#713 - Ryne Sandberg All-Star
What a card: Ryne Sandberg hit a league-best and career-high 19 triples in 1984. His next-highest total during his career was eight.
My observation on the front: This is one of Sandberg's better baseball cards.
More opinion from me: Sandberg looks very young here, maybe the youngest he's looked on a major league card.
All-Star Game performance: Sandberg went 1-for-4 in the 1984 All-Star Game, reaching first on an infield single and stealing second base.
Legitimate All-Star card or fake All-Star card: Legitimate. Sandberg started the '84 game and played until the end.
My observation on the back: The two players tied with 173 hits are Dave Parker of the Reds and Johnny Ray of the Pirates.
