Set: 1979 Topps

Card: #350 Garry Templeton

“ Good looking card! ” -trauty

“ It's been a while since we have had a Topps flagship card come up. Surprising considering how many people consider that the be all end-all of the hobby. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I did not realize Garry Templeton played so long. I remember him from late 80's, early 90's cards when he was with the Padres. I like the nostalgia of the 79 set but being objective I get tired of all the white borders on cards and the green on black on the back makes those parts a little difficult to read. ” -davidhandberry

“ Great pose in front of a great background. ” -carthage44

“ Classic design, one of my favorites. But this photo. Dear god, i would hate to see the photos that didnt make it. ” -parsley24

“ Irony - clicking on the link to see this card's page - and seeing the 1979 Topps set's sample image together with this. Templeton continued to be a very good SS although his BA fell off drastically once he hit SD. Additionally, this was my first set I put together from packs, so I naturally have a soft spot for any cards from it. ” -vrooomed

“ Very nice Pre-1980 vintage Baseball. It looks like Garry is making some kind of bird call. Well he was on the Cardinals at the time. ” -captkirk42

“ Great player who struck out too much. Traded for Ozzie Smith. Templeton batted over 300 numerous times. ” -cjjt

“ "I got traded for who?" ” -Splinter_9

“ Love the set and love this card. The bricks behind him make what would normally be a boring card really cool. ” -muskie027
