Today is my wife’s birthday, and while I won’t say how old she is, I can say that I put together the 1986 Topps set for a specific reason. For that reason, throughout the day I will post a few of my favorite ’86 Topps cards. The posts will be short and to the point, as I have other things to do today other than talk about baseball cards.
#260, Tony Pena
This card has all of the elements of a great card: catcher’s gear, action shot, nice color scheme. Pena is one of those catcher’s that has been on the peripheral of my collecting. I respect his career and appreciate that he played for some of my favorite teams: Pirates, Red Sox, and Astros.
