this is one of my favorite cards. 1991 topps carlton fisk. i did not buy any 1990 topps. the first year in 12 years that i didn't buy topps. i hated that set. didn't care for 1988 or 1989 at the time, so couldn't bring myself to buy 1990 - the third year in a row of bad design. when i saw the 1991 cards, though, i jumped back in with a fury. better design, better photos. this was baseball.
so here's hall of famer carlton fisk waiting for the ball while big daddy cecil fielder bears down. a dave bergman type in the background exhorting cecil to slide. perfection.
