1980 Topps Kirk Gibson

Detroit Tigers CTNW Fan Favorites #5

It's hard to beleive that Kirk Gibson was never an All Star. He was voted MVP in 1988 while on the Dodgers and recieved MVP votes in 1981, 1984 and 1985 while on the Tigers. He also has 2 World Series rings. One from the 1984 Tigers and the other in 1988 when he hit that memorable homerun off Dennis Eckersley in Los Angeles.  Gibson was a September call-up in 1979 but wouldn't appear on cardboard until 1981.
