Set: 1981 Topps

Card: #135 Gorman Thomas


“ Love it! ” -carthage44

“ First set I ever collected. Also, Bruce Sutter striking out Gorman Thomas to end the 1982 World Series is my favorite sports memory of my childhood. ” -switzr1

“ This guy hit more home runs than Paul Molitor, Robin Yount, Kirk Gibson and has 9 more than Derek Jeter. However, a .225 career batting average isn't gonna punch your ticket to the Hall (for what that's worth nowadays). ” -Id8jlb8666

“ Outfield, based on the photo I can only assume, means outside the field, looking in? ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This is really a lame card design, but it's also a fine portrait of Stormin' Gorman, because it makes you realize that in a not-too-radically-different timeline, he could be looking out thru barbed wire in a prison exercise yard in the same pose. ” -revnorb

“ Another one of my scans and in a set that I like. The 1981 Topps set contains some Baseball greats while the set is reasonably priced. ” -sltyeager

“ Looks like he's waiting to be adopted. ” -MAS

“ YES!!! ” -SSG Temple

“ Back when spring training fields were high school-quality. ” -jlaz10
