1973 Topps 1972 All Star Game

Tonight is the All Star Game Home Run Derby. How better to commemorate this occasion than an All Star card featuring the Home Run King. Here he is in 1972 crossing the plate after his 2 run blast put the N.L. ahead 2-1 in the 6th inning. The A.L. regained the lead with their own 2 run blast by Cookie Rojas. Billy Williams would score the tying run in the bottom of the 9th on a fielder's choice. In the 10th Joe Morgan got the game winning RBI and the MVP.
