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.
