1975 Topps Al Kaline

Detroit Tigers CTNW Fan Favorites #2

Known as "Mr. Tiger", Al Kaline played all 22 seasons in Detroit. During that time he was named to 18 All Star teams and received 10 Gold Gloves. In 1955 he was the youngest player to lead the American League in hitting at the age of 20. He retired after the 1974 season with 3007 career hits. He was a first-ballor Hall of Famer in 1980.

Kaline actually did have a 1975 Topps card but not a regular issue card. It was a highlight card commemorating his 3000th hit.
