Topps 60 Best Cards...#42!

Now that Topps has finally brought the public up to speed on their countdown of their greatest cards of all-time as voted on by the collecting public, this morning, they announced which card took in the 43rd most votes.

Card #42 is...

(drumroll please)

1983 Topps #482 Tony Gwynn

Thoughts: One of the three important RC's in the 1983 Topps set (along with HOF's Wade Boggs and Ryne Sandberg), Gwynn is sporting the unfamiliar, "destined-to-start-the-season-in-the-minors" number 53. He sure showed the Padres that he was worth keeping around huh? At #42, this card is a lot lower than I thought it should be (at least in the mid '30s), but then again, the other '83 card (Wade Boggs) showed up at #59.

Beckett has this listed between $10.00-$25.00 (January 2011)

Card #41 on the countdown will be announced tomorrow.
