1973 Topps All Star Cards : American League Outfield

After winning the MVP in the 1970 All Star game, Carl Yastzemski went 0-3 in both the 1971 and 1972 midsummer classic.

Bobby Murcer hit a career high 33 homers in 1972 and was awarded the Gold Glove. In his 2nd All Star game he was hitless in 3 at bats.

Reggie Jackson had a double and a single in the 1972 All Star game but was stranded on base both times. In the 1972 ALCS Jackson stole home in game 5 to help the A's win the pennant, but the hamstring injury sustained on that play prevented him from playing in the World Series.
