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.

Can't go wrong with that card. One of my favorites.

Nice! I've been meaning to post a Wynn signed card, too. The oldest Wynn card I have is the '65 with the Astros. I might have the '64 issue for the .45s. That's the only card for him with them, I believe (#38). I don't see it on my have list or my want list, but I'm pretty sure I have it. I'll check for an extra and get back with you if I do.
