1975 Topps, Jimmy Wynn
#570 Jimmy Wynn
Here is the last '75 Topps that will be on here for a few months. It's a shame. These four cards went by way too fast.
I got this card signed at Astros Fanfest. Jimmy was really nice and I talked to him for a bit about the Willie Wilson Classic. He was there last year and I asked if he was going to be back again this year. He said that he hoped so; if they ask him to attend again, he'll be there.
Unfortunately, this is the only card of Jimmy that I could find prior to heading down to Houston. I searched and searched the box of old cards at the shop and this was the only one that I could find. I was hoping to find one at the cardshow that was going on during fanfest and I did. But, it was an '86 off-brand card. That really wasn't what I was looking for. If the Royals put a roster for the Classic out soon enough, I may try to obtain an old Colt 45s card of him to get signed.
