in 1975 and
What an incredible run they had, helping them to four World Series appearances and two championships in 1975 and 1976.
