#7 - Tommy Lasorda

This is really one of my favorite cards.  It is an upset that it did not end up higher in the countdown.  1954 Topps is a beautiful set, with many different color options as the backgrounds.  I love how busy the card is and how it comes together.  Big portrait, little black and white posed image, signature, Dodger logo, and it all looks great.  They have a little more room to work with, as these cards are a bit larger than the standard size you see in the years to come.  It has been a couple months since I last updated the population, but at last check there was 125 PSA 8's with 11 graded higher.

I added the back of the card today, because I had to show all of you the crazy story on the back.  I am amazed I have not heard Tommy tell the story about this fight 100 times already.  Also noticing his 1953 line on the back, he appeared quite lucky with all of those walks and hits allowed.  When you see the greatness of 1954 Topps you can tell this is truly a case of "they don't make them like they used to."
