1978 Topps Baseball #351 - Jeff Torborg
Jeff Torborg was a backup catcher with the LA Dodgers and the California Angels from 1965-1973.  Jeff was born in Plainfield, New Jersey. My father was born there a year earlier. I wonder if they knew each other.  Torborg was tasked with replacing Frank Rob...

1978 Topps Baseball #350 - Steve Garvey
Even though Steve Garvey was a Dodger, his cards were always among the most desired by the kids on my block. Steve had a good year in 1978, leading the NL with 202 hits. He was an NL All Star for the fifth of eight straight seasons. He was on the NL All Sta...

1978 Topps Baseball #349 - Rick Camp
Rick Camp was a middle reliever for the Braves in 1978. He started four games in June and July and those starts may have landed him on the disabled list. Rick's first start came on June 27. He had pitched 1.2 innings on June 25. Then he made a relief appear...

1978 Topps Baseball #348 - Del Unser
Although Del Unser played for several teams, I always think of him as a Phillie. Perhaps it's because the first card I saw of him was the 1974 card and he was pictured with the Phillies. Or perhaps it was because he was a member of the famous 1980 Philadelp...

1978 Topps Baseball #347 - Terry Forster
Terry Forster left the Pittsburgh Pirates after the 1977 season and signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers as a free agent. Terry's signing was done early enough for Topps to airbrush him into a Dodger uniform for his 1978 card. Forster led a talented Dodger s...

1978 Topps Baseball #344 - Sam Ewing
There are some rough looking cards in this part of my set. I'll need to get a card lot or something to replace some of these. This was Sam Ewing's last major league season. After the season he went to Japan for the 1979 season. Sam Ewing had some good years...

1978 Topps Baseball #341 - Mike Flanagan
Mike Flanagan was an all-star for the only time in his career in 1978. It's a bit odd that he made the AL All Star team in 1978 but didn't make it in 1979 (his Cy Young year). 1978 Stats : 19-15, 4.05 ERA in 40 starts 1978 Highlights : May 23 - Allowed two ...
