1966 Topps All Star Cards : National League Infield

The 1965 N.L. All Star infield was cornered by 2 of my all-time favorite players. Ernie Banks and Dick Allen. The 2 guys in the middle aren't to shabby either.

1966 Topps Ernie Banks All Star

 After 8 straight All Star seasons, Mr. Cub was left off the All Star squad in 1963 and 64. In 1965 he returned to the starting line up and went 2 for 4 at the plate.

1966 Topps Pete Rose All Star

Pete Rose went hitless in his first of 17 career All Star games.

1966 Topps Maury Wills All Star

In 1965 Will led the N.L. in stolen bases for the 6th consecutive season with 94 thefts. 

1966 Topps Richie Allen All Star

After winning the 1964 Rookie of the Year award, Dick Allen was chosen to start the 1965 All Star game at 3rd base. He went 1 for 3 at the plate and was relieved in the bottom of the 5th by Ron Santo.
