1977 Topps Baseball #434 - Turn Back The Clock Carl Yastrzemski

  • At the time, Carl Yastrzemski's Triple Crown wasn't as big of a deal. Frank Robinson had accomplished the feat the previous year. But it took 45 years for another player (Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers) to win another Triple Crown.
  • Yaz deserved his unanimous selection as the 1967 AL MVP. I can't imagine the Red Sox finishing in the first division without him.
