Topps All-Time Fan Favorites Favorites N-P

Topps put out 150 card sets of retired players in 2003-2004-2005. Players are pictured on card designs from their playing days but with different photos than were in the originals. Here are my favorites, alphabetically.

2003 #67

1956 design. Boys of Summer pitcher Don Newcombe. Don was 27-7 in 1956.

2003 #92

1969 design. If Phil's pitching that's a balk. (I know, he not even on the mound). Phil was 23-13 in 1969.

2004 #8

1966 design. This is a very "clean" looking card. Lots of blue!

2004 #138

1962 design. In 1962 the Cubs made Buck the first African-American coach to coach in the major leagues.

2003 #17

1963 design. Who doesn't like Joe Pepitone?


1967 design. Nice card overall of The Big Red Machine's popular Tony Perez.

2005 #97

1952 design. The 1952 backs actually gives you the players hair color. Pesky's is brown. 1952 saw Johnny traded to the Detroit Tigers on June 3 along with Walt Dropo, Fred Hadfield, Don Lenhardt, and Bill Wight, for Hoot Evers, George Kell, Johnny Lipon and Dizzy Trout.

2003 #73

Another 1956 design. Great design, interesting guy. Jimmy hit .293 in '56 with 40 doubles.

2005 #84

1955 design. Another of the Boys of Summer, Brooklyn pitcher Johnny Podres was World Series MVP in 1955. He beat the hated Yankees twice, in game's 3 and 7.

2003 #28

1970 design. The 60'-70's Orioles are still one of my favorite teams and in 1970 Big Boog was the AL MVP, smacking 35 HR's and driving in 114. He hit 2 home runs in the World Series win over the Reds as well.


  1. Would you trade that Piersall? and do you have any other All Time Fan Favotites Red Sox? Here is the list of them that I need.

    03 121 Yaz and 147 Boggs
    04 I need 17 Scott and 75 Yaz.
    05 I need 69 Lonborg

    Let me know if you have any to trade.

  2. There's a great Topps Archives auto of that exact Boog picture. I didn't realize until now that the same exact card was used in both sets.
