1990 Topps Big #70


Card Review: 2.5  These "big" cards were a problem to store back when they were new and the problem has only grown more difficult over the years.  As a kid, it was a nusiance I was happy to deal with as the novelty of these cards far outweighed any problems created by their size.  Today, I waste a lot of time debating whether to store them with the rest of my collection or with other misfit oddball items.

Fun Facts: *Tim Wallach won a Gold Glove in 1990
*Wallach finished 10th in the 1990 NL MVP voting
*Montreal finished 2nd in the NL East in 1990
*This is the only Topps Big card of Wallach not to incorrectly describe him as an Arizona State Sun Devil  (Wallach led Fullerton to the 1979 Nat'l Title)

Number of this card in my collection: 2
