A Card I wish I had
Dave Kingman was always one of my favorite players. He is from a small town in Eastern Oregon. In 1977 Dave embarked on a tour of major league baseball. At a time when there were only four divisions in the leagues, Dave played in all four that year. He went from the Mets to the Padres to the Angels to the Yankees. He hit .238 with 11 home runs for the Padres in 56 games that year. I have never seen a Padres card of him. I have only ever seen two pictures of him as a Padre. I wish next time Topps does a fan favorite set that they would do cards of Dave in the '77 style with the Padres and Angels.
Team collectors do you have a player that you wish you had a card of? Someone that played for your favorite team but never got on a card. Who is it?
