1990 Topps #370
Card Review: 9.0 Not a great picture on this card, but I find it to be a Topps design that has aged very well. From the taxi cab checkers on the back to the perfect period design on the front, I find it to be similar to the the way the '68 and '72 designs fit the year. I would have just preferred a different photo to go with the great design. I know this upsets some collector's to no end, but I really find the '90 Topps set to be the sister design to the '75 set.
Fun Facts: *Tim's 2003 Topps fan favorites card was done in the mold of the '90 Topps (and featured much better photo selection)
* Tim was an an All-Star, won a Gold-Glove, and finished 10th in MVP voting in 1990
* Despite being an All-Star and Gold-Glove winner in '89 Tim was not featured on an All-Star card in the 1990 set.
Number of this card in my collection: 130
