#392 Dave Winfield All-Star

Why this card is awesome: Because it took 392 cards, but Topps finally did it! They got an entire player's head completely engulfed in shadows! Good thing Winfield's million-dollar smile still lights up the card.

I think this is the first All-Star card we've seen so far where the player on the front doesn't make the leaderboard on the back. Winfield was such a big guy that we often forget that he was a great baserunner and actually stole 15 or more bases in a season 8 different times.

Hall of Fame count: 27
