2009 Topps Bill Plummer

At the request of Johngy’s Beat, here is a 2009 Topps “fun card” of former Reds backup catcher Bill Plummer. I don’t know much about Plummer, mainly because he was stuck behind a Hall of Fame backstop during his Cincinnati days. While searching for photos to use, I also discovered a bassist named Bill Plummer, who released a very trippy psychedelic album in 1967 called Bill Plummer And The Cosmic Brotherhood. Just listen to this stuff:

Now that you are thoroughly tripped out, here’s a second Bill Plummer 2009 Topps card, with a different pose and a facsimile autograph to boot!

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any “action” shots of Plummer, either behind the plate or batting. That’s the curse of playing backup to Johnny Bench.

  1. Wow you work fast. My friend and I started he Backup Catcher Hall of Fa,me (BCHOF) and Plummer was in our first class of inductees.
    My favorite Plummer story is that longtime Coach Alex Grammas stated that Plummer could be a starter on many teams. I love backup catchers and Plummer was one of my favorites, but even for those days, his .188 career average might not merit starter status.

  2. Not fast, just off work. 🙂 I can do these things all night when I’m not working.

  3. Well, I love it and I appreciate the effort (on behalf of myself and the BCHOF).
    Soto is officially on his way to you.
