Default 1979 Topps A's prospects Rickey Henderson the cards that never were!

I love the multi-player rookie cards as they represent the time when the player was still new and not good enough to warrant having his own card...capturing the essence of being a rookie.

1979 Topps were the first cards I opened as packs as a kid and my first time putting a set together. HOW EXCITING would it have been if that card existed. I know the 1980 is iconic and looks really nice, I would still have voted for that 79 card.

Thanks for posting that!

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980's.
