Fun Cards: Topps Now TBTC for April 11

Yesterday was all about the homer, with five of the six cards featuring a home run highlight. Today we get to see some more pitching prowess from the Reds of the past. First though, we’ll start off with a home run…

Klu

Ted Kluszewski launched a home run that represented the Reds’ sole run in a loss to the Cubs. Not really noteworthy, but it’s Big Klu.

O'Toole

Jim O’Toole is one of the best pitchers in Reds history. In 1961 he held the Cubs to four hits on Opening Day.

Concepcion

For a light-hitting shortstop, Dave Concepcion had some pretty big hits, including a grand slam against the Braves in 1979.

Price

Yesterday’s obscure player from the ’80s was Nick Esasky…today it’s Joe Price. I had a ton of Price cards growing up. He was one of those guys that seemed to be in almost every pack.

Rijo

We will end the post with one of the most underrated pitchers in the 1990s, Jose Rijo.
