1967 Topps Tony Perez All Star MVP

Going Horizontal

In a marathon All Star game, all 3 runs came off solo homeruns in 1967. Dick Allen drew first blood leading off the 2nd. He took AL starter Dean Chance to deep center. In the 6th Brooks Robinson blasted a Fergie Jenkins pitch over the left field fence to tie the game at 1. After 8 more scoreless frames Tony Perez broke the stalemate. Catfish Hunter was pitching his 5th inning when Perez cleared the left field fence to put the Nationals ahead for good in the top of the 15th inning.
