1960 Topps Cincinnati Reds Card - Crosley Field Painting
This 1960 Topps Cincinnati Reds card (featuring Frank Robinson, Gus Bell and Jerry Lynch) has a surprise on the back - an original Lost Ballparks painting of Crosley Field. Artist Michael Koser always leaves a little bit of the original card visible through the painting, so you will notice the Topps card # "352" above the LF wall. This item is 1 of 1.
Robinson was a 14X All Star, 2X World Series Champion and the only player in baseball history to win an MVP in both the National and American League.
The Reds played at Crosley Field from 1912-1970. On May 24, 1935 it hosted the first MLB night game. The section of seats beyond the RF wall was known as the "Sun Deck" during day games and the "Moon Deck" during night games. The two buildings you see beyond the RF deck still exist today.
Card is ungraded.
