AWESOME CARD- 1972 IN-ACTION TOMMY DAVIS

I have always thought the Tommy Davis “In Action” card was one of the best of the 1972 sub-set by Topps.
Check it out:


What a great in-game photo used for the horizontal format card!
Looks like New York Yankee Horace Clarke is taking a running lead while Davis is coming off the bag on the pitch.
Now THAT is doing an “In Action” card right! Wish they were all this good instead of cards like Bob Barton, etc.
One last thought: interesting to remember that between 1949 and 1998, Tommy Davis was the ONLY Major League player to reach 150+ runs batted in for a season, when he did so in 1962, funny enough the ONLY time he even topped 100 in his 18-year career.
Go figure...

  1. That doesn't look like Yankee Stadium - is it?
